120hz gaming or eyefinity?

I've decided to sell my gtx 570 for a 7950 and I was wondering should I get eyefinity or one 120hz monitor? I just want your guys opinions on which you prefer. I was thinking 120hz but tell me what you think! I already have 2 of the same monitors so id just have to buy one more for 130$ or I would sell them and get the benq x1 2410t for the led backlit and 120hz.

    i don't know, i just don't like eyefinity/surround. i'd much rather have a 120hz screen or a 27" 2560x1440p monitor than eyefinity/surround.

    its just up to the person, if you think you will like eyefinity/surround more than a more fluid monitor or a monitor with high pixel density then go for it.

    Absolutely... LG has models out that have a bezel of 1/2 inch or less... and im sure so do others.

    There are also rumors of LG releasing a 120hz 27" screen with a bezel of about 1/16 inch or so, It was demo'ed at CES, but they have yet to announce a realase date for it.

    Wait a few months and see what comes about - when they do release it, it will be the best of both worlds.
  6. Hmmm...

    If I had to choose one I would go with 3 monitors for Eyefinity, but that means I would be pushing 3 1920x1200 resolution monitors.... so that means I would probably opt for the HD 7970 or wait for the $800 HD 7990. I prefer a single power card rather than deal with XFire (or SLI for nVidia).

    120Hz monitors all use TN panel technology something I don't like. I prefer monitors with H-IPS panel tech, but they do not support 120Hz.

    I hope ya not expecting anything major outta the HFX upgrade.... will be hard to notice a 15% increase in fps.....ya'd get a 66% increase outta a 2nd 570.

    There os a 27" 120 Hz monitor on the market, but it's packaged with nVidia glasses.
  8. You will have a hard time playing current games in eyefinity with any better than medium graphic settings with a single 7950. Even the 7970 on high settings can't get any more than 35fps in bf3 in eyefinity. This is the most graphically intense game that I can think of so the quality will certainly depend on the game you are playing.
  9. I went with 30" 2560 x 1600 wow what a huge difference over my 26" 1920x1200. Do not hesitate...go full go 30" The thing I don't like about Eyefinity are the LCD frames...if there were no frames LCD than it would be been a different story.
