Is it possible to run three displays at different resolutions?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am considering getting a large 27" 2560x1440 monitor but would not like to pay for an extra two for the outside monitors.
Would it be possible to run a 2560x1440 monitor in the middle with two 1080p monitors on the side?
Oh and this is for gaming. smile.gif
Thanks.

Well are you trying to use Eyefinity or just using multi-monitor for desktop use?

You can have different res monitors but not for gaming. You could have the two on the side for anything and just game on the main 1440 monitor.
