  1. things i can think of.
    a third card will pretty much eliminate micro stutter. but your frame rate is probably so high right now that you dont notice any.

    i game with 3 27 inch monitors, when the game lets me. so i always recommend 3 monitors, or 5 if you have too much money.

  3. Brag thread zzzzz

    And your avatar is any different?

    Nice build. Very sleek!
    I would have invested in a larger SSD and just went with a single HD 6970. Everything else looks great

    The SSD is pretty much just for booting the OS (Windows 7) and not much else. But once they make the SSD Sata 3 ones more stable I might upgrade to something larger :)

  6. nice cabling for non modular.. if you just want it to look prettier you might consider getting a modular PSU and some custom sleeved cable extensions. Also consider recoloring the fans to match? :)
