i cant use CRTs because they hurt my eyes like crazy. I do have senstive eyes to the point that I thought of getting gunnars.

CRT: smoothnes, 2048x1536 4:3. wink.gif LCD: 1920x1080, 120Hz, And ONLY NOW 1ms responde time like CRT(nVidia LightBoost2 hack)!
Ok we have 1440 @ 120Hz screens

I dont say my 1440p setup is bad. But CRT is thinks. What hopeful come my 1440p screens. LCD technology is almost reaching CRT smoothness. But when is done, still in future biggrin.gif

Post a screenshot so we can look at what 12-25 years ago looks like! tongue.gif

that ole lcd I converted from crt looked something like this. NEVER looked back!


Hey man quit the hate. Besides it being larger and heavier than your LCD it's still better in every single conceivable way. Better colors, infinitely better contrast, better response times, and probably better refresh rates (I can do 1080p @ 100hz for 3D, 1600x1200 @ 95hz for desktop, and 2048x1536 @ 75hz for gaming). All for $40 BRAND-NEW like a year ago.

So diss on my CRT all you want because it's still better than your LCD besides the size and weight. Which doesn't matter to me considering I don't travel with it and my desk is 6x3 feet.

However, this isn't a LCD vs. CRT thread so I'll leave it alone. thumb.gif

Oh here's a picture:

I am not "hating" in anyway people can have what they want, and I disagree with them looking better. but as that is your opinion, this is mine. I still remember the wow factor of switching to my first lcd over gigantic samsung I had. never again!

Each tech has its own merits, still prefer the blacks on CRT over anything, my new plasma panel from last year is one of the top tiers and its just barely getting there sitting 7-8 feet away, my C-PVA F2380 has the color accuracy and blacks but not the response time as figured

Now see my CRT can do 1080p and 1200p as well. All I have to do is adjust screen size some, but it works perfectly.

I can also do 1080p @ 100hz and 1600x900 at 120hz. I use 1080p @ 100hz for 3D using Nvidia 3D Vision. Now granted 1080p is equivalent to a 17 inch monitor but it works! biggrin.gif

Really waiting for OLED before I upgrade...can't give up my contrast! PVA is decent with blacks, granted, but everything else not so much...

Question folks.

 

Can I get 2 21 inch monitors and place them as portrait than game in Surround?

 

What kind of a resolution would that be?

post #2048 of 6172
How does surround work on 600 series? I know previously it was you needed two cards and three displays.

Edit: High-end CRTs can rival the colour reproduction and accuracy of IPS and VA panels; reson many design professionals still prefer their CRTs over newer tech.

depends on what type of monitors and inputs, but here. http://www.geforce.com/optimize/guides/how-to-correctly-configure-geforce-gtx-680-surround#1

basically all can go in 1 card now. in my case, I have to use both dvi ports on 1 670 and 1 dvi port on 2nd 670 because my monitor only has dl-dvi.
