Description

I use this computer for every day functioning but I wanted the multiple monitors for work. I can compare multiple data sets and keep multiple windows open without having to alt tab through things. Plus I can work on a couple and keep distractions going on others.

The monitor stand did not allow me to position the monitors how I wanted them so I have had to tap and die new holes. I wanted to get the monitors as low to the desk and as close together as possible. Still need to continue adding holes but it takes time and I wanted this working.

I had to get active display port to dvi converters. The salesman at microcenter originally sold me passives.

The upgrade from 1 monitor to 2 was life changing. I can only imagine how the upgrade from 2 to 6 is going for you.

I'm quite jealous.

Haha lol! @OP great build +1!

considering you have six monitors, that really isn't an unreasonable pricetag. I'd suggest tidying up the cables a bit to help airflow and avoid hate.

Thank you for the comments about cable management. The mess of cords that you see is mostly the 4 power cords to the 2 video cards. I have 2 feet of cord to go 6 inches. That spot of the case is a pretty big dead area so I did not see much of a problem with leaving the cords there. The pictures make it look a lot worse then it really is.

Great price tag, good build, 6 monitors (love it)! +2 Cable management needs some work as previously stated. -1 Total +1

Even though 6 monitors is cool I think I would have just done 2 and gotten better ones with the extra money.
