    eyefinity?

    How much does eyefinity take a toll on your graphics cards? I currently run with 2 ati radeon 7770's, and on each moniter (running 2 at the moment) run a resolution of 1440x900, so eyefinity would be 4320x900 instead of 5760x1080.

    well, it's really not that low resolution lol. i would understand your viewpoint if i were at like, 1280x720 but 1440x900 still looks nice. and for games like Diablo and WoW, and any other games that have support for it and while yes i know wow doesn't "support" it persay it can be done.

    Maybe I misunderstand what eyefinity is, but wouldn't it be 2880x900?

    Also, are your cards crossfired?

    I think he wants to get another screen making it the 4320x900. I cant think why you want to run two screens, the bezels will be in the middle.
    Also, why 2x 7770? Why not go with 1x 7850 or 7870?

    @chazus yes they are crossfire'd, and no... eyefinity is running 3 moniters in conjunction as one, Thus allowing the resolution of say 4320x900. 1440x3 is 4320, then the 900 is diagonal so that wouldn't change. here's an example of eyefinity: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DEahJM8uR1c

    why run two moniters? for the sake of multitasking. my primary monitor is centered and the second monitor is to the left. i dont play games with 2 monitors lol... the game as of right now appears on my primary monitor. but it is nice to have 2 monitors for multi tasking.

    question is still not answered. how much of a toll does it take on your graphics cards and system overall?

    Ah, I thought eyefinity was simply running "More than one".

    Eyefinity takes a decent toll. I know a 7770 alone can't even do it reliably. Two... eh. Maybe. They're nice cards but technically still pretty weak at higher resolutions, especially something like that.

    I was aiming at gaming on both screens

    But I guess you will half your FPS probably. Just check some graphs

    Considering 1920x1200 @ 58fps and 5760x1080 (almost 3x) @ 23fps... that's pretty much 3 screens at 1/3 fps. So whatever fps you get on one screen, divide by 2-3 depending on how many screens you have.

    Eyefinity would be weird with 2 monitors.. Absolute best with 3 since you can have middle for your normal game UI and side monitors just to increase FOV

    You will get a FPS drop of 50-70%.
