    no im just mad im in college lol. my life goal is to have a 3x32" eyefinity display =P
    - bufus101 January 24, 2012, 8:40 am
    and maybe a little jelly, i have no room on my desk for a second monitor lol
    - bufus101 January 24, 2012, 8:40 am
    What I would like to do eventually is build myself a home theater super computer.

    A processor with 12 cores that runs stable at at least 4GHz and can be easily overclocked to almost 9GHz (yes it IS possible with a liquid nitrogen cooling system).
    3 Overpowered graphics cards on a 3-way SLI setup.
    64GB or DDR3 RAM at 2600MHz
    1500W PSU
    256 GB SSD
    at least 3 TB of HDD storage
    A shit ton of LED's to make it look fucking awesome
    A mobo to support EVERYTHING.
    And then to top it off. 6 monitors. All 1080p. 3 on top, 3 on bottom, wall mounted, and a 7.1 surround sound system.

    THAT... would be fucking awesome.
    - Disco January 24, 2012, 8:52 am
    what exactly is 7.1? and you know you can get almost all of this today, like most of this exists currently. Though the SSD will be a buttload of money lol. That does sound quite awesome though. my dream is quite similar

    to be more basic:
    6 monitors like you said
    overall good and well equipped computer
    but i want to be able to control everything from a touchpad, through my computer. ive been researching those universal touch pads that can control your whole house and such, thats the shit i want. Add that to your entertainment system and we are in heaven =P
    - bufus101 January 24, 2012, 8:56 am
    I know I can get all this stuff right now. But I'm out of money atm xD

    7.1 is pretty much just overdone 5.1 surround. Unnecessarily much.
    - Disco January 24, 2012, 8:59 am
    Haha i think i have enough saved up to almost complete that setup. minus the super awesome computer lol. but im waiting to buy anything crazy until im out of college
    - bufus101 January 24, 2012, 9:01 am
    what would be even better for the monitors is if they were seamless. then I could use that as my TV as well.
    - Disco January 24, 2012, 9:41 am
    it is possible. i think there are companies that sell tvs like that
    - bufus101 January 24, 2012, 9:55 am
    I just tried taking apart an old monitor and removing the frame. It still sorta works, but I think I may have damaged one of the pieces because the backlight doesn't work and the computer doesn't know it's their. :( Plus it's an eyesore. :/

    - Disco January 24, 2012, 12:06 pm
    did you make that gadget yourself? thats awesome lol. i just programmed my first gadget and its not too difficult, but it will take some learning to get to the cool stuff
    - bufus101 January 24, 2012, 11:03 pm
    I did not. I simply found one I liked and edited it from there.
    - Disco January 24, 2012, 11:12 pm
    could you link me that one? xD ive been having trouble finding a good one so far. a lot of them are strange
    - bufus101 January 24, 2012, 11:25 pm
    This skin comes with a variety of different themes, but I stick with the "Dark Gear" one.
    - Disco January 25, 2012, 12:22 am
    If you use a liquid nitrogen cooling system, you'd need a separate PSU for the cooling system, and it would be bulky and require a lot of modification to the case, and all in all, there is a higher risk with liquid nitrogen than with regular liquid cooling, and honestly regular liquid cooling is more efficient, and 9Ghz, is honestly too overpowered, and from the looks of your dream build a 1.5Kw PSU isn't going to be enough, you'll be draining power so fast, and plus, if you have any PSU over 1.2Kw, you have to have a special outlet installed in your house, and you'll be drawing about $20 per day in energy, JUST for the computer.
    - Lambeau January 25, 2012, 1:12 am
    As in regards to your monitor, what you probably did was short circuit the inverter, which is the most delicate part of the entire monitor. thus explaining why your computer doesn't acknowledge it as a monitor. (this isn't 100% accurate since I'm not there to actually look at it) You can find a replacement inverter for fairly cheap, most likely around $15 - $25.
    - Lambeau January 25, 2012, 1:15 am
    Since I can't reply to the other comment I'll just reply here. I've gone into more detail about my monitor in this thread -→ http://boards.4chan.org/diy/res/130164
    I've put most of the metal surroundings back together and I'm a lot closer to getting this thing working than I was before.
    - Disco January 25, 2012, 6:55 am
    thanks, the only thing i found resembling yours though is the two bottom legs of that big gear thing. ill have to figure out how to tweak some things to my liking
    - bufus101 January 25, 2012, 8:53 am
    The folder "Main Thingy" is the biggest portion of what I'm using.
    - Disco January 25, 2012, 9:16 am
    alright thanks. now all i need is a second monitor haha. that gadget is quite large

    nice, how did you get the desktop folders like that? are you using rainmeter?
    - Lambeau January 25, 2012, 1:05 am

    Dark Tower? First thing that came to mind. Though I can think of many other books and shows with that reference.
    - Grand6Loki January 24, 2012, 9:20 pm
    Ya, its the Dark Tower or at least that's what I thought when I set it.

    Here is a rare look at my desktop with everything active. Usually my icons, superbar, and gadgets are hidden. Very minimalist lol.

    where you get those gadgets?

    - Disco January 24, 2012, 8:28 am
    just got it, but how do you get more gadgets then the ones it came with? all i can do is alter the skins
    - bufus101 January 24, 2012, 8:38 am
    google rainmeter skins and pick one you like, then adjust it to your liking. That's what I did with mine.
    - Disco January 24, 2012, 8:41 am
    you can actually alter how it runs and everything? by altering the setup file?
    - bufus101 January 24, 2012, 8:45 am
    Documents > Rainmeter > Skins > (skin you're using) > file.ini. Open up that file for each individual layer of the skin then just find the line of code you need to change and do it. I see you have some programming experience, so you should be able to figure it out.
    - Disco January 24, 2012, 8:47 am
    - Disco January 24, 2012, 8:58 am
    oh so its all done in notepad and rainmeter loads that file in to change its settings. i see. So that allows for quite a bit of customization eh? now i just need to learn it lol
    - bufus101 January 24, 2012, 8:59 am
    you can also right click the specific skin and hit "Edit Skin" and it will open up the .ini file for you.
    Make sure you back it up before you start customizing though, lol.
    - Disco January 24, 2012, 9:00 am
    how do you reload a gadget to your desktop once you've unloaded the skin?

    EDit: never mind got it

    Nice desktop. I got a new laptop today and just finished personalizing it a bit. Quick question, how do you hide the programs on your desktop? I'd really rather not have them showing
