Decided to go with these for Eyefinity, What you think?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I almost bought these Viewsonic VX2439wm's at Frys today, but after I did a brain check and the guy trying to sell me a $110 Accell Active display adapter and another $40 DVi cable for it I decided to see if Tiger Direct has them. They did and for $20 less plus shipping is only 23 and no tax. Frys was going to charge me $912 for everything, and Tiger Direct will be around 670 for the monitors and the $27 Power Color and this DVI D cable. Does all of this look like what I need? I am not sure about the resolution support. The adapter supports 1900x1200. Is that good enough for Eyefinity? I know the $110 Accell adapter FRY's wanted to sell me supports 2560x1600. IS it really worth the extra money with these monitors?

I was going to go with some ACER H245H's bu they have no HDMI and no audio inputs. The Viewsonic does.

from my understanding you don't need $110 accell adapter for that solution.
Just buy something like this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-030-_-Product

it's cheaper and supports your eye finity set up.

Ya it was a bit shocking when the guy at frys told me that I needed a 110 buck adapter.

What do yu think about the monitors? I am also going back and forth and the Asus VW246H. They seem pretty similar but may have better reliability I dont know. I am so damn confused.

You'll have so many options. I would try to get thin bezel for good eye finity effect.

Ya the Viewsonic is fairly thin I think. It is about the same as the acer G235 I saw there as well.
