Please feel free to comment or ask questions
Very nice looking system. Looks like a job well done. One thing though, yer desk is too clean, geeez
Nice setup...hows that TFT monitor for gaming? I was thinking about getting one.
monitor is the one thing i forgot to mention. Its a SONY SDM-S74/Black 17 " with 16 ms response rate.
here is a newegg link ( got to love how the price decresed like 25% since the time i bought it ) http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...006-077&depa=1
And about LCD monitors and gaming I must say that I havent noticed any difference. I played D3 for a while as well as CS and there was no problems at all. I heard that if the LCD has 16ms response rate or better than there would be no ghosting or anything like that, and my experience supports that.
Very nice mod, looks interesting. I was wondering about the mesh you got for the 120mm fan in front, it looks nice, but were did you get it?
hehe, so good things are with the 16ms lcds. Im going to save my money up for one With your 6800GT and that monitor do you have to play at a certain resolution? I only have a 5900 and hl2 would slow down baddly at 1200x1000 res.
great mod! wish i had the time and the $$$ *jealous*
here are the meshes there are also sold in 80 mm veriety
yes every LCD has its default resolution that it works best with, with mine its 1280 x 1024 but 6800gt handles it with no problems When you look at specs for LCDs they tell you their "natural" resolution. I am pretty sure you could buy a 16 inch LCD with "natural" resolution lower than 1280 x 1024.
