Nice, I'm playing COD 2 in surround in its really great. Not much pushing my setup but I love these wwii shooters. We should head over to the surround gaming thread to discuss more surround gaming goodness.

Played cod 2 for five hours straight. Got a little motion sickness and called it quits for the night. Still kinda playing around with bezel correction and the left screen's color (still a bit dark but this seems common, )

the reviewer on newegg possibly didnt use all the same connectors, i.e DVI, when connecting all three monitors, or maybe he was trying to use only a single card..

Cheers,

Ok cool. Using the DVI cables that come with the monitors should be sufficient right? Meaning I won't have to go out and get anything extra to run this Surround setup? Thanks for the help/response.

Yes.

NVSurround requires that all monitors are connected using the same connection. i.e DVI

Whereas Eyefinity allows you to mix and match connectors.

I notice that you only have a single 580 3gb in your sigrig, you will need a second to run 2D surround, you will need tri-sli to run 3d surround (correct me if im wrong, but you need 2 connections per monitor, which would equate to 3 x 2 DVI port cards.)

Unless I'm seriously mistaken, 3D Vision requires dual-link DVI, but that is just a double-the-bandwidth 'normal' DVI setup (ports must be dual-link aware, and cable must be of higher standard than normal single link cables. Much like 2560x1600 monitors, which need dual-link DVI, but only use a single cable.

edit: I'm correct. A single cable to each monitor is sufficient, but they must be dual-link DVI. The required cables should come with 120Hz monitors.

edit 2:

If I don't get the bezel correction just right, it makes me so queasy when gaming. Like, run-to-the-toilet-pronto-want-to-throw-up queasy. Even being a couple of pixels off does it.

I can't get my monitors all the same colour anyway, as the centre one is different to the two sides. They're 'close enough' that it doesn't annoy me in games, though... although it drives me totally nuts when I'm trying to do photo-editing. I have a feeling a high-gamut 2560x1600 screen will soon be on my shopping list for my single-screen system, so I can use that for photo work.

Yeah I just got the Lightning, coming off of a Asus DCII 580. Got the Lightning specifically for Surround, and will add another within the next month or so. Just wanted to make sure I had my information lined up correctly before making the leap. The guy on newegg worried me a bit.

Thanks for the help!

I was on the verge of just throwing up and I finished the first campaign so I called it quits. The heatwave were experiencing () is not helping either. My left monitor is a bit dark and if you tilt slightly it does help but not facing the center screen directly. I'm going to switch them around and then start playing around with the color adjustments. I also have a modified monitor stand, thus its not perfect and could be lending to the motion sickness (I'll be picking up an ergotech one when I get my tax refund next year).

gaming on dual screens would put the centre of your view between the two monitors, not ideal.
