I'm using 2x HD 7970s.

Do these high res displays work on notebooks?

1. hdmi with ati 4550, manufacturer says 1080p is the highest
2. Nvida Go 7900GS 7900gs with single link dvi

Have a desktop with hd 5450 card that i think would work (?)but would also want to connect the notebooks.

The first two are not enough to drive one of these monitors. You need dual-link DVI (or a display port) and the ability to do 1440p or 1600p or higher.

Look at the manufacturer's page for your HD 5450 and see if it has a Dual-link DVI port - pretty sure it should support 1440p/1600p.

This is the monitor I purchased "★ACHIEVA Shimian★QH270-IPSBS QHD 2560x1440 27" LG S-IPS Monitor Speaker WHITE" from the following dealer: "accessorieswhole"



I have connected it to my HD6950 with perfect results. No dead pixels, no noticeable light bleed, beautiful display all the way around. Text is super sharp and CS GO looks freaking fantastic at this resolution. I primarily bought this for Photoshop and I previously had a Acer 23" TFT display that just looks plain bland next to it. I am noticing a bit more motion lag in twitchy games, but nothing I can't live with. It also shipped with three random doo rags...I am not kidding!!! LOL! The only cons I have are that the VESA mounts are a bit shallow and I had to get some hard rubber grommets to make my existing screws work.

Monitor on my desk...desk is pure white and it is a perfect match!

Box inside the shipping box...I would have like to have seen better packing on the external box, but no harm done!

Close up of the screen...makes it look kinda bad, but this is not at all what the monitor looks like through the human eye!

Inside the Shimian box...packed very nicely, but the 110V adapter was in right in front of the screen...eek!

Specific model # marked outside the box...I highly recommend this version only!

Some really awesome doo rags for the thug in you...***!!!

Honestly, I was sick of all the incompatible games with surround. Or the games that were kind of compatible, but you needed a user made patch that would break every time an official patch would come out. Or the games that would keep their UI on the far left and the far right, resulting in neck pain from twisting my neck every 2 seconds.
One huge, high res screen is so much better in my opinion. I wanted to love surround (had the setup for over a year) but I also just want to play my games and not worry about compatibility and finding unofficial patche.

run it in windowed mode and stretch the screen size ftw

I will admit that at first I was very enticed by eyefinity and since I got my Shimian I don't miss it at all. I ran it for about 9 months and I totally agree that 1 large monitor is just better.

CROSSOVER 2720MDP hdmi would those work, or anyone tried them?

Checked the hd5450 , and its Dual-Link DVI 2560 x 1600 at 60Hz.

FSM-270YG vs the Acheiva Shimian... Which to pick?

And what do I need to run 3 of these together? Currently using a 5770 which I guess I can't use.
