An anonymous reader writes "A system-builder, Dario D., built a triple screen gaming PC in early 2010 that can still run all of the top games. For under $1,000. See link, and he points out you can do even better with a 2011 build."

    Ya I like how he quotes his amazing system is quoted for running games single monitor. Ummm if you have to run them single monitor to keep them playable (and you do with that mid-low range card) then how is it a 3 monitor gaming machine? Having 3 monitors doesn't make it so. That just means it is a machine with 3 monitors. It isn't a triple monitor gaming machine unless you use those three for games.

    Even then he's clearly lying about some things. He says it runs Bad Company 2 well. Ummmm.... No. BC2 hits a system hard. It runs well on my quad core desktop with a 5870. It runs ok on my dual core laptop with a 5850M, which is about the same as a 5750-5770 desktop card. So here you have a system with a graphics card with half the shaders as my laptop and a lower clock speed, as well as a much slower CPU, and you say it going to do well in BC2? Not so much. It is just a very hungry game.

    My only guess is he feels the need to try and validate his cheap PC as being "Awesome". No, sorry dude, it isn't. It's a cheap PC. That's fine, not everyone wants an expensive PC, but don't play make believe.
