Got a couple questions and would like some advice. Just up graded my PSU to the 1.2Kw all went fine now thinking about the mother board. I have a I7 975x right now but would like to move up to a 1155 or 2011 which gives me three options. Go with an Aurora R3 for 1155 or R4 and more expensive extreme 2011. And third a third party like Asus or MSI, then run into all the custom wiring to make it all work. I see some people have had luck at getting it all together but I have yet to find any how to guides on this. Right now I'am running 3 X 27 monitors with Dual Mars 760's with a stock score of P16894 3dmark11. I think it should be better but my old Gulf cpu may be holding things back. Also working on cleaning the wire mess got some new cables on order. I love Alienware and a fan of the Area 51 case would like it to run the best it can and still retain some of it's heritage. Any advice, thoughts, suggestions would be of great help.
