Wow, $50 off. Yes, that's a good deal on a very good PSU.

SLi is when you have two graphics cards in which you said you wanted since you'll be going with 4 monitors or something, you wanted to have 2 PCI-E ports didn't you.

That's why I'd go with the 3770 as well since you'll have the PCI-E enabled on the ivybridge processor.

1. the 2700k overclocks futher however a 3770k will be at the same level at around of a 2700k at 5ghz if it hits 4.6 - 4.8Ghz. Basically different architecture.
2. Since you're going SLi I'd take a look at the 2011 socket processors for the extra PCI-E Lanes you get on that chipset. Asus z77 board or the Gigabyte Z77 seem to be the norm. I would personally go with the P9z77 pro board, I just like asus though, nothing wrong with gigabyte.
3. Have a look at the silver arrow or the Corsair H100, it's a sealed loop and tested a load by corsair prior to leaving the factory, you'll be fine with that.
4. Never ever ever ever use the PSU that comes with the tower/box, if you're building a PC you want to get a case without a PSU and go with one of the big brand names. Get this http://www.overclock.net/t/1140534/psu-calc-final-release and use it with your hardware and it'll give you a load of pSU's to look at.

Hi dude...

Sorry to get back to you again, I've been looking at Gigabyte Motherboard lately... and been confused with Z77 that you are referring, I've been comparing to one another and still cannot decide for which one is best fit to my need.
I know:
1. I would need to choose z77 with the one with 2-way SLI ready in order to fulfill my 4 monitor needs, am I correct?
2. Now, some of the z77 have integrated graphic, would that means if I buy another PCI-e VGA card, then I would be able to use 4 monitors with me? as I could use the integrated one for 2 monitors, and use the other 2 monitors with the PCI-e VGA that I'm gonna buy?
3. Perhaps if anyone could suggest their recommendation for z77 or Asus which type is the best mother board.
4. Now I've even seen some motherboard supporting 4-way SLI, what would that even means?
5. Regarding the cooler, would you prefer Corsair H100 over silver arrow? when you said H100 is a sealed loop, would that means it is actually a water cooler but we dont need to fill any water into it as it is sealed loop? (I tried to google to understand this, but seems yet able to get what it means by sealed loop).

thanks in advance

Does anyone know,
What would be the best/cheapest choice for graphic card that can do 6 monitors (or at least 4 monitors)? I know that there are some graphic cards need to be combined with active adapter in order to get more monitors, however after doing some price search for the active adapters they are not cheap at all.
I need more monitor just for multitasking work only, I don't play that much of a game really, so any monitors as long as it can do extended features up to 4 would be just fine. Of course 6 is even better. biggrin.gif

thanks alot.

1. You will need two GPU's if you want 4 monitors
2. No because the onboard gets disabled when you attach a GPU
3. P8Z77 Pro
4. 4 way SLI is 4 GPU's. So you could have 4 GTX680's or two GTX690's etc etc
5. The H100 is a sealed watercooling setup that doesn't require refilling

As for your next question

If you're not going to be gaming then something like the GTX650ti in SLi or the 7850 in Xfire. Bear in mind you'll need two of these cards.

thanks compuman,

1. Yes, beside the 2 GPUs, I will also need a motherboard that is SLI ready?
2. Thanks for the brief explanation.
3. thanks for the recommendation for ASUS motherboard, what about Gigabyte? any recommendation if I were to get gigabyte, which one do you think is best?
4. thanks again..
5. I guess it is almot 99% I'm gonna get H100 then, just in case do you have other recommendation perhaps?

just out of the curiosity is getting 2 of GTX650ti, or 2 of 7850 will still be cheaper than getting one GPU that support up to 6 monitors, and buy some active adapters?

wasnt on and looking through threads so yes, this is a post to an old thread.

as far as this statement goes

The time when he'll be spending more is with the 2011 chipset. But he's not expressed any interest in that.

lol. you are so far off as force pointed out to you, you look stupid for making such a stupid statement.

of course budget mattered. it isnt just the cpu price. its also the board price. there are price differences in all of the chipset series. did you know you can buy p67 mobo for less than $100, z68 boards for less than $125 that have the same features as z77 boards costing $175 ?

budget is a question everyone should ask unless the poster needing help specifically states " budget is not a concern" which later he did. but no one knew that before he was asked and he responded.

stop thinking you know everything. i have read your posts and you know what some dont, others know things you dont. in other words, you dont know everything.

friends ?

*edit* also, you can run 4 monitors from 1 6870 using 2 display adapters. i dont know if and what 7xxx series can drive 4 monitors but, you NEED 2 graphics cards.
