Who thats huge! (warning geek moment) it looks like something the Borg might plug themselves into!

Do you have an implant so you can communicate with the collective 24/7?

Ok thats enough ST stuff :wink02:

Seriously, that looks like an awesome bit of kit - how much would that be worth shop bought?

shop bought you are looking at about $3000.

Nice dude. I really like the case. Why didn't you maybe SLI it or something? Was it too much cash, or would u have not used it? otherwise, pretty good system you got there.

Well with the video card being the most expensive part of the whole thing at $285 I really couldnt affird two at the time but i do plan on running SLI in the near future...

Since this has officially turned into the GEEK THREAD!!

Let ask a question...

How can I hook up two projecters plus two screens to a computer? I want to be able to project the same image on the dual projectors... yet also project different images at times.

Do I run two cards, with a splitter off of each card? Or do I run dual cards, with a three-way splitter off of one card?
