Hey guys, i am building a multiseat lan party pc for about $3750 and i was wondering if this is good.

just asking if i have chosen good parts for this build and good accessories like the monitor, keyboard etc... basically just a verification thing. I know $3750 sounds alot, but thats everything. (Including postage so it may not be $3750 on the wishlist itself (its $3556))

the 2 500gb hdds are for documents and video recordings for each person and the 2 1tb hdds are for media likes games and movies etc... for each user. and if you have any knowledge on multiseat, can both users run a game on the same files? E.G i have bf3 at:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 3

can both users run off that or do i need to make 2 versions of it E.G

User 1: C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 3
User 2: C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games 2\Battlefield 3


User 1: C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 3
User 2: D:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 3

something like that.

Thanks and any help / feedback would be appreciated!

Note: I am using softxpand for multiseat gaming and 1 670 for each user. I hope the 3770k is enough for both users at the same time recording bf3 at max 1080p
at atleast 45fps

The key to success in Multi-Seat gaming is actually the video-cards:
You can share one video-card by two users (one monitor each) - this is more cost effective but some games may take over the entire GPU resources while playing full-screen.
Therefore the better solution is add a dedicated video-card per each user, so there is no "starvation" of GPU resources. This will assure the best FPS rates for intensive gaming sessions.
Good luck !
