Build A Tri-monitor Rackmount PC At Home! – Gizmo Watch

Build A Tri-monitor Rackmount PC At Home! – Gizmo Watch: “can be quite deceptive, people say! What appears complicated may not be the case in reality. For those of you who thought building a tri-monitor rackmount computer was close to impossible, there is some heartening news. With electronic essentials, basic know-how of technology and loads of patience, you can build your own tri-monitor rackmount at home. For the ultra-high resolution of 4800×1200, you can use the Dell 2007fp. This would also ensure that there is no screen overlap. In order to power three DVI monitors via a single PC, we use two identical video cards. Two 256MB XFX 7600GT ‘Fatal1ty’ PCI-E(x16) SLI Passive cards will suffice for now, as they come with heatpipes and large heatsinks. The motherboard used here is the Asus P5N-E SLI NF650i and the CPU is an Intel Core 2 Duo E4300. For our TRC, we opt for 2×1Gb Corsair Value Select, DDR2 PC5300 RAM and 250Gb SATA Samsung SP2504C hard-disk.
The power supply for the PC is through an Xilence Office Edition 460W Semi Fanless. If you wish to access your files through a laptop or HTPC when the power is off, you can choose to go with Network Attached Storage (NAS). For the integration of the parts, a Dell Powerconnect 2716 16-port Gigabit managed switch can be employed. When you have put all the parts together, you can get a 12u 19″ cabinet (a tad expensive, though!). With the new set-up, you can now watch live TV or record it wirelessly through HTPC. Sounds quite cool, ain’t it?”
