    Build Assistance for Gaming Rig

    Thanks for the feedback all. The 11400F is an interesting option, but it looks like that will limit overclocking. Was looking to overclock a bit and thats why I was going with the K series CPU. Didnt realize it was that close to launch rocket lake. My big question is how available will...

    Big Monitor or tri?

    I would say it really depends. If you are looking at a big screen (like the 42" you listed below), but it only displays 1920 x 1080 I would say go with eyefinity triple setup since 3 x 23" screens will have much higher resolution. But if you go for a quality 30" monitor, then I would rather...

    No signal from computer to my monitor???

    psycholicon check your connections from your power supply to the motherboard and graphic card. Make sure none of the connections are loose. Also you may want to check to make sure nothing is overheating if you can. I had the same problem last year and the issue with mine was my PSU...

    ASUS Republic of Gamers Sizzles at CeBIT

    Looks good, but I gotta say that there have been a few 27" 120hz monitors announced, but none launched so far. We need them to come out so they can get cheaper quicker for the FPS games. Edit: Forgot to mention that bruins is back :)

    Spending 200 dollars for a Video card

    Did you wind up getting anything yet? Looks like prices are going to continue to go down hopefully esp. once the really high end cards come out. Gotta love competition.

    Spending 200 dollars for a Video card

    That is right I forgot about the scaling. The 6000 series has better scaling for Crossfire than the 5000 series. However, you can easily get a 6870 for $200 or less which will be a nice difference from a 6850.

    Spending 200 dollars for a Video card

    I have been looking for a video card at the same price as well but I have a bit to wait for Sandy Bridge to come back out. Right now you can do much better than a 6850 for $200. At the very least look at newegg or tigerdirect and they have 6870s going for $200 and less. Also, today at newegg...

    Gaming Monitor Suggestions

    Thanks but 26" is too big. Looking to get 2 other of the same 24" monitor soon for eyefinity. In technology there is no such thing as future proofing since it changes so often. I am not a fan of 3d at all and not looking to play anything in 3d even if it was available. Just looking for a...

    Gaming Monitor Suggestions

    Hey all, I am looking for a new gaming monitor at 23" or 24". I was looking to spend from 150 - 250 for this new monitor. I am really looking for the best bang for the buck, but a good monitor (no cheapo ones). I have been looking at either Asus or Samsung monitors lately. Thanks guys.

    Case Choice Assistance (Mid Tower)

    Thanks guys for the input. Looks like I am replacing the fans which is what I was kind of expecting. DF 30 it is (hot swap is a pretty cool feature).

    Sandy Bridge Build Options

    I believe it. I have a Biostar on my x2 3600+ and it does OC very nicely. Good to see they have a good board I will need to check that one out. Out of curiosity how is the 2500K running?
