Hi all,

I was on here a while ago discussing P-P-P or P-L-P set up. Well things have move on and I now have a 6 screen (three across - two high) and it's working wonderfully. I even picked up a cheap (£3.75) 5M LED strip so the whole thing has a nice green back light.

I am sure I will have plenty of questions about getting games to look their best in this set-up but for the moment here is what I am doing...

Bottom 3 screens attached to a 670GTX and Nvadia surround. This is the main gaming area.
Top middle screen also attached to the 670. The two outside tops are attached to a second card (quadro 1800 I think).

I then bring up a virtual system and capture a second keyboard and mouse to that system. This means if I am playing and get e-mails etc not only can I see them on the VM but I can just press pause on the main keyboard, move over to the second keyboard/mouse to deal with it then back to the main keyboard to continue. No messy alt-tabbing required.

I have only had this set up for a couple of days so am still working out the kinks but it seems to work quite well. This weekend is the first time I will have time to just play so will give it a proper (Metro LL) work out.
