I also keep my brightness at 33% because it's the perfect balance with my room lighting. This results in my monitor not being the brightest thing in my field of vision, but it's not so dark that I have trouble seeing. It's perfect. Back before I learned about this, I used to keep my monitor at 100% and then I wondered why I had eyestrain.


When did he say that? I'm trying to find it, but I don't see it anywhere in this thread.
Sorry i was away for this particular discussion, it would be nice to SLI later, kinda of future proofs my machine a little.

Well it's debatable whether crossfiring or SLI is good for futureproofing. But other than that, running SLI can boost your system nicely. Just don't think that it will let you hold on to hardware for a few years and still be competitive with the new stuff. The reason why I say it is debatable is because the 780ti performs better than a Titan which is basically an SLI 680 run on 1 card. With AMD, however, this is not always the case. Crossfired 7970s are better than an R9 290 which is a little better than 1 7970.

I just want to add that I don't think running SLI is a bad idea. I don't want to rain on your parade and discourage you from doing it. I totally think you should do it if you have the means of doing it. I think the better way to future proof it though is to think of it like this:

You future proof your motherboard so it is capable of running future cards and future SLIs. That is better than thinking that you can run current SLIs that will perform like future cards. The worst things to future proof is your graphics cards and your CPU. The best things to future proof are your motherboard, PSU (getting higher wattage than you need right now), your case (getting one that has enough room for future plans), and a higher capacity SSD than you need right now since SSDs are going down in price quickly.

Ok, My case, my SSD, and my PSU are good for that, right? Wpuld you recommend that MOBO that was mentioned early in this thread?

You did change the PSU from the NEX750G to the G2 right?
