    Hi all,
    here is my PC and desk setup. Let me know what you think of my choice of components, as well as how the desk is arranged. In about a week I'm moving in to a new room where I can finally add the 3rd HP 2311f (the monitors in the video) and run EYEFINITY :D!

    Specs:
    • Intel 3930k
    • Gigabyte GA-X79-UD3
    • AMD HD Radeon 7950
    • Coolermaster CM 690 II Advanced NVidia edition (with USB 3)
    • Corsair HX-850
    • Corsair H100
    • 2x 120gb Agility 3
    • AVerMedia Game Broadcaster HD

    Nice machine! When I built my computer a couple of years back I also went with a Gigabyte board. Planning on using it solely as a Windows machine or are you thinking of turning it into a hackintosh?

    I'd like to dual boot OS X, but from what I've read, I need to get another hard drive. It's also an X79 board (so no easy way), but I've read about builds which run OS X, so it's possible.

    I actually prefer Asus boards... Gigabyte boards have failed me, twice.

    Fair enough. It's possible with only one drive, just harder, and much less recommended.
