    Yep, the hammers are pretty handy. I have one in my room, screwdrivers are great for working on the ol' gaming rig.

    the screen is too small to be impressive. Can eyefinity run 3 30"?

    It would make more sense to have this 3 monitor setup with 4:3 aspect ration monitors. What do you think?

    You're a hard person to impress if three 23-inch monitors isn't impressive.

    From what I have read, the maximum res for Eyefinity is 7680x1600, which is three 30-inch monitors running at 2560x1600 each.

    Off the bat it would probably look better, but AMD is optimizing games for the odd aspect ratio.

    Nice video and impressive that Tom's finaly has something positive to say about ATI/AMD.

    looks like someone forgot to fix the FOV for for some of the games, other than that, gaming on 3 monitors is great.

    For me, I am stuck with 2 monitors which sucks for multiple monitor gaming, I can only play some games on it that allow for a console and allow me to change the FOV and also add a offset, (no point in having 1 side of the character on 1 screen and the other half on the other screen, it is nearly impossible to play a FPS game that way, but if you can add a bit of a offset, you can have the main action on the first screen and a extended view of the battlefield (at least the right side of it, on the second monitor). Hopefully nvidia comes out with a card that supports 3 monitors when they release their new series.

    So the Radeon 5870 is powerful enough for 3X "Full HD" resolution? That's pretty impressive, but it would REALLY be cool if you guys could post some benchmarks using the eyefinity setup. I am curious to know what kind of frames are achievable at such a resolution.

    Anyways, looks like everyone had fun. Cool stuff.

    It was awsome experience testing the new eyefinity setup in person. I cant wait for monitors with thin bezels to come out. Thanks to the staff at Toms Harware!

    The 955 BE we were running was at stock speeds (3.2 GHz).
