    I'm guessing its the raw Compute values they have vs NVidia. AMD / ATI has always held a solid spot in the "Professional" bracket, with the Fire Pro and such, so, would make sense, I 'spose.

    It's more about power consumption, or so I heard.

    No it is not, Nvidia cards use less power but CUDA is not as good for SHA256 or Scrypt hashing.

    Well I read a bunch of forum posts where they were calculating profit from power usage perspective, not about calculations performance.

    I tried a few other configurations before I settled on this one, including setting up the two 1440x900 monitors vertically at either side of the main one but it wasn't really practical with this desk (nowhere to put the 1600x900, I could try it above the main one but that seems too high) and eyefinity seems a little broken atm, the one that is at the top right now kept disconnecting and reconnecting every few seconds as soon as I activated it, until I reverted back to extended desktop (I hope it is just the mantle beta drivers causing it).

    So far this seems to be the most practical configuration with this desk (though I still might try something else) and the monitors are so mismatched due to these being just what I had to hand, before I got the 27" I was using the three others for eyefinity. Though the temptation is there to at some point get two more monitors the same as the main one (the version with DisplayPort though).

    I'd personally never want to use TN panels along with IPS... the difference is too obvious. I'm actually pretty happy being back on single monitor... the ASUS MX239H is a gorgeous IPS monitor. Do you really truly need 4 monitors? What do you use them all for?

    Honestly no I don't need 4, the way I see it I need 2 as personally I really don't like the idea of going back to a single monitor (I can understand why some people might prefer it, but it is not for me). Monitors 3 and 4 are basically just for fun and I like having them, but it would be no big loss going back to 2 or 3.

    What I typically use the for is Gaming (and the occasional movie) on the main one, YouTube and TV shows on the left one, Web browser on top right and bottom right is kind of miscellaneous (chat windows/teamspeak/steam/battle.net client/second browser sometimes/and a couple of others as needed). There is no reason I couldn't condense that down to 2 monitors if I wanted to but as I said I just like having more than that.

    As for the mixed panel types, while the PLS monitor is clearly superior and the difference is obvious, I don't have a problem with keeping the TN panels next to it as long as they positioned properly, particularly for the top right one as that one looks really bad if the viewing angle is off.

    Aye. Or the 3 hour long Polaris podcast. But only being once a week makes it pretty easy to watch and I can always just watch the YouTube of it, able to pause it and such. With all of my Skyriming lately, I'd much prefer focusing on one or the other and not trying to pay attention to both at the same time.

    Oh right, in other news my C70 and RM1000 arrived. I'd take pictures, but I only got to really get them out of the box and all after the time was past 5 PM, so there was no way I had light to take pictures of it.

    But do expect some tomorrow. No other bits in there yet though, since the "server" that I have that I'm taking parts from was locked away in a room where the owner was away at the time of trying to fetch it...

    You're starting to make me think Norway doesn't use artificial lights... at all. Don't you have lamps in your house?

    Though, I do realize natural light is far nicer.

    Natural light is not only much nicer, it's orders of magnitude easier to work with. No mixed light colors, no awkward setup, you just need a nearby window.

    I think we've got very different perspective of what's acceptable lighting though.
