I had a q9550 oc to 4.2 and my cards would not pass 50% usage unless i turned everything way up in bc2.

Did you see a performance increase in game after getting the i7?

But I can not activate Eyefinity can only use two monitors.
I do not know if the problem is but use crossfire of 5770!
What resolutions can with this adapter?

That's because it's not an Eyefinity certified adapter. You want this model: B087B-005B. They're not perfect but they are only 30 bucks, shrugs.

Oh hell yea man! I was very skeptical about upgrading because one I loved my q9550 and at 4.2 i thought it was a screamer. Basicly I was in denial that it couldnt handle my 6850s in crossfire. But in reality it couldnt. Once I upgraded my frame rates jumped through the roof.

Sometimes in really populated servers I find out that my 950 is bottle necking my cards by 15% no where near the 60% q9550 was doing. But Im still stock on the 950 as I havent ironed out everything when ocing yet. But the new sandy bridge is even faster. And its only about 20$ more than the 950. Hell of a deal. If you have the funds I say jump on it.

itcrashed that is a sick ass setup!

I just purchased 3x20" LED monitors from Acer. Kind of skeptical on their quality as acer is lower end in my book. I always stucks with samsung. Also how do you like the res of 4800x900? Coming from 1920x1080 Im kinda feeling that the vertical res will feel shrunk down.

Any thoughts on this?

In windows, the vertical resolution might be missed.

In games, you don't lose any vertical field of vision. EVERY resolution sees the same vertically, so you will see as much as your previous 1080p setup. The only downside is that games are blurrier because of the low resolution

4800x900 sounds good

I went with Acer 19" because Staples had a promo and I got them for $65 each!!! Being that these were going to be for dedicated use, I didn't mind the "lower quality" picture. 4800x900 is a perfect blend of performance and resolution IMHO. I am still able to max out all graphics settings on all games (with the exception of Metro 2033) and get very good frame rates. CF certainly helps!

Indeed, the games "seem" a hair blurrier, but take that with a grain of salt as my daily monitor is an Apple 27" 2560x1440.

That's not how it works. Generally speaking, your cards shouldn't be hitting high percent usage rates unless you're running some kind of gpu stress test. Granted a 9550 might be a bottleneck for xfire 6870's but the difference would be negligible at best.

first, this is my first post in here (sorry for my poor english, i'm from indonesia)
i've got something to ask to all of u,

I have plans to make with 2 screen monitors only, it's only LG with 17" (square)
so the total resolution is 2560x1024. is this work for eyefinity?
why i choose square? this because i already have one..
I'm just a student,so i haven't a big budget ,
o ya, i just use sapphire HD 5770 Flex..
thx for d response guys smile.gif

2 monitor gaming sucks. The point of focus in every game is in the center and there is a bezel there. So you can't see anything. 3x 1280x1024 would work fine though.
