    ok right now my monitor is roughly 10inches from my tower. i have heard that the magnets in the hard drives can mess up your monitor if placed too close. although i was never able to confirm this. should i move my tower? i figured 10 inches was plenty. there are no speakers even close to monitor. but i am considering buying a nice new monitor and i woud like to know before i place it where my old one was

    it could just be my monitor it is old and cheap and is getting darker and darker and little lines are beginning to form.

    any thoughts plz

    i wouldnt worry about your HDs messing up your monitor, unless you put a magnet on the screen your okay. definetly keep large powerfull speekers away from your Hard drives they are more sensitive.

    Shouldn't be a prob as long as there is enough room for air flow which there is. With desktops the monitor usually sits on top of the case, you can't get much closer then that:D

    yeah good point. i guess my monitor is dying. im looking at 22" CRT NEC/Mitsubishi monitor for around 610 dollars. the LCDs just dont' cut it while playing games unless you spend over thousand dollars which i don't have
