I'm really wanting to know how much more the 6-out card is going to be from the regular 3-out ones and most importantly when Newegg will have them in stock. Man, this is gonna be an expensive month. :wink:

3 monitor is good enough for me.

in terms of gaming..

3 monitor gives me the advantage of ultra wide file of vision.


but with 6 monitors (assuming it is 2x3 grid like in those pictures) it just seem like a single big 16:9 with high resolution and bezels in between.

I might as well go for a 52" or 60" single HDTV LCD display.
at 6x monitor resolution can your system run at such high resolution?

and also if u sit so close to notice the ultra high resolution then the rest of the pictures is a blurr and away from your vision focus.


I think these people here are idiots. I would just go for a 60" LCD HDTV

All those ati demos, were they done with or without AA?

if it's without or even just 2x, it's not really that impressive.

hehe, that made my day. That's funny. It is for me at least. :lol:

6000x1920 portrait mode will be bada$$ though. And with it being an odd number of screens none of the center FOV bezel inconveniences. And yes, I'm monitor crazy lately. :wink:

Really 3x2 grid doesn't make sense to me. The aspect ratio for that setup is too 5:4 like. 5x1 portrait grid setup is true to surround-screen configuration though.

Yeah I agree. I use to use my 42" plasma (only 720p..) before I got my TH2go and quite honestly, I loved it! It just wasnt friendly for my room having to have a desk sitting in the middle of it instead of to the side..

Probably going to stick with my 24" monitors, depending on how thin the bezel is they may convince me to upgrade to them.. but id rather put that to a new 65" TV.

I think 3x24" horiz span is better than 5x24" in portrait mode, because you have a central widescreen monitor in horiz mode, for me better than a portrait one

After using 3x1 24" portrait mode for about 2 weeks now, I'm used to it. Web pages are way easier to deal with in portrait mode. It's mainly a subjective situation with no real right answer though. What is ideal for one isn't for another.

If I'm really going to be doing a new build I might reevaluate my choice of 245BW and sell my 4 and go 5 2343BWX with VESA mounting. I could probably break even on the change in displays and end up with higher resolution.
