You should overclock that CPU if you haven't already =D Those first gens go way higher than stock with sufficient cooling.

Indeed. I should've overclocked it years ago...does this look like a legit guide? http://forums.anandtech.com/showthread.php?t=2036249

I think so, don't follow it word by word though, every chip is different so yours may require higher or lower voltage for the same clocks. However the settings he lists look like a good base point. Also remember that those chips also have an insane power draw when you push higher vcore through them. Make sure that when you start overclocking, you have lots of time on your hands as it took me nearly two weeks to get a setting I was happy with on my CPU. Mine is not an Intel, but you get the idea. However your BIOS may be different than the one that is used in that guide because you have a different motherboard but the settings should resemble each other.

The monitors are about eye level for me...they weren't with what I was using before (textbooks).

If you look at other triple monitor mounts priced around $100, they're all pretty much the same...this is the one I have: http://www.amazon.com/Deluxe-Monitor-Standing-Supports-002-0020/dp/B006JG9RQ2 http://www.tykesupply.com/Triple_Monitor_Stands-Triple_Monitor_Stand_Free_Standing_Curved_Arm.html
