Realize the kind of video card you would need to play a game at that resolution and reasonable framerate...

24 monitors is just like one with FSAA 24x, not much.
...

:huh:

FSAA 8x + aniso 6x requires more power. ;)

:lol: my junker...took with a junky digital camera

the camera is 7 years old and captures a 4500RPM CPU fan...i have no clue how..

i cut and bound the cables myself, and the case fan is where a whole fan scoop used to be....looks better to me, the guard is so no stray cables get sucked in and chopped up, because that fan blows all the hot air out.

yea...my computers in school don't exactly look so hot...but i'll get pics of those at a later date..yea, i have 2 computers in school. one is just being built, the other is for work, until i graduate, then it comes home.

i don't have room to make it any neater, honestly...the computer is barely over a foot tall and wide. i just made it so that there are no wide ribbon cables to trap heat or prevent air from entering the front, because it does go in, and if you put your hand on the front you can feel it...of course theres much work to be done to make it better, but its 5 years old, its not going to last long enough :}

It's a Core 2 Duo chip - I WISH it was 3+ Ghz :)

I haven't checked the system temp since the upgrade last week - still need to tidy everything up. CPU temp is 38-40C. Will update as soon as I've tidied it up

my cable management is purely makeshift. i just wanted to mod it up a little before it dies, because i might have just given it a few more years. not to mention how the thing is built..the power cables coming out of the PSU are to the left looking at it through the 5.25" bays, so i can't really mod it up to change that and get them completely out of the way.

im still waiting on a powerpack for the dual Xeon motherboard, so i have no computer to fall back on, im stuck with what i have for the next month or two...i either find a new PSU or i find one thats smaller and less power consuming than the 600W one. either way, i need it to run the comp. its got a case loosely fit together, i just haven't put on L-Brackes yet because i don't know how big the PSU will end up being. i found one on Ebay that is a last resort, so if all else fails thats what i've got to get. im hoping that the computer my friend is about to dump has the right stuff for it....oh well...i've got a trip planned to go to a local school that just takes whole computers and dumps them, so if i can pull out some goods i will. that includes as much RAM as i can, processors + fans/heat syncs and hard drives...and one power pack that suites my needs.

that wireless USB, is that an internal cable or part of the PCI card, because i've never seen that before, but thats a sweet lookin rig :thumbup

Its a Bluetooth adapter (for my fone software).

Its a USB PCI card. It has 2 external ports and 1 internal, so I hide the bluetooth dongle away inside :D

Cheers, I do like to look after my rig :P (it gets air dusted every so often as well, lol)

thats awesome :thumbup

about the best i can do is have a PCI ATA/66 card in my comp and then have ODDs and the masters and HDD's as the slaves...it looks interesting because i usually just let it hang out onto my desk :lol:

but im thinking of playing musical computers, taking this thing upstairs with the sound card, and having the 1.4GHz down here with no sound...we'll see, i think i still need sound all over, but i want the faster computer down here..its an interesting situation for one who has little money to spend.

This is a really old computer, built around 1999. It features 10 IDE drives, which was a rare for that time. It runs Linux. I still have the box, but since it has two 120mm fans in it (among other fans), it is very loud when running. Four of the drives are 45 Gig drives in a RAID-10 on a 3ware ATA-66 card. There is still room for a CD-ROM and floppy, too.

:lol: wheres the mobo in that mess? jk

what type of mobo is that? i have one from 1999 that could have that many SCSI drives, but it'll only have IDE, for the speed really. i could get a 250GB SATA drive, but i have no SATA plugs on any of my computers, making it somewhat useless. although my Super S2DGU has two UW SCSI inputs and one UltraSCSI inputs along with 2 IDE and a floppy...it is a server really, but i don't have a PSU for it. [bummed by that]

i should be getting one soon.
