  1. any thoughts between the 10k Velociraptor drives vs 7200's - Is there enough of a performance advantage to warrant the price?
  2. I'm a dope I am going with the i7 - the links above are for 775 coolers - any suggestions on cooling for the 1366?
  3. I haven't figured out what I am going to do about cooling - I've never done a water cooled system before - any suggestions? Or suggestions on fans, cpu cooler? I was looking at the thermaltake and the Zalman for the CPU Thermaltake SpinQ Performance Series cooler with ultra-lightweight aluminum and six heatpipes CL-P0466 CPU Cooler - Retail http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?...N82E16835106123 ZALMAN 9500A 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler - Retail http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?...N82E16835118223 ......can you say Velocity Yellow Im buying on Monday - so any other recommendations?
  4. FlightSim for sure - racing and others? If I can use the gtx295 using all three outs (DVI, VGA, HDMI) at the same time that might do the job - Or get 2nd video card
  5. awwwww - now I thought that was a challenge :)
  6. that is for sure - 3 individual monitors....at the same time Ok - now what if I want to game across all 3
  7. Done - thank you! Any idea on the 3 outputs of the 295?
  8. thanks guy for the input - keep it coming bosco - thanks on the memory - is there any difference in stability that you know of? Also I would love to know if all three outputs work at the same time as well. If so that solves a lot of issues. If I want to game across all three monitors what would be the best way? again - thanks guys!
