    You must not handle things well. :P My friend who got a Sager (RL friend) has it still going and he does it for some real heavy-duty work. He makes 3D models and renders them and such. All with that little laptop!

    Build quality differs. Just because one holds up, doesn't mean another will. And the opposite. Which is why "You must man-handle your Razer/MSI/Sennheiser's (or whatever) because mine works flawlessly".
    Not everything will break because it has a chance to.

    And I expect shipping to Greenland plays a part-

    That's a fair point tetris, my only reasoning behind it is because my friend got one of the cheaper ones and as I recall, the one Inux got wasn't so cheap. :P But, you make a good point, especially about the shipping, thus I'll give Inux the benefit of the doubt and rescind my point.

    Mind if I ask how?

    I thought they each needed a dual link DVI to run at 1440p and don't support adaptors to Displayport.

    Are both of the DVI ports on one one of the cards dual link or something?

    Overclocking through the nVidia control panel.

    Not officially within the DVI guidelines.

    I think he was more wondering about how is Inux hooking up 3x1440p monitors when those monitors say they don't support anything other than DVI-DL and no DP to DVI adapters etc.

    I ordered the ones with DP, DVI & HDMI.

    As for your friend, I guess he isn't moving it around a lot. :P

    Thanks Tetris, happy new year and all that

    I was not aware QNIX made those, thanks, that info might come in handy in the future.

    You guys have such flimsy looking chairs. ._.

    This is my chair.

    Guys, brace yourselves. I'm going to show you my PovertyGaming XTREME build. It's weak, looks bad and is bad in general. Those of you who maintain a sick looking PC and are faint of heart, do NOT look.





    CPU: Intel Core2Quad Q8200 2,33 -> 2.592 GHz BOX cooling
    RAM: 1x4G 1.33 ghz CL-7
    GPU: EVGA GTX460 1GB OC'd to perform better than a stock 470
    MB: ASUS P5G41T-M S LGA775
    PSU: OCZ ModXstream 700W Modular
    HDD: Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5"
    Fans: What fans? There are none!
    Case: I have no idea, really.
    ... and a 23" Hhilips 236VL screen.

    A new setup coming Soon™ - not so poverty anymore, will post it as soon as it's built, will have some "proper" cooling, better cable management and some blue led fans as well :3

    Decided to go with a different case, instead of the I-BOX Virgo 914 with 2 blue led fans and a window I've ordered a SilentiumPC Brutus M23 Pure Black. Won't be as flashy, but it looks good nonetheless. Assuming everything goes as expected, I'll have my new cooler, mobo, cpu & case on 6th of January. Can't wait for the fps boost :3

    The new Rig

    I've been running with a heavily modified Dell XPS 8300 for the last 2+ years. It was time to get some new-ish tech. For xmas, family asked me for a wish list. Having been using Intel for the last 8 years, I decided to give AMD a shot, and see what I could do on a small-ish budget. Total spent is around $400 for case, CPU, MoBo, and H60 cooler.

    Total parts list inc...

    AMD A10-6800K (IGP Disabled, Turbo disabled)
    Gigabyte F2A88X-D3H Mobo
    16Gig Corsair Vengeance Blue 1600Mhz Dual Channel DDR3
    Intel 520 Series "Cherryville" 120Gig SSD (Main OS Drive)
    Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200 64Mb Cache (Storage / Backup)
    NVidia GTX 560Ti 1Gig, 256bit Vid card
    Corsair "GS600" 600w PSU *First Gen, Blue LED fan on push button switch*
    Fractal Designs "Define R4 Silent" Case in Black Pearl finish
    Corsair H60 AIO Cooler
    2x Xigmatech 120mm Purple LED Crystal Series fans *One intake, bottom of case, one exhaust, top*
    2x Fractal Designs 140mm Fans *Stockers, front mounted, Intake, on the built in 3 speed fan controller*
    --
    Here are specs during stress testing. I'm concerned about the CPU temps, as the "Easy Tune" software reports way lower temps. Conflicting numbers bother me. The stock settings fore everything sent this beast to 83c(!!!) thus the under clocking.


    Side shot with case closed up.


    My work space. Screens are a Dell 23" main, and an Acer 20" to the left.
