New Gaming Setup So Powa~

I decided I deserved a new gaming setup.  One that would be completely and utterly over the top.  So here’s what I ordered:

Maingear Shift SuperStock configured with:

  • Intel Core i7 3960X Six-Core 3.3GHz SandyBridge-E CPU
  • 32GB Corsair Vengeance DDR-1866 RAM (8x4GB)
  • 3x AMD Radeon HD 7970 3GB cards in CrossFire
  • 1500W Silverstone Strider PSU
  • 3x 480GB Corsair Force GT SSD SATA 6G (in RAID-5)
  • 1x 3.0TB Western Digital Caviar Green 5400RPM Drive
  • LSI MegaRAID SATA/SAS 9260-8i 512MB 8 port RAID card
  • 12x LG SuperMulti Blu-Ray Burner

And this monster will be driving 3x NEC MultiSync PA301w flat panels in portrait mode with EyeFinity.  This will amount to 5120×2560 resolution, more or less.

I’ve got the monitors already and hooked up to my old PC, but it can’t really handle it (I get a lot of micro-stuttering, have to turn anti-aliasing completely off, etc.).

So I can’t wait to get the new PC and have a go!  Should be ready in a week or so…

  1. “The PA301w is aimed at the professional that demands uncompromising performance and has the budget to satisfy that need. ”
