If you are running multi-monitors, how does the mouse move between them. Im curious, It's something I may try. Also, can you run 2 monitors while still having 2 cards in SLI?

 

My computer is a 2001 Dell Dimension 8200, nothing pretty to see inside. Unless you like spiderwebs or ribbon cables. Not sure which one bothers me more.

 

Actually I would recommend a SLI set up if you are thinking of going with multiple monitors, each monitor requires a DVI/VGA/HDMI port connection and considering most cards on the market (excluding the latest Nvidia & ATI cards) only have 2 display ports.. normally DVI. So more GPU's = More monitors.

 

it's just like having one large monitor but with borders going through your screen. With some games you may have to set it up so the screens all match up but normally they are already set up for you.

Upgraded my computer about two weeks ago:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LI03JuX9_Y

 

Some of the parts:

becyscam001086.jpg

 

 

Coolermaster 932 HAF Case

EVGA X58 FTW3 Motherboard

6GB DDR 1600MHz memory

Intel i7 960 @ 3.6 Ghz

9800 GTX (Upgrading soon)

Coolermaster Hyper n 520 cpu heatsink and fan

Asus DVD drive and Burner

900 watt power supply

Logitech G13 Gamepad, G15 v2 Keyboad, G500 mouse

 

Eventually upgrading to dual 500 or 400 series Nvidia graphics cards for up to quad monitors. Thought about two 5870s and running up to 6, but that's too much.

How do you get the wicked red water cooling? And how much does it cost to hook up a whole comp with water cooling like this? Perhaps different colors?

That's not watercooling, I've just sleeved my PSU with UV reactive sleeving and I've hidden a couple of UV cathodes at the top and bottom. My current build looks entirely different now, I've changed the case and stuck an H50 in there as well. I'll post build pics once I'm finished :thumbup:

That is pretty wicked. Where did you get the cathodes and sleeving? And are there many colors to choose from? I'm thinking I should do something to clean up my case a little. I might post some pics when I'm done but it's nothing special.

I got the cathodes from a shop, and the sleeving on ebay. There are quite a few colours to choose from, but the best sleeving is from MDPC, but it is a little expensive. Cathodes you can get on ebay.

 

Edit:

 

This is the kind of thing I'm doing with the sleeving (this is just a SATA cable, I'm doing the same with the PSU)

All of that and still a top mounted PSU?! Anyway that is a very nice rig.. what else do you do on it apart from gaming? An i7 2600k OC'd will handle most games - 2 server processors aren't needed for that. Spending 5G's is tonnes too o.O

Well the top vs bottom mount is a long standing argument, some say it's better on top others say better on the bottom.

I personally think it depends on the case design, my old coolermaster case was bottom mount and this one is top, temps stay very low even on hot days, hottest running part is the bottom graphics card (67C hottest I've had), if anything the PSU at the bottom with heat travelling towards to top of the case would put more strain on the GPU's, Personally have always found top mount to be fine & in this case (excuse the pun) I think it's working perfect with the design on the case.

 

I tend to use the PC for gaming, graphic design & animation rendering, as well as everything else. I've been a PC builder for about 12 years, I just wanted to build the best at the time, and I have no regrets.

Simples, SR-2 Motherboard only supports Xeon's.

I had to have the SR-2 lol.

I'm not a massive fan of 3D, but this is good, beats the cinema screens anyway.

On RuneScape (Which obviously isn't meant to be 3D) it's pretty good, now on 3D games like Crysis 2 with DX11 and Hi-Res pack its amazing (has a few bugs with the cross-hairs but nothing major)

When you put in a 3D film on a Blu-Ray it's totally worth it, that's when it's at its best imo, I'll mainly use it as a 2D screen, but for some games and movies I will use the 3D again.

Why did you need/want the SR-2 so much?

 

Because I saw a build like this one a website, and decided I would build the same as I wanted a fast powerful rig that could pretty much do anything I wanted, some people pay 7-9k for an Alienware, this computer is half the price and 5 times the power of the best Alienware to date. it's going to last me a longer time than normal, I normally do a complete rebuild every 3 years, but upgrade a lot in between.

 

I'm an enthusiast, simple as that.

Graphics cards will need upgrading in a year or two, processors will last a long time.

Very nice. Got any overclock going on the i5? Also strange because the TX650 in your picture and '530W Pure Power..' don't match up.

Just got a brand new laptop, actually it's a gaming one, but still will be mainly used for college, as my old laptop was when I bought it 3.5 years ago for a 2 year programming course. The old laptop wasn't strong enough and didn't support virtualization which is a huge problem in the course that I am currently following. I bought the Asus G53SW-A1 which was at a low price, being discontinued right after I bought it (got lucky, laptops with similar specs cost $300 more than what I paid). Here are the specs:

 

15.6" screen

Core i7 2630QM processor

8GB of RAM

750GB HDD (7200 rpm)

Nvidia GeForce 460M

Windows 7 Home Premium

 

Here are some pictures:
