    Re: SLI 690s?

    Thanks guys, I think for the time being I'll just stick to a single 690. If only Newegg would actually get some more in stock.

    Re: SLI 690s?

    The triple monitor thing definitely is something I'd like to explore. My 5850 simply doesn't have the ability to push anything too reasonable at 5760x1080. Currently, it's only been fun as a...

    Re: SLI 690s?

    Ahh!

    I just wanna build a whole new rig, and actually do something fancy. It's time to treat myself.

    So, I guess the question is, what kind of monitor setup should I switch to? A single...

    SLI 690s?

    I had some questions about a new build I'm considering, but hadn't gotten much in terms of input. I had some questions about the video situation, and figured you guys could give me some advice.

    Re: Considerations on new build

    Nothing?

    Maybe I can be more specific (although this specific question may be better suited to the video card forum)

    Since it could be a couple more months before the 7990 debuts, and I'm...

    Considerations on new build

    I've never built a truly "bleeding edge" machine, but I think I might whenever the 7990s finally come out (or perhaps not if someone can lend some advice?)

    I currently have an i7 sandy bridge,...

    Re: 590/6990 or something new coming?

    Well, I was able to get something up and working, so now I wait.

    From all the reading, it seems that the new 7000 series will be available around January 9th, but so far there's no word when the...

    Well, now I've a decision to make much sooner than later.

    My current 5850 has been acting up and it may have flaked out for the last time tonight.

    I had convinced myself to wait until the next...

    Waiting sounds like a plan. I've never had the latest and greatest, so maybe I can do that with the next fancy video card.

    But, typically, won't a single next gen of cards be better than SLI/CFX of the previous gen?

    Currently, I'm on the following:

    i7-2600K @ 3.4
    16GB Corsair Vengenace
    XFX 5850
    3x 23" monitors

    I typically only play a game at 1920x1080 as most (all?) games I've played haven't shown any...

    590/6990 or something new coming?

    I recently built a new computer, but carried over my XFX 5850 thinking I wouldn't do that much gaming.

    I was wrong!

    So, I've been looking at replacing it with either a 590/6990; however, I...

    I've never had one before because I fear that despite what everyone says that there is still some hidden fee. Everyone assures...

    Agreed, but what is the relationship between credit score and credit history?

    I have great credit.
    I have practically non-existent credit history.

    Re: One, Two, or Three monitors

    Personally, I would say go the multiple monitor route instead of 1 big monitor. Before I went to one big 28" monitor, I was using dual 19" monitors. At the time, I really thought I'd prefer it, and...

    Yeah, I'm generally concerned as it relates to my ability to be approved for a home loan. I assume there's a huge difference in being approved for 5-10k as opposed to 200k despite how good your...

    A question about credit.

    I'm 27. I've never had a credit card, and I've only ever purchased one item on credit, and that was a TV last year. All I've ever made payments on are my car, medical bills and student loans.

    I do play a few games every now and then, but they're not my main concern. I've never been too big on the correctness of the color, and I'm not going to spend $600+ for the Dell UltraSharp series of...

    No one has any recommendations? Surely someone is using a triple monitor setup?

    So far, I've been considering 3 of the following:

    LG E2350V-SN

    Samsung BX2331

    They're both 23" LED backlit monitors.

    In all my reading this weekend, it seems VESA-mountable monitors might...

    Recommendations for multi-monitor setup

    I have an ATI 5850, and I'd really like to take advantage of its triple-monitor support. The card has a DVI, HDMI and a DisplayPort, but I intended on also getting a DisplayPort-to-HDMI converter.
