Triple display - Different monitor size?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I just ordered a Crossover 30q5 pro which is 30" running 2560x1600.

The only reason I bought the 30" (16:10) over the 27" (16:9) is because I'd like to have the option to triple monitor in game (eyefinity and the like). I already have two samsung monitor 16:10, one is 26" and the other 24".

Will all these three 16:10 monitor be able to run triple display 5670x1200?

Even better would, would that 16:9 monitor be able to triple display with the 2 16:10 using letterbox resolution 5670x1080?

I guess I could still modify my order to the crossover 27q if I do it quickly.

It will work, 3 different sizes, but it will look strange..jmo
Why not pick up another Samsung 24" and put 26" in middle.
It will look better, and will be better on your eyes... jmo thumb.gif

Well 16:10 monitor are almost non-existent anymore and the few left are more expansive then their 16:9 counterpart. The way I see it, if I'm gonna spend 200~500$ on a monitor, might as well go for something worth it aka 2560x resolution

Do not skimp on eyefinity.

Couple of things I learned:

You want to get 3 of the same monitor at around the same manufacture date. You are also going to want the thinnest bezels available or diy remove them. Make sure they're ips or have a high viewing angle.

Can you do what you're asking? Ya. But I wouldn't suggest it.

Ya I almost bought 3x Asus mx279h since they are the thinest bezel I could find. But if I was going to spend 600$~900$, for that money getting 2560x1600 resolution felt more like a priority for me than having the perfect triple display setup, especially since I already do have 2 monitor.

Just remember that a 7680 x 1600 setup will require a HUGE amount of GPU 'horsepower.' And I mean HUGE! The top review sites don't even benchmark that high, they tend to stop at 5760 x 1200, however, don't let this detour you from 3 x 30" bliss.
