Will games run on Ultra settings with a Surround Setup? BENQ XL2420T's

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

I was curious if I used 3 BENQ XL2420T monitors in 2D Surround, will my games still run in Ultra settings? Or would I need to SLI?

Thinking of having a BENQ XL2420TX in the center and rest will be regular XL2420T.

Also anyone who has this setup already, please chime in on your experience. I read reviews that the viewing angles are bad, has this been a nuisance when playing games in surround?

- I7 2600k 3.4Ghz
- 32GB DDR3
- Zotac GTX 680
- ASUS P8Z77V Deluxe Mobo

Thanks
:)

You will need more than two cards for a few reasons. 1. 680's have yet to get the mdt tech. Google mdt nvidia if you do not know what it is. 2. Those monitors are 120hz, a.k.a. 120fps. at 1920/1080, that is a huge amount of pixels to fill, esp considering 120fps. 3. your question is vague, as you have not mentioned what games you are playing, and if they even have sli support, and if they do, what kind of support the drivers will allow. Meaning this, even if you had 5 680's running, with 2 980x's and 64gb of ram, if the support is not in the drivers, or the games, you will still only be allowed to use one monitor, and even some games, its even impossible to go over 30fps caps.

Its not unreasonable to say its possible to play on ultra, just a really lofty ambition.

Thanks for the reply, I was thinking of running bf3 and diablo 3 in ultra settings. Right now the game is running flawlessly. I guess if the game doesn't run so well with the surround setup, I can temporarily disable the surround and wait for the new GTX to sli smile.gif

Yes, of course. With there being rumor of a dual gk104 chip around the corner, maybe you will even be able to use it with your single 680 for three gpus and get much closer to your goal.

The forum has a subforum specificly for displays here http://www.overclock.net/f/44/monitors-and-displays. As for your questions about the monitors, I would take there there if I were you. Lurking the threads you may even find your answer with out having to open another topic.

Diablo 3 on 3 monitors sounds like the most pointless thing ever or am I missing something!?
