    I play on one monitor, i HATE multi monitor setups, until the day they bring out screens with NO edges whatsoever (not even a 1mm edge) I prefer having my one, nice big screen. Its 60Hz and 1080p I don't need to overclock a 7970. I'm not gonna upgrade the monitor to get higher resolutions either, I struggle reading some text at 1080 :/

    WHERE DO YOU PEOPLE GET THIS MUCH MONEY!? My computer now is worse than the computers that were posted two years ago at the start of the thread.

    I have a 4 year old Dell Inspiron 530 with two extra GB of RAM (4 total) and a Radeon 6670. Epic Core 2 quad 2.4gHz, 32-bit windows 7 and 1TB HDD.

    I get a smooth 25FPS in SC2 under medium settings and light load with nothing else running (I can't even have Chrome open in the background). I will include my paypal so that the rich people in this forum can donate to my non-poor rig

    CPU: I5-3570k
    Mobo: Asrock Z77 Extreme4
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16gb (2 x 8gb)1600 Mhz CL9 (Just ordered these, arriving here thurs/fri)
    HDD: 1tb, not sure of the specs...stole it from my previous computer that was prebuilt
    SSD: 120gb OCZ Vertex 3
    GPU: Radeon HD 6780
    PSU: 575W DiabloTek
    Case: Corsair Carbide Series 300R

    Possible future plans involve replacing the CPU cooler with a Corsair H60 or H80, upgrading to a nicer 24" monitor, and purchasing an Asus Xonar D1 or DX sound card.

    I bust my ass at work and so does my wife to be able to afford some of the luxories in life. We don't blow our money on alcohol or useless stuff that we have no use for.

    Erm, you should really consider a test bench if you're not wanting to put them in a case, the stress on those PCIe slots is not good for them... It's amazing they still work now...

    Consider:

    or something similar!

    With the nature of the setups I'd probably sooner think about the 300R tbf, Phobya's testbench or LD Cooling's test bench.

    My media server died last night................... , So I went out and bought this crap:


    The PSU is for my tower, and I took my old Thermaltake 430w and stuck it in the server.


    I dont even turn my server off anymore, I configured RDP for multiple concurrent connections, so I just remote in when I need to do any maintenance. Its a lot better then trying to find a keyboard and mouse to hook up at 3am. :P

    Very little has changed since the pictures where taken in the summer of .12

    I've changed the keyboard for a Logitech G710+ and the mouse is now a G700 instead of the mamba

    Chasis:
    corsair graphite 600t white edition

    Motherboard:
    ASUS Maximus IV GENE-Z/GEN3, Socket-1155

    Memory:
    Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz 16GB CL8 <- Will be changed soon as it is faulting

    CPU:
    Intel Core i5-2500K Processor

    Storage:
    Samsung SSD 830 Series 256GB 2.5"
    2tb WD thingy

    GPU:
    Nvidia GTX670

    PSU:
    Corsair AX 850W PSU

    Soundcard:
    Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD

    Monitors:
    2xSamsung 27" LED Syncmaster S27A350H <- Gonna get 1 maybe two 3d monitors instead :P

    Keyboard:*
    Razer Anansi <- Changed for the Logitech 710+


    Mice:*
    Razer Mamba 2012
    Logitech G700

    Headphones:*

    Under the middle of the monitors is the Xbox 360 connected to the speakers on each side of the monitors far sides, I'm not sure what their brand is since I've forgotten, but to be that small and cheap, they have a really high oomf for the money !



    Can't post pictures yet :P

    And there we go. I'm now on my "classic" rig with new case. Bridged internet connection via laptop though... :P

    Fortress 03 Titan
    OCZ ZT 750w
    i5 2500k w/ H80
    Asus Z68 Maximus Gene-Z
    Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB), 1600MHz 1.5v
    Gainward GTX 560ti
    Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB

    Using
    Dell U2312HM*
    Steelseries 6Gv2 Black
    Steelseries Sensei Raw
    as peripherals

    * Technically, monitor belongs to my brother. However, I got a 30" IPS 2560x1600 monitor today... And decided he can borrow it, since the 560ti won't be able to drive that resolution!

    Hopefully I'll get a good chance to take pictures of everything tomorrow. It looks pretty darn good, although cable management isn't what I'd consider ideal. Too long cables on powersupply mixed with a tiny, tiny case...

    What video card setup do you plan on running with that setup. Kinda weird that you have a 750w for a 560ti or are you planning on getting another 560ti.

    560 SLI at this point would be pretty silly, I suspect either a 680/7970 Ghz or waiting for next gen...

    No plans to add another videocard. 750w powersupply just sort of happened because OCZ ZT ones are stupid cheap. I'd replace the videocard outright if I had any reason to expect delivery to arrive before I travel away back to college Sunday. So nothing will be happening until I get back, I think.
