    It is a modified Jahnke Computer Line 285. The desk wouldn't fit in my small study so carpenter made some adjustments to the pedestal. Great quality desk, best I have had. Rest of study furniture I got customer made in similar Walnut finish...

    Just upgraded my rig a little, overdue by 5 years! New case, more RAM, new graphics card, new SSD. :) also treated myself to the Audioengine S8 subwoofer, combined with the A2 speakers makes an epic 2.1 set up. NAS and Star Wars art ;)

    I hear you fellas. I start games but life gets in the way and never finish but I keep buying new games. I might try only having a few games installed and see how I fare.

    Just recently had some work done in the study, could really do with updating my primary system. The processor is still excellent just need a newer graphics card and some more RAM although most new games still cause me few issues on high settings.

    HP Pavilion 27xi 27-inch IPS Monitor for gaming

    This monitor looks great but can anyone confirm if it has AG coating under the gloss screen cover as the CNET review seems to indicate this but I'm not sure if this is true or not. http://reviews.cnet.com/lcd-monitors/hp-pavilion-27xi/4505-3174_7-35603096-2.html

    Will US HP Pavilion 27xi power adapter work in UK?

    Please can you let me know how you get on as I'm interested in this monitor and if it is just a simple case of replacing with a UK power cable then I'm in!

    Dell S-Line Screens - S2740L, S2440L, S2340M, S2340L, S2240M

    It is hardly an issue is it: see this article and review, as for overshoot this reviewer states, 'Good pixel responsiveness which should be able to handle fast moving scenes in movies without issue. Perhaps some issues apparent with overshoot in certain transitions.' It doesn't sound that bad to...

    Best card that doesn't heat up a room ~$150?

    Not possible I'm afraid and believe me I wouldn't be adverse to such a practicle solution were it possible. You comment is somewhat terse without knowing much about my room or circumstances before making such a generalisation.

    Best card that doesn't heat up a room ~$150?

    You would be suprised mate, my GTX480 rig makes my small study unbearable in the summer and I only live in the UK, air con is a no go. It is why I built a 2nd rig for everyday duties.

    Best card that doesn't heat up a room ~$150?

    I know this is an old thread but how did you find the HD7770 for heat output in your room? I am after exactly the same, a card that does not output much heat at all (very small room with no ventilation). This for my everyday machine (see sig), will be used for web browsing/email with a little...

    Passively cooled 1440p capable GPU with display port?

    As per the thread title mate. Is there is passively cooled GPU capable of outputting 1440p resolution via a display port output. Just for every day use maybe some films but no games. Cheers.

    Cooler running upgrade from gtx480

    Gtx 670 looks interesting. Annoying thing is my 480 can handle pretty much anything still but the heat output is ridiculous.

    Cooler running upgrade from gtx480

    I would like to upgrade my gtx480 to a quicker card that runs significantly cooler. The main reason is I have moved house and my new study is tiny. Whilst the gtx480 itself doesn't overheat as it is watercooled the amount of heat it outputs into the small room becomes unbearable after a couple...

    The only intake is the front 140mm fan so temps are fine, there is a lot of clearance above the system and behind where the exhaust fans are. I will add one 120mm fan to the side for an extra intake and have considered a new desk for my new property so that can only help things further...

    Just started Fallout 3 (potential spoilers, and wtf?)

    I don't suppose you could list the mods you have and order installed and also comment on whether the game is stable? In particular what is the night time one with the clear night sky with stars and moon?

    PC to Arcam rDAC to Arcam Solo Mini?

    Thank you, I will trial the Solo Mini and RX1's first before deciding whether to go down the AS500 route. Would you consider the Asus Xonar DX to be an adequate sound card or would the Arcam rDAC be better? Thanks for your help btw!
