How do I set up 1x 2560x1440 & 2x 900x1440 ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Thinking about buying two 1440x900 resolution monitors and putting them on each side of my Dell U2711, giving me a resolution of 4360x1440.

I was wondering if its just a matter of plugging them in to my card(s) and then the computer will automaticly see what I am trying to do, or do I need to configure some settings or something?

Thx in advance smile.gif

When you plug them in, go to either your catalyst control center or windows display settings and then place the two 1440x900 monitors on the correct sides of the 2560* model, choose to extend desktop to the two side displays, then choose to rotate them in portrait mode. (the interface is pretty self explanatory there) All good to go. For the desktop that is. You won't get a combined resolution of them for gaming. That isn't supported.

It isnt?! not in any games at all?

Cant windows get tricked to think that it is one Monitor with a huge resolution?

No, few games can accomplish this. I'm only aware of DAO, JC2 and codemasters games working in windowed mode (though I'm sure many others do this, it's only a minorty that can do that). Aside from that, softTH can accomplish that but you're limited to DX9. wink.gif
