Cheaper smaller monitors for Eyefinity - Page 2

What do you mean by 16:10 ratio? Is that the 1440x900 versus 1600x900?
Also, what are your thoughts on LED backlit?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236107

thats one thing I want to be able to do, play games at max setting. Its one reason I upgraded to a 6990 (I had a 5970+5870 before, but 1gb gpu RAM was limiting).

Now lastly, with those monitors they all are DVI. Which means I'll have to buy another active display port adapter for the 6990? Or whats the passive adapter for?

Correct on the ratio. It just means you have a slightly closer to even height to length ratio. Not a huge difference, but something I recommend. As for the LED, I would stay away. As far as I know they are all side-lit, not true backlit, which means you could never look at modding the bezels. (Check the guide in my sig about removing bezels on my Asus monitors.) That being said, you may not ever want to, in which case I believe the LED option is more energy efficient and slimmer.

Lastly, you should be fine. As long as you utilize one active adapter, then you can use whatever connection you have open for the other two. I know the 6990 comes standard with one D-DVI right? So use that, and both of your available adapters and you should be golden.

Okay, thats good information! Thanks for letting me know about the backlit difference.

Yah, the 6990 has the DVI port on the card.

Last question- why that Asus monitor? Is it because it has the smallest bezels or what?

This is taking things into a different direction, but have you thought about using a triple monitor mount on the wall in front of your desk and keeping the surface of your workspace (since it is of limited size) clear for other things?

The slight issue with that is- the extra cost, my 6990 wont be able to handle the addition resolution of 3 monitors of this size (plus my hanns G is only 1050 not 1080), id still have to buy a 3rd monitor, and lastly a solid piece in the wall to mount it from (not just the drywall).

I should have been a little clearer. I assumed you were downgrading in size already so I was suggesting mounting the 'new', smaller monitors on the wall.

As far as mounting into something solid, this is easy. Locate two studs in the wall (they're all 16" apart from one another) and screw a 3/4" piece of plywood to those studs. Now you have a solid and sturdy mounting point for about $10 and five minutes. Just an idea; good luck with your project.

Oh okay. Yes, im downgrading in size. But why spend the almost 200$ to mount when theyll fit on the desk. Also, still living at home and a very recently painted room, my parents would not like that idea. Once im on my own, I'll be more than glad to do some mounting

Also- like I asked before before the slight detour of the thread, why that Asus monitor? Are there better ones?

Get one of those monoprice mounts for the 3rd monitor that clamp to your desk and just have it floating to the side.
