I have two questions really that would you be kind enough to answer? Firstly is it possible to use eyefinity and game over two monitors that are different resolutions? and can you even do it on only two monitors? If so, how would I go about setting it up please for games such as Just cause 2, and Dirt 2?
My second question is a completely different subject but I would rather ask for suggestions in this thread than starting another and wasting any more of your time. What are my chances of being able to crossfire my HD 5770 with my current PSU here is a link so that you know the specs.
In terms of eyefinity, yes you can use two those two monitors. however it will look AWFUL.
not only will the resolutions need to be scaled, leaving you with black bars on the top on bottoms, but the monitor images wont line up and will be at different levels. not only that, but the bezels of the screens will run right down the center of the image, making playing the game near impossible. really not a good idea.
as for the PSU, it may be able to crossfire. it wil lbe close to the edge though. Its a good quality unit, but im not entirely convinved 500w is enough for two 5770's. looking at raw numbers, it should be enough. in practice it may be different though. the only way to be sure is to try it. Your overclock and general system will liekly push it closer to being unlikely though, as it will be drawing a lot.
1+^ i tried testing some games even with two 22'' monitors it just annoys the crap out of me. so im using x2 15" with a 22" in the middle. my advice is just to look around on ebay and see if you can find another 15". then set it up with the 19" in the middle and two 15" on the sides.
yes you can use monitors with different resolutions but they will automatically go to the lowest common resolution that they both support.
