Lol, yup. Bezel haters came in fast and hard when you post pics of multi monitors. As you said, the car's pillars disappear as you get accustomed to the field of view.

Well, no more gaming for a bit as I'm going to start breaking down my loop. New tube and fittings are going in smile.gif

Wermads setup is wicked... but trying to jump on the 1440 bandwagon for ages but he's not biting!

Lets have another go:

Ugh, too many hassles to deal with the K-monitors. Biggest gripe is having dead pixels. Was gonna get some Qnix or Xstar, but stupid retailers raised the prices as soon as demand went up. Plus I'll need a stand or get the Blade versions. If I'm gonna go Eyefinity/Surround, it has to be portrait biggrin.gif

I love Portrait eyefinity as well. That said, 4k surround/eyefinity when it becomes more viable if ever smile.gif is actually not to bad in landscape either. You have a wider vertical view and it doesn't feel nearly confined as 1080p vertical.

Your 5 portrait setup is really awesome, and King4x4 as well. I am a huge sucker for eyefinity and surround. I cannot get over the expanded FOV it gives.

it's funny when i first saw eyefinity someone posted i was a hater. I was making jokes about how their pixels looked like they were in jail. Then i ended up with 3 1080p monitors and setup surround. Never looked back. Even with all the aggravation of Widescreen fixers, and FOV issues, UI scaling it's worth it to me now. When i try to play or use a single monitor i feel like a horse with blinders on.

16:10 seems more appealing. Would like to get 5x1 30" 2560x1600 dells if 4k doesn't pan out biggrin.gif.

Well, I'm stuck with the dreaded mouse cursor bug on BF3 and I got tired of trying to fix it. I hate it when something updates and it just gets screwed rolleyes.gifmad.giffrown.gif.

Anyways, good opportunity to finally launch BF4. Loving it so far and its not dragging in the cut-scenes like BF3. No bugs and everything works fine. If I leave it in high settings, I get ~80-90fps. Though dropping it to medium gets me ~120fps and i find it more fluid (less vertical sync issues).

Wish I knew how to take those in game videos to load on YouTube.

I would like to ask a question and you guys seem like people that would be able to answer it.

Is it possible to run a 3 monitor set up off a single R9 290(x) with one of the MST hubs?

A bit of background:
I am, or rather was, running a 3 monitor, portrait setup from a single R9 280x. It was one of the few cards available at that time that had 4 normal Displayport connectors. The reason for wanting those same type connectors is the terrible tearing that is the trademark for AMD and portrait setups over different connection types.

Unfortunately the card died on me sometime this week. After close to 6 months of doing a great job, it is still working, kind of, but there's random crashes and blue screens whenever it does anything more than basic graphics. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Anyway. I started to look around for a replacement card, because the shop doesn't have my current card in stock anymore.
Upgrading to a R9 290x might be an option, but there are no R9 290(x) cards with 3+ Displayport connections that i know of. (anyone?)

In this forum i saw some rigs using the MST hub. Which led me to the question above.
If it is possible,then I could get a MST hub and just use the one Displayport on any R9 290x to drive my three monitors.

If anyone knows, could you let me know?

Cheers,
Djelli.

Btw: I really like some of the rigs you guys have made thumb.gif I will make a picture of my machine, and post it here when i get it working again.
post #3368 of 3943
well, I have been posting in this thread for a while, and despite not having the set up 100%, I would share what I have so far. So this is an official unofficial entry into the eyefinity club.

OCN name: inedenimadam
GPU: 2x 7970
Monitors: 3x 23.1" AOC IPS
Resolution: 6296 x 1152 @ 68hz

The monitors have been debezeled and are currently mounted on a temporary custom wood platform. So far I have gotten my monitor to wood interface worked out, the angle is comfortable for viewing, the height is perfect. There is a little bit more work to go from where it is now to where I will be completely satisfied, but I have hit the goal of having a clean desk space with no cable octopus monster. My desk is not a particularly huge desk, so not having the monitors and stands sitting on them is a huge plus for me, as I need the space for any of the 23940837250439582 woodworking projects I may having going at any one time.

the 290-290x have 3 display scalars (are they named like that?) built-in so you can use all three DVI DVI HDMI with no issues and skip the DP port.

I am going to test this in a bit, i didn't realize that was the case. I've been using my DP port because i thought for sure only 2 ports of DVI/HDMI could be used and 3rd DP?

if this is true then i may drop the DP connection and do dvi/dvi/hdmi
