ya if he didnt play at 1920x1080.. i'd have to kill him

and man, playing that close to a 40 inch must get all sorts of intense! hahaha

and ya... i dropped the gtx cuz i noticed the gt was pretty close to neck.. and the gt can overclock higher.. so i should be okay

well, thats why i wrap it up, and then put it in the original box, and then cart it up to the lan on a dolley. works great. Youd be surprised how many people use LCDs larger then 36" at quakecon, i dont think i saw one monitor smaller then 19".

got any inside shots of your new build?
