The latest ATI's feature supports triple LCDs (Eyefinity or something), we identified this as a great feature for our productivity (viewing multiple applications at any given time). Please suggest on the following components:
#1) LCD: 24" Monitor (Samsung or Dell or what?) - 30 Nos would be brought (added 10 more Nos; 5 PCs will have triple displays).
Please also suggest a LCD 24" Monitor with a Webcam (1 No, for myself).
#2 Best card: Sapphire Vapor-X Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 or Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5? (I've dumped 5870/5850, too expensive!).
Checked out, both models are available locally. Doesn't make any sense to import them from the US (weight). Just wondering, should I spend $60 more just for additional 1.5" and 0.7 Megapixel (for only 1 No, remaining 30 Nos I would go for 24" without Webcam model only)? Which one would you suggest?
The facility is centralized A/C, of course, I decided to go with Corsair 650WHX PSU and Thermalright 120 MUX. Am I doing correctly? Then, should I go with the Juniper XT card (why am asking is am really impressed with so many +ve reviews about this card)?
If you get a very huge monitor like that 25.5", then you might have trouble with the viewing angle...but it depends on comfortability...
And why do you need 650W PSU ? Will you be adding 2 HD 5770s ?
I got you, then I'll lock on 24" with webcam only. Please also clear this confusion, should I take testseek.com reports seriously before buying any product?
Honestly I don't even know how much is the potential of a single ATI 5770...think to me single card is more than enough Umm, should I scale it down to a 550W PSU like this one (locally PSU are expensive)?
^ This the 1st time am hearing about that website that you have linked...I would say do research on your part too rather than just going by their conclusions...
Ans as for the HD 5770, if you will be playing games(FPS, racing,etc) at high resolutions(for eg, that above LCD's resolution - 1080p), then you might want to add one more 5770 in crossfire...
Check this PSU...It can handle HD 5770 crossfire... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
I went for Core i7-860, Gigabyte P55A-UD4P and Sapphire Radeon 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB GDDR5 as my requirement is not that easy considering running multiple apps and simulations, driving 3 LCDs (Eyefinity support) etc.
I selected 24" ASUS VK246H with webcam (one machine) remaining 30 LCDs are non webcam. Thank you very much
