    New stuff! Who wants another Sabertooth Z77?!

    Case: NZXT Switch 810 Black
    Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth Z77
    Power Supply: NZXT Hale82 750W
    Processor: i5-3570k [email protected]
    CPU Cooler: Corsair H100 p/p (2xAerocool Shark White pushing, 2xCM Excalibur pulling)
    Memory: GSkill Ripjaws Z Series 4x4GB 2133Mhz
    Graphics Card: EVGA GeForce 560 Ti (w/Backplate)
    Hard Drive: Crucial M4 128GB SSD
    Storage Drive: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200 RPM

    It passed a full OCCT 1hr test, but evidently taking the screenshot didn't work for the OC thread.. Ugh, gotta run it again.

    Was just gonna wait for next-gen series, probably grab a "780" or w/e whenever it comes out.

    in the official statement Nvidia made a while back, they said they are not sure if the Geforce series will ever see the GK110, the GK104 is so far more than enough for gaming,
    currently they are planning on the GK110 being used for Teslas and Quadros, with a remote possibility to see a Geforce card sometime late this year depending on what AMD releases, otherwise nothing till Q1/Q2 of 2013

    Boo. We'll see then. Maybe a 670/680 within the next couple months.

    I guess it makes sense to put the really high-end stuff in the workstation cards, that you can charge thousands for (I think the latest fermi Quaddro card was something like 4500 dollars) and will actually see sales at such a high price.

    I'm rather sad we never saw a GTX 660 or 660 ti. Of course they may still be on the way, but I feel nVidia are lagging behind here very badly.

    It seems like we've hit a plateau. There's nowhere to go in terms of improving performance, because 1920x1080 has remained the dominant resolution for quite a while now (thank the HDTV market and XB360 for stagnating that IMO), Very few people like multi monitor spanning due to weird compatibility issues/wires/the existence of plastic bezels, and 120hz scan and 3D tech is hardly cost effective right now. :|

    And the fact that you need about 75 inches (nearly 2 metres) of desk width to accommodate three 23" monitors if you include bezels.

    Monitors are measured diagonally.
    To use the U2312HM as the reference 23" screen here, they are 546mm/~21.5" in width, including bezel, meaning 1638mm/~64.5" total, or ~1.64m.
    For 27", I'll use S27A850T as it has thinner bezels. It's 642.5mm/~25.3" in width, for three you get 1927.5mm/~75.89", or ~1.93m.
    Still less than the 2m you said, albeit larger than 75". Then, if you use a mountarm for it, or just the less feet, you actually won't need that big of a desk, not to mention that you don't position them straight, but rather concavely.

    Ah yes, forgot that was the diagonal measurement.

    The PS3 is capable of outputting true 1080p resolutions in games. Thing is, whether or not the game developer wants to do that is beyond their control. The 360 on the other hand will only allow 720p in games (as far as I can tell), and even the dashboard.

    In fact, most games on consoles right now have staggeringly different "true" resolutions. For example, Uncharted's "native" resolution running on a PS3 is 960W x 1080H. So basically pixels are doubled horizontally to achieve the illusion of true 1080p. I'm guessing the flat pixels are somewhat hidden by the average TV panel matrix pattern.

    Basically you're right, the problem is developers, indirectly because of these two old consoles. But at least one of them is not strictly 720p only.

    I doubt it can run 1080p. 1080i, perhaps. Either way, that's a topic for another thread.
    Sorry for derailing.

    Image taken with my shoddy phone.



    Not everyday you see a Pentium G850 paired with a GTX 670 =) (Also 16GB of RAM on 2 sticks)

    My motherboard is still in RMA, my GPU which I ordered 25 days ago finally arrived, so why not? :P

    Just bear in mind you'll have some production scratches/stains of black paint (on the white one) on the Switch 810, it's not a huge deal since it's on the parts you can't see from the outside :P

    I don't think that's necessarily something you should claim, inux. Freak accidents happen, and your list of stuff that came in sounded like everything gone wrong.

    I had a singular line of white pain on the mb side of my Azza Hurrican, but it wasn't worth sending it back in for a replacement. Scratches happen, and paint happens. Honestly, as long as it wasn't on the front or top, I don't really care too much lol

    Not really the best place to post it, but I suggest you start a new thread, say you want suggestions and how much you're willing to spend. (Note: be ready to spend a healthy chunk of money if you want a GOOD one.)
