Heyyo,

I would definitely be drooling with some surround gaming.. or a graphics card powerful enough to hook up to a massive lcd led tv with full rez and everything.. or maybe projector... mm... high rez deliciousness.. I can feel my mouth watering now. :P

[EDIT1]
Hmm I just noticed on the Deus Ex 3 gameplay footage in eyefinity it clips in the wall at 1:44 in the video, hopefully that's fixed in release cause that game looks epic in multi monitor.

I have no experience with Eyefinity but I see several problems.

1. The cost of entry, 3 displays, a high end graphics card to power them and dvi-displayport
adapter(s) adds up.
2. Too few games work out of the box

The second can be fixed, the first not so much.

1. Not really, if you need to update the graphics card anyways. For me it cost only 2x150€ (screens) + DP->VGA adapter (40€), so totally 350€ extra.
2. Actually, most of the new games work or are very easy to make work. And lot of old games, even Baldur's Gate, can be made to run in Eyefinity. ;)

I've recently purchased a budget eyefinity card HIS 5670 1GB IceQ and additional two widescreen 23" monitors. Let me tell you that it is an awesome experience with eyefinity setup. Just the multi-monitor setup alone makes all the work that much faster, and playing games on eyefinity is that much more fun! Must have and highly recommended!! :D

I haven't personally experienced a multi monitor setup but have seen use of them before and it looks absolutely stunning. If I win this card I'll definitely be purchasing another monitor to setup eyefinity!

I have not specifically used eyefinity, but I have tried multi display gaming. It is quite the experience. Unfortunately I dont have the resources to have a set up myself.

There is currently a 6870 in my system that would love another 6870 to share the load of three monitors I got last week :D

I've only had Eyefinity a few days, but I love it for my racing games (F1 2010 and Dirt 2) because it allows me to see the cars to my side in the cockpit view.

I have not used Eyefinity.
But I have seen some videos of people playing driving games with 3 monitors, and I would like to try it someday. But actually, it is very expensive for me...

I currently do not use eyefinity, for several reasons

1. My current card is a Asus GT240....but I'm getting a 6870 for christmas
2. Don't have the money, plus when I do invest in a new monitor I plan to go 3D
3. ...well actually thats it, oh and the fact that I need to upgrade my cpu and ram (using 2g of ram with windows 7 64 bit right now...horrible idea... and I plan to upgrade to either a phenom II x4 965 or a Phenom II x6 1090....or wait about half a year and upgrade both my motherboard and cpu and get AMDs new cpu)

Anyways Eyefinity seems like a amazing thing to me since it allows for gaming to be more in depth, in my opinion anyways
