Brand New Triple Monitor Build [WITH PICS!]
« on: August 15, 2012, 08:50:05 PM »
Ok guys I just finished a brand new triple monitor build. The specs  and pics are below. I built this for work and play. I purchased all the components via Newegg.com (got a free ShopRunner account via LifeHacker promotion so I get free 2 day shipping  ;D) and MicroCenter. I'm thing about upgrading my RAM to 16GB later but didn't have enough money in my budget for that right now. Everything works great so far except for my ASUS Xonar Essence XST sound card, I made a separate thread for that issue with the link below. It took me 1 day and half to assemble the entire thing while listening to Some Hans Zimmer and Lupe Fiasco 8). Let me know what you guys think! I will be grateful for any input/feedback:

Statement of the day.  The IT person asked. What kind of computer do you have and the customer replied a white one why?

I fixed the sound card issue, so everything works perfectly now. Thanks hartbeatmr! It did make a dent in my wallet but I have been saving up for it and I can say that with full confidence that it was worth every penny. Now here are some benchmarking tests:
