not that i'm jealous
BUT i wanna criticize your setup. and multi-monitor setups as a whole.
i wanna point out a few things.
1. i'm not much of a gamer.
2. my gpu is a 6870 1GB
i tried 3 monitor portrait eyefinity. it was nice. i didnt like angling the outer monitors [on a FPS game]. do you prefer angling them or having them flat?
i think for browsing most definitely angling them is a must.
setting up eyefinity has not been a one click setup for me. i have my monitors managed by Actual Windows Manager. i prefer Actual Windows Manager over ultra-mon, windows and ati eyefinity because i can move programs to any monitor by keyboard shortcuts and all monitors have the taskbar cloned so i dont forget what i wanna do on other monitors.
when gaming i always have to setup eyefinity from scratch and its time consuming and its a 5 min set up which i just don't have the patience for. so when i was bored i just loaded up my game on the center monitor and play on it.
gaming on a single 1200x1920 isnt bad at all. i do participate in the 1080p vs 1200p wars in favor of 1200p but really once we load up games all those "minor" technicalities don't really matter.
having gamed on 1080, 1200p, 1600p i can honestly say there's no difference.
and gaming on the single monitor is fast and i can multitask with other programs on windows.
i think gaming on 5 monitors at the desk is overkill.
so i think you should give me your 2 extra monitors so i can use them for browsing... or else...
