Triple Screen with different refresh rates (1x 120hz and 2x 60hz)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Noob to triple monitors here....Is it possible? I dont have the money for two more 120hz panels for triple screen; but maybe i could afford two 60hz panels ?

I have an ASUS VG278HE. Plan on getting maybe the VS (60hz) monitors on the sides; could i do that?

yes it is possible.

 

There are people that does surround with your setup.

 

All monitors will be 60hz though.

I remember moderator Achilee5 has/had a similar setup to yours.

As far as I remember from Achilee5 's setup he had to set all of them to 60hz. 99.9% sure.

-- For proper full screen surround gaming, YES.
-- For regular Windows use, you can have different refresh rates, but windowed videogames will run at the refresh rate of your lowest-refresh-rate monitor.

Oh. I had a feeling about that since the resolution is all combined. Thanks. thumb.gif
