Dual monitor gaming with 1920x1200+1440x900

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So for some reason, I thought I'd try hooking up my 19" monitor to my computer to compare IPS to TN. After a while, I started experimenting. Now I'm trying gaming over both of them . I just alt tab the gmae, and stretch the window across the two screens. Since the 19" has a bigger pixel to size ratio though, it's kind of weird because the games on either monitor don't match up. It helps me see if a triple monitor setup would be worth it though, and I think it would be awesome! I have noticed that in games like dirt 2, the bezel isn't annoying at all. after a couple seconds, it's like it's not even there. Tell if if you want pics .

I just was doing this with a 1600x900 20" monitor laying around, except it's paired with a 27" 1080p.

The most awesome thing I've encountered is using the other screen for a VM.
Almost identical to having 2 PC's while easily sharing the KB/mouse..

Well first off if you want to game over multiple monitors it is best done with 3 screens at the same resolution. Now since you are using an Nvidia card you would have to have 2 of them in SLI to be able to run the NVIDIA 3d Surround
