tri-sli 470 and 2D surround - Page 2

post #11 of 37
Yes, a person in my clan has tri sli and 5 monitors.
His profile is on public so i assume it's safe to post his steam community page
http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198015901898

His profile says "MW2 Running on Five screens resolution is 6400x1024=6553600 pixels "

Mobo x58 i7 920 O/C 4.2Ghz 6gb Mem 2000Mhz Tri SLi GTX480's



EDIT: I thought this was 5 monitor OP was asking about not 3.

The reason i was considering the p2350 was i could get 2 for about $320 with CA tax and shipping. But with the current one that my GF uses the colors are on the dull side but the performance is (for the most part) just fine

Edits: what about something like this?
Yes, the above LG monitor has IPS panel.
Also, this Dell U2311H also has IPS panel and supports VESA and has thinner bezel.

ooooo, that dell does look good and has a pretty nice bezel .. i like how the buttons dont specify one orientation too .. gahhh.. Maybe i can get one IPS and one more p2350 (since i already have one) and us the p2350s as the side monitors and the ips in the middle? .. hmm..

Edit: by any chance would you know if the $269 price is a limited time thing? or is that the typical dell price? .. might buy one this month and another next month..

It would be better if you put IPS-panel monitor as side monitors as their viewing angle is better (as they are slightly out of your normal front view) and colour fades not much on your peripheral.

Of course, preferably you have 3 identical IPS monitors to avoid colour variation across them.

Yeah you really don't want to mix IPS and TN panels. Go all one or the other. IPS panels have very high color accuracy, so mixing them with TNs for a surround setup will cause very noticeable color shifts.

IDK how much you're looking to spend, but if you catch a good deal on the U2311H you can get 3 for anywhere between $600-$750. Considering the fact that you will be VRAM limited though, you might want to look at the U2211H instead.

They're still 1080p, but they're smaller and have a slightly finer pixel pitch, so jaggies won't be quite as noticeable without AA enabled. Oh and they're cheaper too .

Sorry ignore my post and PM i realised this is just standard 3 monitor not 5. Tri SLI 470s will max anything out for the next year and a half,i guess.

thanks guys! hmm well for sure sounds like by default i shold be going one or the other.. =\\ but anyways ill have to give it some thought, i was planning on spending ~$300 or so, but looks like if i do want IPS i might have to go $6-700, which im not 100% sure is in my immediate budget *sigh* im thinking that maybe ill go IPS and get 1 monitor every 5 weeks or so my gf gave me a computer budget of $100-300 a month so gotta work within that -__-

Talking about prices....I just clicked into Dell and found that they have already raised the price of U2311 from $269 to $319. Just a few hours and such a big jump! But Dell monitors always have this kind of fluctuation. So, you just have the patience to keep checking them daily.

BTW, you need to click the Rep+ icon of my posts #8 and #14 and OK them. And do the same to the other members whom you want to rep. Or else, the system does not register your reps.

Ya, Dell monitors are normally always on sale. I'd check back every Monday . They normally drop the prices $50-$60 on select monitors.

I was really looking into picking up two more 470's (so cheap atm ), and going surround vision again. You should be able to max out most games, aside from a couple where you need to turn the detail down a small bit.
post #20 of 37
OP, at that resolution maybe consider stepping up two of the 470s to 580s and selling off the last 470 and the 465. Tri 470s is slightly better than SLI 580s, but the increased memory on the 580s will likely come into play for surround.

It actually looks to be the cheapest route for you. Since it would be just a little more than stepping up three cards, but you'd have two cards left over to sell. And with 580s, there wouldn't be any need of a PhysX card. It'd also significantly lower your power draw, saving you a couple bucks a month on electricity

Finally, you'd be able to upgrade past it (3x SLI), rather than having to replace all 4 cards to see an improvement.

How long do you have left on Step-Up? I'd consider waiting until the last minute in case EVGA does a 3GB 580. Sadly, it doesn't look like the HydroCopper 580s are available through step-up to help with your water cooling though.
