Triple the RAM and I like it. What will you do for monitors? An why do you need a Blackmagic card?

Haven't looked in to monitors yet, Dell again seems to have some good deals on the 24". I'm looking for suggestions in the 20-24" range.

I want the Black Magic card for decent color correcting.

Dell's ultrasharp 24" seems very popular.

Maybe I don't understand how the Blackmagic cards work. How does it help with color grading?

Now that I'm researching it more, maybe it won't work for color correction. The theory would be that it gives you hdmi or component out to a broadcast monitor or hdtv. The BM site doesn't say anything specific about using intensity for CC, although forum members seem to use it that way -- similar to how the Matrox MXO's are used.
