5) I assume this won't work for spanning all three screens for gaming? (I'm looking to do this in future and it's not essential now - currently thinking I'll get an active displayport adaptor and an eyefinity card to do this later).
2. Spanning will not work in Vista or Win7.
3. Nbr 1 will work fine. Spanning will not work.
4. Either would be fine.
5. Correct. Nvidia is working on its own version of Eyefinity called Nvidia Surround and 3D Surround.
With regards to 3) maybe I'm using the wrong terminology and maybe I just mean extended desktop. Presumably I can make use of all 3 monitors with different apps running windowed (and draggable between monitors) on each though, right?
I'm curious what is meant by spanning though (is it ala eyefinity - all three monitors treated as one big resolution?)
