Eyefinity up and running

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just got my 3 new monitors. 3x Samsung SyncMaster SA850 24"
These are sweeet! Pricey, but sweet.

Specs:
1920x1200 Resolution
PLS Panel
LED Backlight
DisplayPort 1.2
4 Port USB 3.0 Hub
Fully adjustable stand (height, swivel, tilt, rotate)

Right now they're just sitting on the desk. But I will be getting a triple monitor stand of some kind. Most likely either the Planar or the XFX. Mainly because those are the only two that seem to be available here, that support up to 24". If anyone knows of any others available in Canada, please feel free to make any recommendations

I tested with Dirt2 in Eyefinity mode, and it's amazing. The last thing I will need to go along with this is a video card upgrade. The 6850 CrossfireX setup has enough power, but not enough memory for 3 screens. I noticed a big hit in framerate (as expected). I'll probably get a single 7970. But I'm waiting for the prices to drop a little, also waiting for the non-reference cards to come out, hopefully there will be one small enough to fit in my case without the use of a dremel. The CM Storm Scout supports up to 10.6" cards, but the reference cards are 10.8". So it's close, but not good enough. I'm hoping there will be some non-reference that might just barely fit.
