    Thanx for the happy B-day... i'm kinda surprised nobody said n e thing about the devil ducky hahaha.. and yeah, i have duel monitors running... it acts as 1 big desktop... i do alot of digital art/photoshop and such, so it helps out alot having 2 monitors...

    It only has 2 fans in it, but it cools better than my last case which had 6 fans in it hahaha... so i guess it would help performance a lil bit

    Here's what i have in it:
    3.0 P4 with hyper threading
    2 gigs of memory
    200gb SATA Hard Drive
    40gb IDE hard drive
    DVD write drive
    Cd write drive
    256 MB duel display video card
    duel Flatpanel monitors
    bluetooth wireless keyboard and mouse
    5.1 surround sound
    Finger Print Password reader...

    I've put a lil bit of money into my computer haha...about $1000... i worked for Dell for 11 months, so i kinda know a lil bit about computers... I saved alot of money by building it myself... if i would bought a computer like this in a store, it would easily been $2000+

    I got a 6?? something Pentium 2 or 3 that was given to me.
    This thing must be 8 years old but it beats the 166 it replaced.
    OS is WINDOWS 98 SE.......gack!

    (Man! I wish I had the cash I spent on that 166!)

    Dezavala,

    I have a dual-monitor rig myself, and I have to recommend this program to you:

    Ultramon

    It is the most useful dual-monitor software I've ever used.  Definitely check it out!


    In case you're interested, here's what I'm running in my rig:

    Pentium 4 3.4Ghz 64bit
    2gigs of DDR2-533 Ram
    ATI 256mb Radeon X800 Pro
    Dual Striped RAID 74gb Raptor drives
    800gb additional SATA drives
    Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 4 Pro
    Dual 17" Acer Monitors
    Logitech 5.1 THX Surround Sound Speakers

    I used to have that keyboard in the picture, I hate the feel of it now that i have my new keyboard (Logitech MX5000). and i downloaded that ultramon program, it's very handy, thanx for telling me about it. I saw that it cost about $40 to buy it... did you buy it, or get it the free way like i do ;)

    yea, the trial may have been extended somewhat longer than they had planned on my machine.....ha



    i love my keyboard and mouse. the mouse especially. have been having a few issues with the keyboard lately though....actually, it seems to have gone away, but for about 2 weeks there (I've had them for over a year, so it's pretty random) it was just dropping signal left and right...even with new batteries.


    I don't know, but if it's good now, so am I!

    yea Vic, it's definitely great. actually, it's really hard to go back to 1 monitor when i'm at work.


    and with the falling price of LCD monitors, it's actually possible. I got each of those for around $200 a pop, and wound up actually selling a few old CRT monitors to pay for them. actually, that's how I paid for most of my computer parts.....selling old computer parts that I either had lying around or parts that I had acquired through various repair and upgrade jobs I've done.

    the dual monitors are really handy if you need alot of desktop room, and exspecially if you work with really big pictures (i just ordered a 8 megepixel camera, should be in thurs)

    its not so much that as needing the space with say a webpage in progress open while working on graphics, or having several spreadsheets open that you would like to be able to see at the same time...
