Multiple displays settings for Windows 8's Taskbar Properties

Something that a Windows 7 multiple desktop user would dream about.

This simple feature is one of the reason why I think Windows 8 rocks!

BLIMS Fine Furniture @ Robinsons Galleria -- worst after sale service

We bought ___ ______ and waited for 2 weeks, then the delivery arrived today. We are not really informed that the assembly is on the next day and that's why my wife is comfortable about the Sunday delivery because we are at the office during weekdays AND no one's at home.

While making some arguments with them regarding the assembly schedule I heard other crews including the "Manager" like laughing at my back on the other side of the phone saying "hindi naman umabot ng 2 weeks, less than 2 weeks naman na deliver (laugh)"... and more.

X79 setup it is!

I love my Q6600 and it also serves me well for almost 5yrs in January 2013!

Though if my motherboard is not having issues like USB power failures, often power on button / cold boot failures, often CMOS resetting after OC for quite some time, a bit loosed ram & pcie slot... maybe I will be still using this system for another year. Also since I'm a family man now, power consumption and heat may become a big factor to my upgrade reason.

So I finally decided for X79 setup. From my rough analysis with q6600 overclocked to 3ghz, the i7 3820 is 50%+ more faster, 30%+ less power on idle, and 10%+ less power on full throttle.

Besides I already bought all I need for my upgrade...
- Intel Core i7 3820 3.6-3.8GHz
- Asus P9X79 Pro Motherboard
- Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo Turbo Dual Fan CPU Cooler
- GSKILL RipjawsZ 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 1600mhz
- Crucial M4 128gb sata

My existing will be...
- Lian-Li PC7 casing
- Seasonic X760 PSU
- MSI Frozr II AMD Radeon 6950 2gb
- Seagate 1TB and 1.5TB I can't wait to bench this baby this weekend!

Wish me luck! :)
