what's your budget?

no more than 3k

THREE K!!! I'm going to have fun with this one, I'll have it posted sometime tonight

Alright thanks some things I forgot to mention was im trying to duplicate my main desktop display to atleast 3 other monitors I believe this calls for a matrix switch I found an IO gear 5x2 switch but I wasn't sure that was what I needed and I plan on getting a 7.1 speaker system im not exactly sure how that would work with a HDMI connection and I was looking at 3 different soundcards but I couldnt decide which would work best for what im trying to do

not sure if u can get 7.1 sound through hdmi connection, but part of me thinks it does support it. if im thinking correctly i think u have to have the hdmi go through an audio video reciever which then sends the audio to the speakers and the video to the screen, or if u want an eaiser method is for rough 7.1 u can get the speaker and then hook them to the coumputer through an aux cable u dont need a soundcard to do this but a soundcard will improve sound quality, i personally am getting an external sound card but if u have room in the comp get an internal one


okay sorry for the wait, this should be pretty bitchin, I changed the Mobo to a ASUS uber high quality and good overclocking, asrock is good... for budget builds, not 2.5K




GPU/Ram (second set)

Power Supply




Fan controller

Heatsink fans

Rear exhaust fan

5x 120 fans

Hauppauge WinTv-HVR 1850 kit

Asus Xonar 7.1 116 Db

Avermedia HD game broadcaster


heres how you should have your cards for optimal air flow for your 670s

top PCI-E 1x=Hauppauge

first PCI-E 3.0 16x=EVGA 670

second PCI-E 1x=unpopulated

first PCI slot=Asus Xonar

second PCI-E 3.0 16x slot=2nd EVGA 670

second PCI slot=unpopulated

last PCI 2.0 16x slot=Avermeadia HD game broadcaster

replace the side 230 with the 4 xigmatek fans, more airflow with 4 of them

replace the rear 140 with the 140 xigmatek fan

put on 120 fan on the top with the 230

replace the stock fan on the TPC812 with the cosair SP120s it will cool almost as good as a H100

this is awesome thank you
