Windows 7: Sifting through the b-s

Another triple monitor user here, although I only have 2 of them active at the moment. Will need a DP to DVI-D active converter first .

I did push a bad/stuck pixel in with my finger 4 years ago True story! Just some pressure was all it needed. Some people use pencil erasers (the ones at the end of the pencil).

For most games the surround monitors are just for peripheral vision, you don't look to them directly (they are distorted anyway). However, usually sims can have multiple cameras for each monitor and those you do look at (i.e., rFactor).

Yea I probably would only game on one anyway to keep sights properly in the middle of one screen,

Neat trick I'll have to remember the eraser trick
I would only use 2 screens anyway it's plenty,
The third might be my 40" t.v. though.
It's a bit too far away for gaming but good for watching t.v.

I've tried both pushing it with a pencil eraser and my finger. I also have a pixel checking program can "exercise" a small area of the screen by flashing it rapidly through the colors in hopes of jarring the stuck pixel loose; didn't work. It's one tenacious wee bugger.

Here is a screen shot showing all three monitors in use:

LOL! Not really; I hid the sensitive stuff before taking the shot.

If you are not so serious about playing games and just looking for a card that will power the real estate.

Why not go for a GTX770 or R9 280(X?) both can support multiple streams and both will play most games in max specs at the moment (BF4, Cyrsis on High). Call of duty will have no problems on these cards. However they are not bleeding edge, so they may drop off in a few years.

If you want to slightly future proof your GPU, get something with at least 3~4GB of VRAM. Most games are now taking advantage of the GPU RAM, and this is where you will find the most benefit. Especially if you want to run multiple monitors at high resolution. (1920*1080 is still a 2k resolution with 2 monitors you are techincally running 4k anyway)


My current rig is running 2*24" 1080p monitors and a third 1440*900 (Documents). And it runs everything I could throw at it. But when I get my 3rd monitor (tommorow :P) I'll be looking at a second card for SLI.

You should be able to run surround with 1 card. Unless you want SLI specifically. 2xdvi + 1 hdmi or dp.
