But you see, eyefinity will work pretty much on any combination of monitors.

I can have a 1920x1080 one, a 1280x1024 one, and a 800x600 one. All monitors will be set to the resolution of the monitor with the lowest native resolution. In this case, 800x600. Doesn't cause issues in games. Desktop usage though might suffer from the blurry image resulting from unnative resolutions.

It *can*-but it is a wildcard.

I'm running two Acer panels and a Dell....but the resolution/diagonal is identical, and the bezel size is within a milimeter of being the same...I got BC through the Windows Resolution context menu by accidental discovery...Catalyst wouldn't have it.

1) 6950 good option for eyefinity even if you don't unlock it to 6970...

2) specs on your psu would help, I recommend 650w either way..

3) Catalyst Control Center makes it pretty easy, just make a group 3x1 and your good to go.

4) Most games will run in eyefinity if it's supported or not, tho if it's not natively supported in the game there will be some distortion in the image, ie. stretching etc....most noticeable in the newest Kane and Able game, made the characters look like they were 300+ lbs....also in DC Universe the name plates above characters is stretched.. tho WoW looks great, BFBC2 as well, SplinterCell was amazing in eyefinity.....NFS Shift looked ok...

Yes...I remember reading somewhere that so long as the bezel size is within a certain very small percentage it would work. But if it won't flashing the EDID is the only way.

Interesting. I thought you couldn't use Eyefinity in games when using different resolutions. Well from what I read, thanks for clearing that up.

It will have to be 3x the same resolution for you to use eyefinity. But if all the monitors can support ANY SINGLE OFFICIAL resolution, they can eyefinity. All monitors will use the highest resolution that the monitor with the lowest resolution can achieve

I have 1920x1080 and a 1280x1024. If I go eyefinity, It'll be 2x 1280x1024, since my secondary can't do anything higher
