Looking to Eyefinity with new hd7850. Any advice on 3 monitor setup??

Right now i have 1 samsung syncmaster 2232GW LCD widescreen monitor

I was thinking 2 19inch monitors. I don't want the setup that looks too long, low, and skinny.
I think 3 widescreens is to wide and not tall enough. "if that makes sense"

I saw a setup with 22 widescreen in middle then 2 19" turned sideways. Does eyefinity work or can you game with 1 22" center monitor and 2 19" monitors TURNED SIDEWAYS???

Also what are good monitor brands?

I've been thinking samsung, dell, or asus?

Anyone have any good 19" side monitors that they recommend? If so could you mention the Model #'s

Any brands or models to stay away from? Bad experiences, DOA's, Short life span, Bad Quality or Connectivity,... ETC

I looking to spend 125-150 per monitor.......

Anybody know of any websites that offer deals if you buy multiple monitor's or tvs???

Thanks

I highly doubt a 7850 has the muscle to drive 3 monitors in games. although you didn't give a resolution. assuming 3x1080p. maybe with baby side panels it'd get by

Eyefinity will make the vertical resolution the same across all 3. they can be a little off, you'll just get black bars on the higher Res panel. For instance you could use a 1080p main monitor with 2side panels with a vertical Res of 1024(you could turn them too).

I'd probably just use 3 matched 1080 panels in portrait but that's just me. guess it wouldn't work with your existing monitors weird shape

No. All 3 monitors must have the same resolution & orientation.

It is better to get 2 more 22" incher which is as close to your current 22" monitor as possible in terms of size. The you can arrange them into 3x1080x1920 instead of the ultrawide 3x1920x1080. The 7850 might not have the muscle to play games at this resolution at very high setting so you might have to lower some details.

i have 2 hannspree 20" widescreen HF207
1 Samsung 2232gw
In CC all three monitors show up but i can't duplicate or extend the third one.
I can only get two monitors at 3360x1050.
I guess i am trying to get 1680x1050x3 to work. I don't care about ultra settings. I just want to see what eyefinity looks like on all three.

1 samsung to dvi
1 hannspree to hdmi
1 hannspree. hdmi to displayport to displayport mini adapter
