Hi

A dude told me that if I have a monitor that is 1920*1200 24" and 2 24" monitors that are 1920*1080 I could NOT get eyefinity as they are not same in native.

However to my understanding if I run my 2405FPW at 1920*1080 with fill scaling in screen options I don't see a reason why I could not run 3 monitors in eyefinity as they are same resolution?

Although the 2405FPW will always not be in native resolution.

EyeFinity will work fine with that setup. The only thing it will do is change the 1920x1200 resolution to 1920x1080 so it matches the other two. Basically, it sets all monitor resolutions to the lowest common denominator. I was running a 1920x1080 and two 1680x1050 and it simply set them all to 1680x1050 and worked great. I just didn't like the mild distortion that running my 1080p monitor in 1680x1050 looked like so I upgraded all of them to 1080p.

dkapke is correct, your 1920x1200 monitor will be forced to output the 1980x1080 resolution because eyefinity requires that all monitors be the same resolution.

When Tom's reviewed Eyefinity on lower-end cards (5450, 5570) there was a widescreen-fixer app.

Its called "Widescreen Fixer", Scroll down to the Modern Warfare picture.

I had forgotten about that, but putting a 1920x1080 resolution on a 1920x1200 screen should not look that bad, they are practically the same thing.
