I was of the same opinion myself. That is until I got a chance to play with it. It is much better than I first thought and the bezels just don't stand out like I initially thought they would.

3x 42" was my first decision, but that was nixed by the other half. Only got 2 monitors on order atm, coz I'll need SLI to run the third.

Those issues would also apply to a surround setup with similar tiny 23-24" screens. The view would be wider but still very narrow in height. I'd love to get three 46-55" screens but I simply don't have room for that on my table
3x 46-55" = . By the way, my Phase unit will turn up on Monday. Can't wait to try some sub zero cooling on this Xeon.

Me too but they kept replacing them. You will because they have all kinds of stuff you can apply to motherboard etc. for keeping condensation out know. Just read up on all the methods our get feedback from people on the forums that are doing it. I still have my Mach II phase change in my hallway closet.

Got a 460 a couple of days ago. Coming from an HD4870 was still a leap, especially in crysis. OCed the card right away at what seems to be a normal enough OC (after changing the thermal paste), and idle temps are sitting at 37. Pretty good I think

Love the card!

Nice Enjoy the kickass performance, Just wait when you overclock it with a good fan profile too, it's a 480 like performance.

I just received my Evga GTX 470. Still waiting for other parts to roll in to complete the rig so will have to wait a while.

Get the latest MSI AfterBurner, and set a good fan profile, and overclock too if you want.
