Hello All,

My desktop setup currently is as follows:


1 24" 1920x1200 BenQ and 2 Dell 19" fullscreen 1280x1024 flanking the 24"

I am seriously considering getting a 5850/5870 so I can do Eyefinity with the three screens.

What I am asking is - is that possible with the three screens not being the same resolution?

since the two side screens are about 100 pixels shorter will that squish the image on the center screen? Or will there just be a little unsee able real estate on the top and bottom?

I am mostly going to be playing COD MW2 on this setup so I was thinking the 5850 - much less money and it should still run CoD wonderfully. Although with three screens going instead of one that might change.

Mostly though I want to know if I can run Eyefinity on this setup, and will it work properly considering I have a more powerful setup right now with the 4890s.

Thanks for your time and I look foreward to heering back from you.

I don't think that it'll work. It has to be the same resolution, and the game will look horrible even if it does work.
