This is my current set up. The middle and left monitors are qnix's. The right one is an older aoc I'm using, thats just acting as a place holder until my third qnix comes this week.



Pic from catalyst control center/amd vision or whatever they're calling it these days tongue.gif. This is only the middle monitor. The left one is just running at 60hz.



My one bridge video cards
Sorry for the crappy pics, all I have is a cell phone camera.

Thanks! So I just did a search and found some posts that the second bridge is unnecessarily and might even cause more problems. I also found that 2 bridges were more common on older cards. I guess I'll just have to hope that it works, if not I'll need to sell the cards and get something else redface.gif

*Just realized how many replied to your questions, oh well more information the merrier! thumb.gif *

Hehe thanks, that fall off the wall was a funny question. I'll put my macbook in front off me, curious, I never use it on my desk.
Argh hope I can prove you guys wrong with the second bridge, it works for brightbus so fingers crossed!!

I think i read somewhere that it caused trouble but not sure what and how.

I use Flux and have noticed zero problems. It works like it should. Even when OCed to 96hz..

Medium-High. And as for using V-sync, I would only to see if it caps to 96hz, but I personally would have it off for multiplayer.

so with the stock DVI cable you more likely get to 96hz?
To buy a better cable what i need to look for?

First is at 100% brightness, 30 clicks



Second at 50% brightness, 15 clicks

I would love it if I could get that little of BLB. I would live with it perfectly content. Mine should arrive tomorrow

Don't know who said it would cause more problems..
For me some games will not load with one bridge. With one bridge its a little laggy. With two bridges everything is normal. With two 78xx cards it might be different than 79xx cards I think there is a limit to how much pixel clock can be pushed out of the bridge and with 78xx it might not be trying to push as much thru the bridge. So you will have to test and see for yourself.

You want a good 24AWG CL2 Dual Link DVI-D Cable like this..But i have a 24awg monoprice cable that came with my monoprice monitor and there is no difference between that and my qnix cable..They both hit 12ohz no problem.But each case is different..
