    Ikea desk gallery

    The shipping is outrageous, 120% on my order which I refuse to pay that much for fake wood. If you have the time you can easily copy the design and build your own, even use ikea legs which I plan to do for my own desk. go to your local lumberyard, if you have a car than it's better to get...

    Was there ever an alternative to the SR-X capable of any overclocking?

    Xeons are meant to be stable, you can't be stable if you're overclocking. Plus xeons are server grade CPUs and will take more beatings than the highest i7 available as it's there nature. Stability comes at a price though...

    I'm giving in and starting from scratch. Some of the best cases around, quality does come at a price. The m10 will suit your needs but the corsair 900d may look nicer but not necessarily better.

    Computer Desk (3 monitors wont fit)

    I'd recommend the galant desks from ikea, those are pretty sturdy and affordable. $300+ may sound like a lot but space to cost ratio is pretty cheap. The other way is to get a 3 way stand for 30" vesa displays, this way you don't have to spend more money on a desk.

    I'm actually buying everything all at once, I never buy 1 piece at a time. The monitors though will probably be bought last or just 1 at first until everything is setup as they're about $1000 a pop ( I love color accuracy^^) and plus my father's in the business and they only use Nec.

    Building a gaming PC

    I'd personally try to shoot for the 7970GHZ edition, if you're just gaming your GPU should usually be your most expensive component.

    Building a gaming PC

    Games are still applications so the better the hardware the better, however 16GB of DDR3 2400 is perfect and a 4770K will be great. Since you are gaming I'd get 2x MSI BE Lightning 7970GHZ-E gfx cards for video stability if doing multi monitor setups, sure you can run 6 displays off of one gfx...

    3 Monitor Desk Mounts?

    Spacedec SD-FS-T Atdec is the way to go, you can adjust the spacing, tilt, swivel like you can on it's normal stand so that means it's perfect for portrait as well. You can also screw it into your desk if it's wood that is.

    Eyefinity desk size help.

    Looks like my guesstimates weren't off at all, pretty sweet! Saw some picks in the ikea desk gallary thread and the black-brown finish seems to be my favorite and it matches my room pretty well (got to repaint those walls><) Went with the A-Legs as I liked the shiny chrome/steel, the T-Legs...

    PC can't get into BIOS

    Try removing your usb and mouse/keyboard devices as sometimes that won't allow you to post, it could also just mean the mobo is dead or it could be your cpu and if that's the case well.. you may have to contact intel or amd depending on what your cpu is to see if you can get a replacement.
