Description

Mainly use this rig for gaming, but I do a lot of research on it. I have turbo mode on for the cpu. I didn't want to do a crazy overclock cause my apartment stays pretty warm throughout the yr even with the ac on. sucks to live above the boiler. also only prob I had was a the h100i failed on me, but a quick rma fixed that. all in all everything runs very smooth and 5760x1080 is awesome.( this was my first triple monitor set up and finding a desk just to put the monitors on was a pain.) Ile get more pics up later .this was the first pic I took so plz excuse the wire mess

I'm liking this build. Nice part choices, although I would have gone with a 780 ti. Also, the CPU is overkill for gaming, but I guess it's all future proofing. +1 from me.

Finally, a good use for the 6 gig 7970. +1

I hope to see more photographs of the build. A few things I don't quite like, personally; if you were willing to pay over $100.00 on a keyboard I really would have gotten a mechanical one, you could actually get a nice mechanical keyboard with LED's and macro banks for that money. The PSU is a little 'iffy' to me. I personally don't really trust Thermaltake PSU's, no matter how high the certification is for it.

It's not a huge deal though, +1`

I agree with the thing about the keyboard. Mechanical would have been better considering this was built with gaming in mind.

Why do you not trust thermal take? There are some pretty good reviews on some of them. I think it's just the somewhat industrialized look that turns you off, which shouldn't be a deciding factor.

It is not just the aesthetics that turn me off and form my opinion at all. It is simply that I do not trust any other PSU besides Corsair, EVGA, OCZ, Rosewill, SeaSonic and XFX.

How are you liking that Vapor-X 7970? I have the 3GB version and haven't much trouble with it aside from the fans being a little bit loud.

Noise doesn't really bother me usually have headset on and when I don't there is always the tv on in the background as well as the kids playing :)

that's a pretty hefty for the price of a 7970, even considering the rise in prices on radeon cards, is there really any difference in this card and another 7970 besides 6GB of VRAM that warrants such a higher cost?

it was made for the use of eyefinity and being able to push out the high resolution. currently I am running 5760x1080. I know there is a guy on youtube who reviewed it using 3 1440p monitors (which is something like 7680x1440) and he was running max payne on ultra and still getting like 30 to 35 fps. so that was kinda my deciding factor.

versatables.com it was actually not the bad for the price and the desk is customizable for the height of where the table sits. also you can get a bunch of add on stuff to
