Hey, anyone else out there running this game across three monitors? It does require some beef!

Like your last thread, this seems like an encroachment into rule 13 territory with your attempts to boost your YouTube figures.
Call me a cynic, I'm just saying what I see and I don't like it.

Just looked at your specs in the video details, why the hell would you need 2 1000 watt PSUs for an i7 920 and 2 GTX 670s?

Even one 750w PSU is overkill for that setup, including the 4GHz overclock.

edit: Woops, just noticed it's 3-way SLI

Still, 670 TDP is 170W.. and an i7 920 at 4GHz is probably no more than 150W (ballpark off top of my head).

So 3x170 + 150 = 660w, what on earth would 2 1000 watt PSU's be needed necessary? With your pumps, case fans, DVD drive, HDDS, you're probably still hitting around 80% efficiency at 70% PSU load if you were just using one of those PSUs.

I agree with you. This guy is a spammer, not a participating member of the community.

Also, having played a good bit into Last Light: DO NOT spend your money on this game if you money is of any value to you. Just blow the dust off of 2033 and play it again because Last Light isn't much more than that.

Here's something I find ironic: computer gamers spend bunches of time in dark basements just to play a video game of a guy who spends just about all of his time in dark basements.

I count three people. All you need is one, though. Seriously, if somebody is going to make new threads where his / her only participation is the first post in order to link to their stuff on some other part of the Internet, well, that's spam. He's had 5 posts on the forum since May 3. Four of those posts have been to link to his stuff off-site. One post was to dispute the suggestion that he was merely linking to stuff off-site (spamming). :lol:
