    This isn't a quick question/answer thread about build suggestions, please make your own thread for that in the Computer / Build forum and we will gladly answer all your queries

    Don't believe any of the replies you see in this thread regarding your questions (including the reply from Butler Log), they are not supposed to be here.

    Just wanted to show something I found a bit odd about my new soundcard. Are the solder tips usually this tall? e.e

    Mostly thought this was a neat angle. Though there are some odd artifacts popping up in the latest few images.



    Here's a small and silly idea that sprung to mind: It rather looks a little like the result of a modern version of the biblical flood to me when picking certain points.

    I've placed a thin piece of black cardboard over the back of my Xonar to stop dust endlessly settling there.

    I have 2x Dell U2412M's. IPS panels are sweet sauce. Expensive, though. $370 a pop, <programmer> but I'd die without two of them </programmer>.

    They aren't that expensive. I have two LG 23" IPS LED screens that I got for 190 dollars each, mind you that was a sale price but they are nice screens. I want to get a third and mount them all on a single stand.

    Congrats to the 7 fools who made the ignore list, bravo!

    Actually there is quite a big jump in price going from 23" to 24"+, check prices on 23" and you'll see.

    I suppose. 23 inch screens are plenty big enough for me anyway

    I am going to order up a Vibe monitor stand next pay day, then hopefully get 3rd monitor in November.

    Wasn't looking for advice, I already know what I am purchasing/building. I'm not very good with determining the whole "overkill" concept, I just saw a lot of similar builds using the HX850. Thank you though.

    You really don't need anything over 500w unless your running multiple GPU's, multiple optical drives/high rpm hard drives or ALOT of high power fans. I've got an 8 core processor, 2 7200rpm sata drives, an HD7750, a dvd burner and 7 high speed fans and my 420w psu is more then enough.
