Adding a 4th monitor to eyefinity

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

currently running an eyefinity set up that runs at 5760x1080. Obviously all monitors are running at 1920x1080. Thinking of adding a 1680x1050 monitor on a wall mount for IM, movies, gauges etc.

My question is, if I add a 4th monitor that is NOT the same resolution as the others, will it skew the resolution I have now and force eyefinity, into going into some "best fit" resolution?

Thanks.

I've never had an eyeinfinity setup but if that 4th monitor isn't apart of the "group" im pretty sure you can change the resolution of that monitor alone.

You can create Eyefinity group with 4 monitors but all monitors resolution will be defaulted to the lowest 1680x1050 and it's ugly and distorted.

 

It will be fine to keep the existing 5760x1080 and the 1680x1050 as an extended desktop for  IM, movies, gauges etc.
