It's cable management time!
And what kind of video card is that, a 6450?
i never knew that the cables r so long
i just installed it and took a pic and it is a temp case
no cable management here, it was a rush job.
gone is the Antec 620 and replaced it with a CM TX3 with dual 92mms, the 620 will be going into another build..
Why do you have VGA cables attached to both cards? Are you going to be running them cross-fire mode or not?
Why do you have VGA cables attached to GTX560s at all oO
* 2D Surround with 3 x 17" LCD's @ 3840 x 1024 full resolution.
* N560GTX-Ti Hawks in SLi - 2 VGA in top card 1 VGA in bottom card
(you guys know nVidia didn't implement Surround on single GPU until Kepler)
* the 17" LCD's are Dells and have DVI but I do not have three extra DVI cables (5 units in house..!)
* the top blue cable is not a VGA it's CAT-5 cable
* Cross-fire is Radeon... I don't do Radeon as you know.
are you guys really that far off-beat.?
Actually, I didn't know this about NVIDIA's Surround View on the 500 series cards.
We know CF is AMD, not NVIDIA. I thought these were AMD cards as it was a flexible ribbon.
And, you have 3 blue cables there, not two. The top most is ethernet, the middle and bottom are VGA .
Who's off-beat now? :lol:
I just felt (and still feel) like connecting VGA monitors (or DVI monitors over VGA) to 560s is a waste
does this mean your sending me 3 DVI cables or PayPal me some funds to get them myself..?
I'll swap them for one of the 560s.
That said, I understand if you would rather not break your surround setup. So the 580 you just removed from the other rig will be fine
you got the power supply for it.?
I do like the efficiency of the 660 Ti over the 580..
My PSU is more than adequate. I also have a 5.25" bay dedicated pci-e connector PSU I could use, and the wiring to connect a third ATX PSU if needed, for a total of 1450W.
wow, thank god times have changed and all that power (and wiring) is not needed..
Well, those 5.25" front-bay PSUs were most common afaik at the point where a lot of graphics cards first started needing pci-e power connectors, and PSUs of the time weren't set up for that. But they were never that popular.
Dual PSUs you only really see on servers and benchmarking rigs (LN2 multi-GPU setups can use over 2000 watts).
I'm thinking of making a small NAS sever for the family, have a few able to remote in from their locations.
I was thinking small so maybe a A10-5800K set-up might do the trick..
Overkill. Just get the cheapest low-power mini-itx platform you can find and put a SATA controller in the pci-e slot, imo.
EDIT: Unless by "have a few able to remote in from their locations" you mean run remotely accessible virtual machines. I just assumed you mean remote desktop access.
