So, today, I craved in and install my newest 24" 1080P monitor.

This Asus VW246H 24" monitor looks much more tidier than my Viewsonic one! The colors are also sharper and overall, it's just better.
Yes, I know... my desk is not as tidy as my monitor

My old monitor was this one :

I installed it for my mom. Since I won't be using it from now on (not even as a second monitor), I borrowed it to her. I know guys, I know... She's using a non-Genuine Windows 7. The shop she bought it from decided to sell a MSDN key and that account expired making the key blacklisted... she gonna take action soon.

She had this old 17" LCD monitor before :

Well, before it was her's, it was actually mine. I sold it to her for... 70$ I think? Now, it'll be eating the dust until I need it. And no, I won't be using a second monitor.

I'll probably receive my PSU, RAM and SSD tomorrow. But, I don't know if I'll actually start building tomorrow... I'm waiting for a VERY important call that will happen between 6PM and 8PM.

Later.

About a month ago I was able to build a new gaming rig, but my first choice for case was a poor one. Not that it was a bad case, but not for some one who uses sata to usb adapters to transfer files quicker than the network allows. Any way, I went will a Xclio Blackhawk All Black 360 Color, and it is one bad ass case. Built in fan controls, Leds colors change or can be stopped on any one color. Turn one or all fans off, and set the speeds of each group of fans independently.

Heres a quick run down:

01. Intel i7 950
02. MB- Gigabyte X58 UDR3 (sata III, & usb 3.0)
03. Corsair TX850
04. Knighthawk CPU Cooler
05. 1333 DDr3 4gigs in triple channel
06. 2 EVGA 470's -AR's (lifetime warrenty) in SLI
07. 2 VelociRaptors 10,000 RPM 150gig in raid 0
08. WD Sata III i terabyte
09. Hauppauge HD-PVR
10. Blueray 3D lite-on iHBS112
11. DVD burner, lite-on
12. I-StarUSA single sata backplane/hotswapable

According to the gigabyte manual, page 16, it tells you how to enable triple channel with 3, 4 or 6 sticks of ram. Triple channel doesn't mean its locked down to just 3 sticks from what I've read. Heres a link to the MB, choose downloads and in the left drop down, choose manual, but here's a clip of what it says.

Pay note to No.2 under triple channel.


GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1366 - GA-X58A-UD3R (rev. 2.0)

Added: The MB has 6 ram slots

Your Welcome Guy,

It can be done with 3,4, and 6 sticks. It does recommend using as few slots as possible so its best if your 64bit to go with 3 or 4 2gig sticks. Not sure if its the X58 series that only allows this, but I'm sure most newer 6 slot boards are like this as well.

Thanks for the Complements.
