Many people recommended pairing the B652 with the Lepai, which outputs 20W/channel. The B652's are rated for 40W RMS each, but you don't need an amp that powerful for them to sound good. You're not going to want to blast these anyway. They should still be plenty loud at 10-15W/channel.
Shipping is the "dealbreaker" here. You can get the B652 off Amazon for about the same price w/ free Prime shipping, assuming you have Prime. I just ordered a pair last week, actually. I also ordered the Lepai LP-2020+ to power it. Total cost under $70.
The T221 is a ridiculously awesome monitor, but I don't see what kind of purpose it would serve in a home setup. 22" with that high of a resolution seems pointless. And it's definitely ill-suited for gaming since the maximum refresh rate is 41Hz.
Agh, I just read many reports of bad backlighting, screen-door effect, and terrible input lag. And on top of that, you can't be sure whether it's an S-IPS or VA until you check the serial number. Guess I'll have to skip this one.
Nice Caselabs case. And yeah, going from 3 smaller monitors in Eyefinity/Surround to 1 30" IPS is a big jump. I'm so glad I ditched my plans for 3 U2311H and just splurged on a ZR30w. Easier to manage, better image quality, no bezels in the way during gaming.
$400 for a 3007wfp?! I want to murder someone. I paid $840 shipped for my new open box ZR30w and thought THAT was an amazing deal.
Are there any dead pixels/scratches?
Also, what are you using for lighting?
I happen to own a V351R. Overall it's a solid case. Looks beautiful and not too difficult to work with. It is annoying to connect the hard drive cables since the hard drive bays are cramped, but at least the motherboard tray is removable. Check my sig for the specs. The case is able to provide...
I'm running a pair of unlocked 6950's in Crossfire for a 30" 2560x1600 monitor. BF3 runs great (60+ avg, 40+ minimum) with Post AA set to Medium, no regular AA, and everything on Ultra + HBAO.
Considering these cards cost me about $500, I'd say it makes AMD makes a lot more sense. GTX580 3GB...
A V2120 for $235?! I thought I got an amazing deal at $362 shipped from Newegg for a brand new one, though mine is the all-black V2120X. You, sir, are in for a treat.
Here's my current ongoing build log. I started with a Rocketfish (rebranded, feature-stripped A71F) and moved to the V2120X...
This. 3x 30 inchers in landscape seems a bit ridiculous. You'd have to sit back so far that it kind of negates the point of having large monitors in the first place. Portrait mode will immerse you in games a lot better.
That's probably a big factor. Check out this article:
I know, I know, tomshardware isn't the most reputable source anymore, but this should still give some insight.
I would skip the Intel graphics and get a lower midrange card like this one:
GT430, HD 6670, HD6570, HD5670 would all be good choices.
I think you'll be fine leaving your CPU overclocked as well. I'm running an i7 970 @ 4.2GHz with two reference 6950's unlocked to 1536 shaders and overclocked to 920/1425/1.25v, all on a Seasonic X-650 PSU. Your HX650 isn't quite as good but should still be fine since your 6950's aren't...
$1050 is a good price for the ZR30W. Best deal for a brand new one I could find was about $1100. I managed to snag a new open box monitor on Ebay for $840 shipped. You could try to wait/search for special deals like that, but $1050 is definitely good.
Are you sure you want to game on just two panels? Just about every game will be negatively affected by the dual bezels in the center. FPS games, MMORPG's, you name it. I'd suggest saving up for a third screen (probably another U2410) and upgrading your graphics card.
