Today I made the jump. I acquired an additional monitor, Crysis 3, and Bioshock Infinite, and a new gpu. Not hooked up yet but when I get home I'm going to geek out on my pc for a while.
Screenshots will be provided after setup is complete. Anyone here have experience?
I played GW2 with a trip monitor setup. It was fun.
Did you get used to the bezels? And did you position your setup farther from you?
I wish I had the space to do this.....but I'd still have to convince the wife.
Are there lots of FPS that support this setup?
Bioshock Infinite and Crysis 3 both support these resolutions. You can achieve 3 monitor resoulution with Planetside 2 but it fucks up your aspect ratio and you lose like 30% of your lower screen. There may be a fix but atm I dont think PS2 supports it?
Here are some screenshots of Bioshock that I took on my first play-through.
After playing this one game with this resolution I will never be able to go back to single/dual monitor. This is awesome.

The only way to do triple monitor gaming is with three vertices monitors.

Really? Im running 3x 24" VS247 's off one 660ti. Its 1920x1080 though.
2 cards cant support that?
I think he means he wouldn't be able to power games at 7680x1440 with just two 670s, and he probably wouldn't, at least not on high visual settings. It'll power a desktop that big no problem, as long as you're still only gaming on one(or maybe 2) of them.
I have 2 1920x1200 monitors with a 3GB 660Ti, and I can't really run anything across both monitors at decent speeds, unless all graphic settings are medium to low. Skyrim or Far Cry 3 at ulta settings get about 10-15 FPS spanned across both monitors :/
3 1440p monitors would take a lot of horsepower to game at good levels. 7680 x 1440 is over 5 times the resolution of a standard 1920x1080 monitor.
Yea I suppose I would have thought 2x cards could support almost anything you throw at them. I'm running games at high graphics (see 3 posts up) but my resolution would be 4x less.
Remember this go to widescreengaming.org or com can't remember which and down load widescreen fixer as the guys there hack the ini files so games like COD series and Mass Effects series can be played in trip monitor format.
Sadly my trip monitor were put away due to many issues most game related like waiting for the hack ini files or wondering if tri fire is going to work etc. Finally got fed up and went 2670 x 1600 30" HP and glad I did.
Yeah I could have picked up two more 1080p 24" monitors but I figure a 27" @1440p is good enough really.
The two 670's run everything fully maxxed out without skipping a beat and the increased pixel density is pretty awesome anyway.
I have seen a 3 screen setup @1440p, it took 3 titans, fuck, that.
I remember playing that two-screen X-men arcade game when I was a kid. I would dream about one day playing my home video games on multiple screens. You guys are living my childhood dream. Meanwhile I'm playing games on a 4-year-old 15 inch laptop.
I hate everyone in this thread.
speaking of monitors ive been looking around the last few days, whats the deal with gaming monitors and "black equalizer" vs a regular monitor, also xl vs rl fps vs rts monitors?
this site shows pics and kinda explains it but anyone actually have experience with them?

That's awful and you should feel bad.

Your justification in life is merely self serving. Imagine if society was 100% people like you, fuck living in that place.

That sure looks nice, but one question that I've always wanted to ask with such setups is, don't you have to turn your head a lot, or do you have the monitors so far away that it isn't an issue. And I suppose a followup question in case you do have to turn your head, do you not get tired in your neck?
I move my head sometimes. I arrange my UI so my central monitor dominates my vision for the most part. Its hard to beat the experience of something catching the corner of my eye in my peripheral monitors and that becoming the focus of my attention. Otherwise I would have missed it. Im not constantly moving my head around. Think of it as a larger window with which to view from.
Stolen from Reddit, but still awesome:
Anyone here ever do 3-monitor gaming with monitors of different resolutions? I currently have 2 1920x1200 28" Monitors. If I buy a 3rd I don't want to waste my time with something old like those 2, I'd like to get one of the 1440p Korean monitors and probably put it in the middle(and probably turn them all vertical)
Is it possible to even game across varying resolutions, or would they all just have to default to the lowest common denominator(1920x1200). My wife would kill me if I bought 3 new monitors right now(we just had our first kid), but I could swing one no problem.
IIRC there are stitching programs you can use for different monitors with varying reso's. I think you end up getting some weird resolution numbers though.
Nice screenshot though. Thats a sick setup.
In the market for a new monitor soon. Looking for something to play FPS games (building a system for Titanfall in the spring, currently playing TRIBES: Ascend). Anyone got any suggestions for max performance around $300-500? Don't need bigger than 24-27 inches. Plan on buying a GTX 790 or whatever AMD comes out with in October if it's attractive.
Currently eyeballing ASUS VG248QE
27" 2560x1440 is the only choice in my opinion. Check out the koreans (X-star / Qnix / Shimian / Catleap) for awesome prices.
Tons of details here => http://www.overclock.net/f/44/monitors-and-displays
Yeah, ofcourse. I bought one for 38$ from ebay so they're not that expensive.
Those max out at 1920x1080. We're talking about active (usb powered) displayport to dual link dvi adapters that can handle 2560x1440/1600.
Ah, gotcha. I haven't looked, but those sites don't have em?
