Ok so Like the day I got married...Im nervous. I am buying my 3 GTX 480's that I have wanted for EVER in about an hour unless anyone has something to say to save me from a mistake. I want to play in 3D on 3 monitors and I want to make sure this is the right decision. Any last arguments before I hit the buy button on newegg? lol or forever hold your piece :D

we are talking about a lot of money here, and if this expensive buy is within your budget, then by all means!

I personallly played 3D on 3 monitors all supported by 3 x 480 GTX's and the experience was amazing!!

remember, the world is coming to an end on the 21 Dec 2012, live with no regrets and live your life to the extreme!!

enjoy!! (was just joking about the world coming to an end thing there!! but you know what i mean!!!)

Just my thought

u really believe in that BS news created to promote 2012 movie.



are you a religious man?

http://www.2012endofdays.org/more/Bible-Prophecy.php

Many people are discussing 2012 as the end of the world due to interpretations of predictions contained in the Mayan calendar. The Mayan civilization was extremely advanced in mathematics, engineering and astronomy. They also had an incredible understanding of time and space. Various calendars were in use to track time in linear progressions within cycles. The “Great Cycle” of the “Long Count” calendar equates to 5,125.36 years. The current Great Cycle is due to be completed on the winter solstice of 2012, December 21. So, it has been interpreted that on this day, the Great Cycle ends, time ends, so the Earth must end as well. However, there are different opinions on what this end date really means.

As mentioned, some believe cataclysmic events will take place in December 2012 with the ultimate destruction occurring on December 21, 2012. Others believe that the world will not end, but instead humanity will enter a new age, marked by significant changes physically and mentally.

Hopefully destruction will not occur and it will be just another day. Maybe there will be some cosmic transformation. Anything is possible and it makes for an interesting discussion none-the-less.

this is way off the OP, but just for argument sake!!

ha ha true, was reading about that the other day, if they can predict the future, why couldn't they predict the onslaught in the middle 16th century!!

its all speculation, and luckily at Tom's we work on facts and testings!! not predictions!! :) 

anywho....
