One of the hard parts about getting older is that your memory tends to go. That gallon of milk you we were supposed to pick up at the store? It's still there, along with the eggs. If only our heads were modular, we could shove a stick of RAM into our noggins for an instant smarty-pants upgrade. Maybe someday. In the meantime, we can give our PCs memory upgrades, which will help with everything from gaming to Photoshop.

It's a bit unusual for a company to release a product without a bunch of fanfare, or at the very least a press release pimping the product's highlights, and that's especially true for gear aimed at gamers. Be that as it may, BenQ has quietly slipped a new gaming oriented monitor into its product lineup, the XL2411T, an apparent successor to the XL2410T we reviewed last year. In lieu of a press release, BenQ used the XL2411T's product page to hype the display, which the company says is "built for victory."
BenQ is getting ready to release a new 22-inch LED display intended for business users, but is sexy enough to find its way into a few homes as well. It's the BenQ BL2201PTE and according to the translated press release, it's available in "classic black." The pictures, however, show a glossy white bezel with somewhat of an Apple flair, but arguably better looking.
BenQ developed the XL2410T with the help of two high-profile Counter-Strike gamers in order to produce one of the first 120Hz, LED-backlit monitors that is 3D capable—although it doesn’t come bundled with Nvidia’s 3D Vision glasses and emitter. You’ll need to buy that kit separately for $150. The TN panel has the advantage of being able to go to portrait mode—one of the few bonus features in this display.
