    It's not that they treat it like that, they just never realize it. Most people never even open a computer, let alone dust and clean it. Even if most people saw dust in their computer, I think they'd be too scared to clean it in fear of "messing something up."

    I'm using regular Eyefinity way via Crossfire 5850. As I know TripleHead2Go can't handle resolution more than 1680x1050 per screen and it's too expensive :shadedshu

    Yeah that shit is like $300. Well I've been wanting triple screens but the cost is too much for now. Maybe later after I get my new rig.

    You can get 3 cheap 19' screens with 1440x900 and 5770 for eyefinity. Once you'll try 3 screens you'll never want back to 1. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c79m9iCJh4g

    Well I was planning on doing a dual screen but maybe I'll do a triple screen. I've always wanted one.

    dual is very comfortable for usual work but that's not enough for games.

    I took it out onto a table outside of the shop. Got the air compressor out and blew out the big chunks. Then I took it all apart, wiping down and blowing out each component as I went. I made sure to wipe all of the cables and lines and such. Blew out and wiped down the inside of the case then reassembled. I was going to take the water hose to the case but the other side panel is immovable and there's some space between the motherboard tray and the side panel so I figured it was a bad idea.

    I also replaced their junk with AS5 and washed out the heatsink in the sink, using dawn on their stupidly thick paste which had all but dried up.

    This morning I spoke with the lady who owns it and she said they had never cleaned it out (obviously). She thought that cleaning the outside was good enough :rolleyes:

    Installing Win7 on it right now and it's working great. I'm glad it wasn't the drive after all :)

    Here is my current setup. Shes a little dusty. I've been prepping to move so time has been short.

    Mail Mans system is too clean. I think he deserves another infraction for proving he is good at cable management.

    Post has been reported!
