Weird.

I guess it's just that the card can power 30fps (I saw it dip to 29fps) but can't manage more. VRAM usage is ~1300MB. I imagine I could improve it by turning settings down, but why would I want to do that? wink.gif

Was playing Burnout Paradise again in Surround - this is the only card I've tested (admittedly, I've not tested loads and loads) that can cope with SSAO on in Surround, with 8xAA. 45fps. I think that's pretty good!

3 Asus VS248H's or 2 Catleaps? With the Asus's it'd be nice to know I'm safe from dead pixels and backlight bleed but dang, that 1440p is tempting drool.gif

Haha, since you are posting in the Surround forum, that's easy. wink.gif Three Catleaps!!! devil.gif

If only I could afford it tongue.gif And I'd need at least one more 680 to run that resolution wink.gif

Haha, at that resolution, I think you would probably be hurting for at least Tri-SLI, if not Quad-SLI, as is my exact goal for this summer. eek.gif

Joking aside, both setups have close to the same amount of overall pixels (with the two Catleaps having a bit more), however, the Asus setup will allow you to game in Surround whereas with the two Catleaps, you can only game on one monitor or the other. Aside from gaming though, it may also come down to what else you may want to use your monitors for to warrant the large desktop space.

What do you value more? Higher quality panels with dense pixels and a taller resolution, or wider resolution for Surround gaming?

That's all very true, and I think I'd rather have wider for gaming. So Catleaps are off the list. How much does response time really matter? If 8ms won't feel much slower than my current 2ms monitor, I might nab three of these when they're on sale.

Response times... I don't really have an answer. tongue.gif Much of my gaming over the last few years has all been on various VA based panels (both P-MVA and S-PVA) with "higher than normal" response times, but I (still) do not have any issues with any of them. To me, as long as I don't see ghosting, it's good to go. biggrin.gif

Coincidentally, I *did* notice some ghosting with my Achieva Shimian monitor when I first used it. The longer I used it, though, the less ghosting I saw/noticed, which may have to do with breaking it in. However, it still is there (albeit very slightly), not that it matters anyway since it is no longer being considered. wink.gif

Frankly, many of the "2ms" panels are lying through their back teeth about their response time. In fact, quite a number of 'gaming' monitors quote response times that are guesstimates at best and outright lies at worst. It's called marketing and for some reason they're allowed to get away with it. I'm gaming quite happily on a U2410 (no idea what response time, I forget) and two 2405s (which IIRC had a response time of 16ms...) although the ghosting exhibited by my ultraportable and an older TFT I've inherited at work drive me to distraction.

nVidia finally updated their site to reflect the fact that the 680 can cope with 1600p/1440p monitors in Surround. I'm presuming that that would have to utilise HDMI+duallink-DVI+DisPort if using one card, as one of the DVI ports is single link and will take one look at a 1600p display and tell you to get lost. wink.gif

hey guys... looking at entering the world of surround gaming... just purchased 2 extra Dell U2711's to add to my existing 1 and now i'm on the hunt for a GPU setup to run things... mainly play racing games and MMO's along with the occasional FPS and will be hitting up diablo 3 quite a bit when its out...

currently running a single Gigabyte GTX470 SuperOC model w/ a slightly o/c'd i7 920 and various other bits and pieces... so far i'm thinking i have 3 options...

1. find another 470 superoc (i have found one actually and for a reasonable price!)
2. replace the 470 with a 680 (ideally 2 i guess but would rather not with pricing as it is right now)
3. replace the 470 with 2 x 3gb 580's (it seems the more vram the better for surround? especially if i'm going to try and push 7680x1440 resolution)

thoughts? comments? suggestions?

thanks!
