i curently have a 42 in display and was wondering how i should proceed if i bought 2 more of the same. my current pc is not gonna be used, i need to start from scratch. im expecting some good money coming in, and was wondering if it is possible for me to build my own tripple monitor display world of warcraft gaming unit. (world of warcraft only! im an addict, alliance all the way )
Any suggestion on case/mobo/vid cards and such that would do the trick, without reaching for the stars, just what id need to play wow on 3 42inch displays (as one) with really good performance/quality.
please any help on choosing realistic components for a new system that will not exceed there intended use (WORLD OF WARCRAFT)
if you could please list the hardware that you think would be needed to do this build at a min. or a system that is built and is the best discription of what i am looking for, i gratefully appreciate your time and effort and thank you in advance, thank you.
3 Displays - No doubt ATI HD 57xx or the HD 58xx series...
The HD 5770 would best suit for WoW as it is not too costly but still powerful enough to push all the pixels...
This will give us more info about your requirements and from where you can source your parts... http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advic...
When you say 42" display I'm assuming you mean a 42" LCD TV. Is it a 720 or 1080P TV? You'll have no problems if its a 720P TV, but if you have a 1080P model then you're going to want the 5870. CPU can be any beefy quad core, might as well go i7. Toss in 4/6GBs of ram and a drive and your set.
found this clip in another thread. its a 5770 running wow supposedly on max settings no aa on 3 24" screens, looks like 1080 resolution, consistantly getting ~15 fps in a 60 man raid.
so ya the 5770 appears to run wow well but the 5850 or 5870 will be needed to break 30 fps.
side note: one of the releasing articles for the 5780 eyefinity version said that it could run wow on max settings on 6 30" 2560 x 1600 with ~38 fps. just for comparison. (cant seem to find that article...)
Read this link. WoW is optimized for 2 cores, but runs better on 4 if you configure it properly. This WoW forums post includes numerous blue posts about how you do it.
It starts off in 2007, but quickly moves to 2009. If you're going to be using 3 screens, you should read it. http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=1...
A trial $1,100 AMD build complete with OS, uses a single 5850, but configured to crossfire.
Not a bad build seeing as it includes an OS. You could possibly get it down to $1000 if you buy a slightly weaker CPU such as the 955 or 940. Or if you pair the AM3 chip with an AM2+ board with cheaper DDR2 memory. Performance in either case shouldn't be much less. Either way, nice what $1000 will get you and hopefully leaves you with enough for the screens. Remember when we spent $2500 on just the computer?
I'm just saying (might just be me) but i'm running 3 x 22inch asus monitor and i have the ATI Radeon 5850 and i'm also a wow addict...for FPS on a 5040x1050 resolution the 5850 is more then enough BUT i'm not sure wow is working 100% with eyefinity...just saying this cause once in a while i get glitches from wow and eyefinity witch i don't get else where (like blink from the 3 screens and stuff...i'm waiting for an answer from blizzard too see if its me or wow and eyefinity GL !
