But 30" screens are far from cheap but much better than some cheap monitor Nvidia Surround setup. It's upto you in terms of display resolutions though.
Agreed.

Though I have a feeling that if he can readily buy a $1000 CPU, a 30" monitor is not too far out of grasp either.

lol true, but my god it works out a lot in total. I would have suggested Nvidia Surround but quite frankly most people are using cheap displays to pull it off (which i can't stand).

If i was to do it properly it would work out much more than a single 30" display. I had my eye on 3x 27" Samsung LS27A750DS 120Hz models. But at $798 a screen, the Nvidia Surround would cost a small fortune. Not to mention the h/w to drive it.

I had to look up that Samsung display, and wow is that thing thin all around! This is my biggest gripe about Surround in general, that the bezels and gaps really just get in the way and pull you away from the immersive experience. Although I'm spoiled by VA and IPS displays, I could be persuaded to adopt a TN panel for 120Hz gaming on something like this - if only it was cheaper though.

Yeah im aware that the 2600k would be a good idea, but i JUST got my water cooling setup complete and it was a pain in the a** with the setup and mess and remounting and refilling water and getting all the air out and everything.. I just want to unscrew the cpu block and slap a new cpu in there.. I dont want to have to go through skinning my fingers with fittings and sweating my balls off all over again for 3 days to overhaul. I want to upgrade the cpu and leave my pc alone for 2 years...

question - why the antec 902? with your setup, especially with the dual rads, a corsair 800D or a raven rv02 would have been better choices..
i'm pretty sure you're the only guy in the world who's mounted 2 590s on an antec 902

EDIT: don't take me the wrong way - it's an awesome feat, i just would've gone all-out on the case too if i had the money to spend on 2 590's

I understand. When I bought my pc parts like 1.5 years ago, i didnt plan on watercooling or multiple video cards..

I was just building a i7 920 build with an air cooler and a HD5970 in a antec 902 case... Things got a little out of hand and I decided to go all out.. I figured the 902 had such good airflow and I liked having all the power in a smallER case.. so I just got it to work without having to buy a new case ...

Yeah the video cards were a bit** to fit in the case.. I have NO hard drive cages.. I just made a custom mount in my case for the HDD's

I said the exact same thing too after my watercooling setup was finally completed. It took me the better part of 3-4 days straight and my fingers were so raw and blistered from turning all of my Bitspower compression fittings, that I swore up and down I would convert to barbs and clamps for future iterations, or go back to air. As a result, I kept my loop in that fashion for all of about 3 weeks.

Since then, I have reorganized, reconfigured, rebought, and added many new components leaving me on my 5th iteration of my loop in my ~3 months of ownership. As expensive as it is, it's highly addicting to watercool. Once you get the hang of draining, routing, filling, and bleeding your system, it becomes much easier to handle future upgrades - no matter what it is you are upgrading.

Don't take this the wrong way - I'm not discouraging you of your purchase. Rather, I am just saying that it's a big shock moving from air to water, and it takes time to mentally and physically recuperate from the giant overhaul. The main point is that things will get better with time, and maybe the wheels will start turning again that may allow you to do previously unimaginable things.

If you drop below 60fps in Crysis it's definitely a CPU bottleneck. My 6950s in CFX doesn't drop below 75fps in the Crysis benchmark, so you quad-SLI setup shouldn't either.

If you want to spend more money after this, you should consider dual MARS II
The benchmark is a pre-rendered scene that runs like a movie. It doesn't provide accurate numbers because when you play the same level in game, you get lower frames usually.
