Default Re: Build COMPLETE!

since you'll be running sli in the future, I guess you're already planning on upgrading that monitor...? the 285 by itself is already overkill for the native res on that monitor (1680x1050?), let alone two, once you sli you're gonna pick up a bigger monitor, right...? a 30" with slied 285s would look amazing...

GJDM.

There should be some holes in the motherboard try which you can thread the cables through to make it a little neater if you want.

You still need to get better cable management. Looks great though!

Yeah use the Antec's amazing cable capabilities. I believe that there is room behind the motherboard tray to store those cables.

just like you I read that as well, but the fact remains, going sli would be a total waste of money if he doesn't upgrade his monitor, I was just trying to explain that to him, and not just any upgrade either, he'll need a pretty big monitor to even be able to notice a difference with two cards compared to the one...

I realized that, and I won't be upgrading to SLI anytime in the near future, but when I do, I WILL upgrade my monitor as well, most likely to something around a 30 inch. Thank you for the suggestions, though.

Rohan, I'll be shipping it to you today so you can try it out....lmao

And as far as cable management goes, I will improve it....maybe...It's a tight fit as it is, so I will have to improve on my Cable management skills.
