I am doing this same setup. What mobo did you use and did they all fir or did you use extenders and what was the total cast of your rig including the antec power supply mobo, cards and mem....?
isnt it too late to make such setup
Not if you are getting most of the hardware or have most of it already.
I have one very large antec 1200 case that has 4 pce slots so I am working on getting three 5830s running in there...
I was going to do 4 but they would be spaced too close together and prob run too hot... currently I have a 4850 x2 and a 5830 extreme in there... if anything though this cases airflow is excellent even with 5 hard drives in there and 3 cards
temps are staying nice running at full steam....
so... that's not a big expense. I might get a very good deal on a bunch of used 5850s and since I won't be able to fit more than
3 cards in my existing system that I actually use... I was wondering the cheapest route to get them going.
All flat out buying new rigs at this time might not be a great idea.. I'm pumping out between 750 to 1000 mhash
and only pulling in about .5 to 1 bitcoin a day.... but I find it fascinating.. so we'll see.
Plus I use the current system for HD video editing so the eyefinity comes in handy.
