Eyefinity

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
What is the point of it? So I bout the 5870 Eyefinity when it was on sale at craigslist not really knowing anything about it except that it was a good sale and cheap. So is Eyefinity better than just a larger screen? Now I only have one tiny little monitor but if and when I upgrade should I be upgrading to more than 1 monitor or just a giant monitor?

i use the nvidia equivalent and for the games that can fully utilize the peripheral vision it is amazing! however certain games like SC2 and others don't allow it when playing competitively online. If you can do it cheaply, i would recommend trying it!

Resolution and diagonal are not equivalent. That is the short answer.

What to use depends on your setup, and what you're wanting to do.

the FoV in something like skyrim will be a huge advantage! seeing 3 times the world in front of you is a definite game changer. just youtube some videos related to eyefinity and hopefully that will help

It's entirely opinion.
Some people will prefer multiple screens while others prefer one big screen.

Multimonitor helps a lot in productivity.

Bezels aren't as bad as people say it is.
It's just something you get used to in the matter of a week.

I actually like having bezels, it gives me a feeling that each screen is unique.
