  1. The asthetics of the UD7 are so pleasing you could hang it on the wall and build a shrine around it.
  2. The last two boards i had were Gigabyte and i had no problems with them. The UD7 has all the slots i need and a backup bios so i can reset the bios if i make a mess of it. It is also really really nice looking. Im not really sure that the XT is worth the extra cash - the system is a little faster for it but im not sure the price is justified. These two items were the first available in stock that i could find with the new interface. There are plenty of outlets for these products but i can imagine that they would be in short supply. I dont think the Asus board was available when i bought mine - i have just been looking at it. It would have been tough to choose between the two.
  3. Thanks for this advice Shallowbay - I ditched the psu and went with a corsair HX850 in the end, i also sold the 4890's on ebay and splashed out on a single 5970 oc instead. The system is now running. When i have built my desk i will be able to set it all up and post some pics. I went with a gigabye ud7 board and a 2tb sg xt 6gbs hdd too - thought i may as well go all the way. The system still needs some tweaking tho as the fans dont plug into the contoller i bought - i will probably sort this out when i get my ssd later in the year.

    which monitor

    If i dont like the three monitor set up i can still use just one of the monitors. 23" at 2048 x 1152 is a lot of resolution for the money. A 30" 2560x1600 monitor would have cost 6x what i paid for one of these. If i dont like the set up my two sons will end up with an extra present each. Its a win win situation Thanks for your thoughts

    which monitor

    yeah. this is the same monitor recommended earlier. Does it matter that it is 16:9? Also it hasnt got DIsplayport - how easy is it to set these up. This monitor is a bit dearer over here but is still really cheap for such a high resolution. I could buy a couple and add to them later if i wanted more. i am thinking that it is now a choice between this option (if its easy to set up) or one really nice 30" high res one. Thanks all for the suggestions

    I am still reading stuff and learning as im posting, 16:10 would be better right? would Eyefinity still work with this format? 2048 x 1152 resolution and low response time looks very good for the price - no uk sellers on ebay cheapest here is pixmania

    which monitor

    I have planned the system entirely for gaming, the card is a 5970 The monitor i am using at the moment is an old analogue screen connected to a really crappy old pc - i will not be using this! I have all the bits i need to build the system barring the blu ray drive and the graphics card which are paid for and should be arriving in the post in the next few days
