Is that an XFX Radeon HD 6800 of some variety in there i see in your case there? Quality card those are, I have 2x 2GB 6870s in my computer and they run amazing. Nice LEDs too, I've always wanted to do that but there's kinda no point considering that none of the light would come out of the case.
Also a little bit surprised that you don't have more than just the one monitor. When I upgraded to 2 monitors (and later 3) I got waaaaaay more productive with my work.
yep! XFX makes their cards to last- Not saying that EVGA and NVidia card makers don't though, cause their parts ARE good, they just need be upgraded more often. I Had an NVidia Tesla Co-processor at one point but within 2 years of buying it became too outdated to use the latest Cinema4D and Adobe Premiere software.
My computer chassis is a Clamshell Chassis so it can't really be opened from the side without taking up the whole area of legroom i have. It cools really well though, which in my situation i guess is more important than fancy lights XD
If you can, and if you do, consider buying a monitor of the same brand as your current monitor- Different Companies have different tinted monitors. I have an Asus to the right of my Benq monitor, and the Asus has a little bit of a yellow tint while the Benq has more of a blue tint.
It is just a fact that every alternate day their something new coming up in the market and a better one at a cheaper price. So, can't help it.
And a clamshell chassis? Hmm.. for a desktop pc? You mean your cabinet door opens like a "Door" and can't be open completely?
Regarding the monitor yeah, I know it is better to have a same model as my current one. But the problem is that the current one is quite old and I need bigger screen. So, I'll have to end up with 2 new monitors.
That's exactly it. Seems the more powerful it is the faster it becomes outdated XD
yeah, A clamshell chassis. Look up a Dell Precision 670, thats the case that I have. The people I bought it from refurbished it with a newer Tyan Motherboard that fit into the case. Has 2 16x PCI-E instead of just the one x16 and one x8 on the stock motherboard. Everything is the same on the rest of the motherboard though. No one makes SSI EEB cases for desktop, because motherboards of that size are commonly only used for Rackmount servers, and my current 8U server rack doesn't have enough room for a computer as well as my DVD interface, Tape Interface, and Switch.
heh, i did kinda assume that you would've known that. 24 inches is generally the size I prefer, I find that 27 inch is too big for my desk and anything below 19 inch is too small to work with. My Asus is a 22 inch, but it has a higher pixel density than most 22 inch monitors so it works well.
