Well if you make a display profile (or is that just amd?) for surround you can disable it for single monitor play and have the fourth monitor be the 'primary' monitor so games would maximize to it.
Put it on an adjacent desk with an identical mouse and keyboard and just leave them plugged in all the time. the HD650 have a ten foot cord too tongue.gif

I am toying around with the idea of two different systems more or less to have the best of both worlds. The single FW900/GPU for awesome FPS in which it's best to have everything central vision with instant response and no lag, and a second system where lag/motion blur isn't that big of a deal for games like Guild Wars 2.

My desk is big enough to actually support both setups lol. Been looking into those 27" 1440P IPS catleap monitors that you can overclock to 100-120Hz. If I wanted to go real big, I could get five of those for portrait and de-bezel them. That would limit me to AMD though for that particular system, and the 7990 to boot. Stupidly the 6GB cards that still haven't appeared wouldn't even have the necessary outputs for a five monitor setup. The 7990 releasing in July will be the only card to have the ports to do it properly. (4x DP and 1x Dual Link DVI).

The good thing about the IPS screens is with the 5x1 setup I wouldn't run into the viewing angle problems that I had experienced on my previous 120 Hz portrait TN setup. The issue I will run into is that I would need 4x DP->DVI adapters that run at a max of 330 MHz. So that means the monitor's would run at 89 Hz max. Still, that is quite a nice bump up from 60 Hz. Around 90 Hz the pixel response time on those non-overdrive catleap's matches up with that refresh rate. Another large issue with AMD is how will Eyefinity deal/handle those custom refresh rates? Has anyone ever seen anyone run at least three catleap's in Eyefinity at the higher refresh rate?

So the setup would be 7200x2560 resolution, or a gargantuan 18.4 million pixels! Another issue would be; would the 3GB VRAM on the 7990 be a limit? How far would I need to turn settings down? I think I would be alright in most games. Guild Wars 2 didn't use much VRAM at all in my testing. With my Rampage IV Extreme and two water cooled 7990's, they would have their own 16x PCI-E 3.0 slot to swap those massive frames in Quad-Fire.

Thoughts?

You could go with 4 6gb 7970s.

Take a look at my post again. wink.gif

Really stupid output config IMO:

Even in the article you can read them scolding for the lack of proper outputs to do large Eyefinity setups (which is the sole reason anyone would ever bother with a 6GB GPU) mad.gif:

Can't you plug in displays to multiple cards and have it work? Ah, de-zant is here, he will tell.

All the displays in a single display group must be connected to a single card. This is why the connectors on the 6gb card above is such an issue here.

not with ati they still run everything thru one card meaning all data goes thru the pci bus and crossfire bridge.

nvidia i believe just confronted that problem with the 680's and with nvsurround you can hook into multiple cards.

I think at this point you have just become obsessed with the build and not the result tongue.gif

IMHO; you have the best possible setup right now with the FW900s. If you really want a single monitor CRT setup get another one and take the fourth (or fifth for crying out loud tongue.gif) 680 from your current setup and throw it on another board with Ivy and fast ram. Maybe you should build a case, leave the monitors alone for a bit and get into modding and you will end up with a whole ton less money spent to satisfy your desire to build something epic lol smile.gif.
