okay guys so i'm looking to game [bf3, skyrim] currently on one 720p tv looking to upgrade to 3 high res monitors in the future so want room to xfire.
at the moment using the stock case fan config with maybe minor o.c., will upgrade to the best possible fans [noise not a factor] in the future with major o.c. Don't know much about gpu o.c. but may look into it.
I'm running with the haf-x case although ambient temp can be consistently greater than 40 degrees c in summer. so pretty much i have most of my build sorted just unsure of PSU and fan config. I would like to stay with reputable brands for the psu and don't know much about case fans.
As said above, 850w PSU would be recommended for CF 6970's.
Recommended brands for PSU include: Corsair, XFX, SeaSonic, Antec.
A modular PSU design would also be recommended due to the large number of cables these higher wattage PSU's have.
Multi monitor gaming - 2 monitors generally isn't generally recommended because right in the middle of the screen is the black edging on the monitors. 1 or 3 is generally considered better to avoid this. Playing a shooter game for example the crosshair of the gun would be split with half on each screen making this quite awkward. With 3 monitors or 1 monitor, the crosshair would remain in the middle (centred). ~ if that makes sense ?
