Just splurged and got the following:
- SB-600 Speedlight,
- Samsung 2493HM 24" 1920x1200 DVI/HD monitor [PC Pro 'A' List June '08: http://www.pcpro.co.uk/labs/206889/samsung-syncmaster-2493hm.html
- PowerColor HD 2600 PRO 512MB DDR2 Dual DVI HDCP HDTV Graphics Card
- Nikon D300 Field Guide
My PC had a cheapo graphics card on the motherboard which shared the main system memory - now I've added a dedicated video card the whole system has speeded up a lot.
THe monitor came with calibration software too - not sure that I know what I'm doing with this but it may be handy in future.
Looking at Cameralabs forum on the new monitor is fantastic but I'm going to have to reign my spending in for a little while - the missus just asked me how much it all cost
Unfortunately the Nikon 50mm F/1.4 is going to have to wait
When I took up photography I didn't have a clue how expensive it was going to be!
