Triple monitors on Windows 7
  

I try a 3 monitor setup with my Radeon 5870 Eyefinity with Windows 7. Earlier this week bought from Dell U2410, a resolution of 1920 * 1200 and an IPS panel has. I have two other monitors to the right and left side of my 3 panel installation. 2 P2310H thought to get. These monitors have a native resolution of 1920 * 1080, differs from my existing monitor. If money is no object (it is) I would U2410 2 more to buy when they go on sale, but will take more than $ 1,000. I could 640 million cockles in getting these two places, but my question is:

Is eyefinity requiring all three screens have a resolution identical? If so, when running games or all the time?
Can I change my primary monitor at 1920 * 1080, even if the native resolution is 1920 * 1200? Is it even possible, or is it possible but the picture sucked, or it will be fine? Iíve never an LCD, so I do not know if the resolution can be changed.

Assuming that this is possible, then I make the following decision:

"My heart monitor is 1 inch larger than the side monitors
"My heart monitor has a resolution of the other windows (1200 vs. 1080)
"My heart is an IPS so that the sides will TN's
-Another thread said that they cannot be used for games. Can someone explain this?

I know my decision, but opinions are welcome. All thoughts welcome!

Re: Triple monitors on Windows 7

Someone on another forum said I could monitor my estimated 1920 x 1080 with 1:1 scale, so a small bar at the top and bottom of the screen. so I can use up to 1920 * 1080 * eyefinity three monitors. if I do not play, I think I can support eyefinity disable use multi-monitor window and the mother and use the P2310 to their native 1920 * 1080 and the U2410 at its native 1920 * 1200

Ideas? useful?

Re: Triple monitors on Windows 7

This seems likely. If your game you will have to watch the border, the more the black bars on the sides. sucky.

Re: Triple monitors on Windows 7

I appreciate your comments, however, I will no black bars on the sides as I with all three screens in portrait mode. If I use them in the landscape, they are on the top and bottom of my control center only, and should be negligible. for glasses (up to monitor the border) there is really no way around this, if you want you can play multi monitor glasses. manufacturers apparently have a lot of very small telescope monitors are developed for this purpose.

I've heard that when immersed in a game, the glass does not in principle be observed. I have not experienced it myself (never played with the monitors)

Re: Triple monitors on Windows 7

I found the same question on the forum AMD. For the game, turn the monitor with higher resolution to the resolution of other monitors. For normal office work, you can check different resolutions. I have no answer to the screens are IPS and TN. I hope someone can answer this question.

Re: Triple monitors on Windows 7

Thanks for the confirmation, that's what I gathered from the research I've done

As for the IPS and TV together, do not think there is a system problems, the only ones that I really can imagine is that it may be hard to change the color and the TN panel may correspond with lower latency have This means that the gap The monitors may vary.
