    I'm actually operating this beauty from my bed :P Perfect for watching movies, shows, playing games or browsing the web. Distance should be something like 1.5m/2m.

    Screen > http://i50.tinypic.com/2ln9rwk.jpg
    Sidewindow, lot's of blue fans > http://i50.tinypic.com/2m6miyf.jpg

    And yes I know it's messy.

    edit:
    This is the cooler on the CPU by the way: http://www.jaceycomputer.com/jaceywe...20typ%2090.jpg

    Smooth isn't good enough for some people, also if you have more than one monitor, or use something like a 2560*1440 or 2560*1600 27 inch or higher screen one graphics card isn't enough to get high FPS at ultra settings.

    Varies. You certainly give up smooth when you get more GPUs though. (Read: Microstutter. Although people react to that in varied amounts. I couldn't stand a friend who ran CFX with 6850s...)

    Nvidia has improved the microstutter aspect a lot with the 600 series though.

    Both teams improved it a lot, but it's still present. The 690 tried a new thing, but that basically did nothing useful it seems.

    When I got my TDRL (Medical Military stuff) money from the Marine corps I wanted instant gratification instead of waiting for a more powerful Gaming PC to be delivered. So I went to Best Buy and got the best thing I could find.

    HP Elite

    AMD Phenom II 1055T Six Core Processor
    8GB DDR3
    AMD Radeon HD 6570 upgraded to Nvidia Geforce GTX550ti
    1.5TB

    LG Flatron IPS236 23" LED Monitor (Main/Game monitor)
    Basic flat screen HP monitor 17" (Stream/Browser monitor)

    Razer Lycosa
    Razer Naga
    Crappy Trittons, the White ones with red logo and extremely sensetive mic. :P

    http://techreport.com/articles.x/22890/5 Nvidia has a lot better frame times in some of the games according to that test.

    I've seen another report like that before but I can't seem to find it.

    Your link is... curious to say the least. I was going to comment that their choices in games were providing a pretty bias POV, but somehow they've wound up with HD 7970s actually crowning the performance in Battlefield 3. That is odd. I'm gonna have to read more into this particular test.

    Probably has something to do with the fact that they run 3 times 1920x1200 screens.

    Suddenly makes a lot more sense.

    Anyway... we got three six-packs of monsoon compression fittings today. Chrome version. They look good, I have to admit, and you have no idea how much easier they are to work with compared to the normal fittings I've used in the past...






    My brother isn't really into having a showy inside, so we never bothered with finding plugs that matched or anything. Though the more functional style this caused isn't too shabby looking. In the end, only two of the original compression fittings we used are left, mostly because that'd involve removing the rads in the bottom, which I couldn't be arsed to, and see no reason how they'd accomplish leaking under any circumstance.
