Eyefinity/surround opinions.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Going to (hopefully) be putting together a new machine when Haswell comes around, I mostly play Arma 2, and soon to be Arma 3. My intent is to go for 3 monitors, and make good use of TrackIR.

This will be my first foray into eyefinity/surround setups, so I'm asking for some dos and don'ts, or experiences some of you have had with 3 monitor gaming (bonus points if you use it for milsim/flightsim)

Wasn't sure how to word the question, but you get the idea.

From my experience:
If you just want to bathe in the glory of three screens, go for it.
If you want to play competitively, don't get three.
Do not get screens of different resolution. Even if you can scale them down or up.

Get LOTS OF VRAM. For 1080p you should have at least 3gb vram.

I don't play competitively per say, but constantly looking to my left and right in large scale operations, I think the situational awareness provided by peripheral vision, would be worth it. If I'm going big, might as well go all the way.

Thanks for the input.
