    I was playing with hooking up an old CRT monitor of mine as a 3rd display just then, I turned it over on its side and the wallpaper went from being green to being blue :eek: I swear I've seen pictures of CRT's on their sides before. Maybe mine is using some older/cheaper tech?

    Also, I had no idea the 5850 could only do 2 non-display port displays. I was trying to do 2x DVI + 1x HDMI and it wouldn't let me. If you want to do that you've got to have a 5870 :( So I threw in my old trusty 2400 pro to handle the 3rd one. The 2400 has been incredibly durable. I've dropped it multiple times, ripped out the heatpipe, ran the heatsink under water, and touched it in about every place and it still works fine :cool:

    Well I took a better pic of the inside of my Sharkoon, took a pic of the outside without the flash so it didnt look artificially shiny (came out a little grainy instead :mad:). The HDD activity and Power LEDs were super bright, so they got unplugged. Will paint the expansion covers black this week:

    Thanks :) I do not believe they are available in the US yet- as a matter of fact I don't think there are any Sharkoon cases available in the US at the moment (hope that isn't due to lead :laugh:). This was bought from Sneeky.

    Meh, given the fact that I've games less than 1 hour on an 11-day LAN party I'm seriously considering a laptop setup now. And I hate laptops, so theres tons of research to be done.

    a 5650 as a minimum

    and the rest is up to you

    but i can play mw1+2 , l4d1+2, blur, killing floor, maxxed in normal HD, and without any/too much eyecandy in full hd

    Got to add to the Radiator Showdown between the PA120.2 vs PA120.4, for the dedicated gpu's.

    Overclocked and overvolted the Fermi's didn't break 56ºC.

    Closed blinds and curtains. got the room fairly dark. I will get a better one tonight.
    It is the thermal chamber that comes with the Spedo Advance case. Works out good as it supports the weight of that IFX-14. I just need to find a way to support that 5970 now.

    I told you lol. It is the thermal chamber that comes with the Spedo Advance Case. It is in the perfect spot to take some of the weight of my IFX-14 cooler. I am trying to figure out to make something up that will support the 5970 I dont like the way it sits and all of that weight cant be good for the board. But I did just recently enter a competition to win a H50 cooler.... That would be better nice and small.
