    I love how clean your setup looks (DAT Antec 1200 lights/sidepanel :Q___), plus your room seems cool aswell (I guess watching tv while playing isn't really an option )

    The more I see the noctua d14 the more I want to get one only for the look of it, but I have to fight the temptation! :P

    http://www.lg.com/au/it-monitors/lg-D2743P-3d-monitor this one was supposed to be 120Hz as well but I can't find any info if that is how it turned out to be or if it is using some other technique than 120Hz for 3D.

    You are really making me want to get 2 more monitors wow that looks nice :/

    I'm wondering though really, is the performance impact to fps big if the 670 has to drive another schreen just for browsing/youtube and stuff?
    Right now i can play any game but Crysis at 100-120fps with a single 670 (EVGA FTW). And i would like to stay above the 80 at the very least.

    How come you got a $100+ mouse and keyboard, $200+ headset, $400 GPU and then a $120 CPU?

    And he's about to spend $110 on an H100 to cool his $120 CPU o_O

    Well since he already went with FX4170 there's not much he can do : /

    There's no performance impact when you get a 2nd/3rd screen. Only if you do the Nvidia surround thing & game on 57xx x 1080 resolutions

    I've noticed some people have some pretty sweet looking sleeved cables in their cases, so would something like the Bitfenix Alchemy sets (http://www.bitfenix.com/global/en/pr...lchemy-cables/) be compatible with most modular PSUs? I'm kinda lazy to do it myself.

    They're only extenders, they can't replace the cables.

    But we're drifting offtopic now, if you want to talk about this then go to the Computer Chat thread.

    That'll be fine with 2 680's. BF3 isn't very CPU intensive though
