post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I ordered a 27" 1920x1080 monitor but I have 2x 22" 1680x1050 monitors, would it look nice in eyefinity?

No. Get a third 22 inch 16:10 and use the 27 for games that don't support eyefinity/movies

You are going to have to drop the resolution on the new monitor. When you do eyefinity you change your resolution to 5XXX by 1080 or in your case 5XXX by 1050

I have 2x 21.5" 1080P monitors, love it, takes a bit of tweaking of colours on it's own just to make it look totally natrual, good few hours. along with bezzel compensation and etc, having different make of monitors would make it even worse let alone different size - resolution,

if you've got a 3rd monitor - have the 2 of the same in eyefinity and the 3rd montior as a seperate monitor - acting as the 'second display' so you have main focus across two monitors and secondary things in the odd monitor


i.e. game in eyefinity - teamspeak/vent/iTunes/browser in odd monitor

hmm I hadn't thought of that but combining a 16:9 monitor with a 16:10 monitor would indeed look odd... and I'm not dropping resolutions !
So I guess that for now it's a no go. Thanks for the advice though, was just wondering what to do with my old monitors once I replace them ^^
