I currently have W7 installed on one of my 128GB Samsung SSD's and my second SSD is just a backup/game storage drive. I would like to set them both up in a RAID 0 configuration with a fresh W7 install. Is this possible to do? What is the best way to go about it? (ASRock Z77 Extreme4 motherboard)

I'm anticipating the launch of the Ivy Bridge Extreme chips later in the year. Probably going with the entry level 4820K unless the 4930K is <$500, which I doubt. I'm probably just going to be changing the CPU, motherboard and RAM.My questions are:
Will the IB-E chips be using the same X79 platform that the SB-E chips is using or will there be an X89 chipset launching with it?
Should I sell my GTX680 and upgrade to a GTX780 or add a second GTX680 for an SLI configuration? I personally prefer a single GPU solution.

Back in April when I built my rig I bought two sticks of the Samsung 4GB DDR3-1600 (MV-3V4G3/US) and I knew then that I would be slapping myself for not buying 4 sticks. I haven't seen them in stock since then. Is there something I'm missing about this memory? Is it discontinued? Has it been replaced with a new kit? I really want to buy 2 or 4 more sticks, but they won't let me! What's the dealio?

I'm looking into building either a standalone media server and a standalone HTPC for the living room, or a combo of the two in one box. How many of you have a dedicated media server and what does it consist of, hardware and software wise. Any pointers before I start piecing one together? I would like to atleast start off with 4x3TB drives in some sort of RAID configuration. Is unRAID a stable, worth while alternative? Any advice to get me going here would be appreciated.
Looking so far at an Intel based platform, using onboard HDMI. Probably Z77 chipset and 8GB RAM. The rest is entirely up in the air, especially the case. Just want a simple, black in/out case with ~12 bays.

Simple question, couldn't find a definitive answer anywhere. I have two 32" Samsung TV monitors and one 65" Samsung 3D LED TV. As it stands right now my ASRock Z77 Extreme4 has an HDMI out, my EVGA GTX680 has one HDMI out and two DVI outs. I have the GTX680's HDMI going to my primary 32", the GTX680's DVI converted to HDMI going to my secondary 32", and the motherboard's HDMI going to the 65".
My question is, if I want to play a game on the 65" using the motherboard's HDMI am I hindering my FPS? Does that motherboard HDMI completely ignore the GTX680 or does the GTX680 still process the video signal and pass it back to the motherboard's HDMI?
My display priority in terms of which I play games on most would be; primary 32" most frequently, 65" once in a while, secondary 32" never. So the secondary 32" has the lowest priority. I get video AND audio out of all three ports, surprisingly enough the DVI-to-HDMI even passes through audio which I didn't know was possible.
Is it possible to have audio coming from both 32" at the same time, or will Windows 7 only allow one audio output at a time?
