Eyefinity

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
hey guys i need your advice. i currently have a Acer AL1916W and want to do eyefinity. i was wondering if i were to get 2 more monitors does the resolution matter? this one is 1440x900 other one is 1366x768. or should i just get one with the same resolution. also if the screen is like a 20 inch would it be a noticible difference? thanks

Now, I've been in both cases. Had a 18" 1280x1024 and an 15" 1024x768. It's weird but doable. Try to maintain resolution, and as long as the sizes are relatively close, you won't notice a difference.

Do it right, man. If the monitors aren't the same size, resolution, and refresh rate it's just not worth it. Also, a thin bezel is a pretty important aesthetic feature.

Yup.

OP, do your BEST to get identical panels. Down to serial numbers identical. Anything less and it is hit or miss if bezel compensation can be enabled. And, yes, Catalyst can tell if your panels are anything less than identical.
