I connected my 2x24" monitors up and had a go at running at 3840x1200.

Call of Duty 4 demo ran fine. Not a single stutter etc.

Was uselss though because the bloody crosshairs were split :(


I would buy another 24" except I only have one Grpahics card :(


Does anyone know any other really good games?

I also tried Serious sam :o

What your looking for is the Matrox Triplehead to go. http://www.matrox.com/graphics/en/gxm/products/th2go/digital/home.php

It allows you to seamlessly connect 3 monitor as if it were one. The only problem is that you'll only be able to get 1280 x 800 on each screen. If you are only planning on running windowed mode than getting another GPU would be the best bet.

I've played UT2004 on 3 17" CRT monitors with 2 hooked up to my 8800GTX and the third hooked up to a 6800GT. Suprisingly enough in windowed mode I still had decent framerates. It wasn't really all that practical though because there was way to much space in between each screen.

Here is another cool place to browse for info on surround gaming. http://www.widescreengamingforum.com/wiki/index.php/Surround_Gaming

Here is a link showing the difference. http://www.matrox.com/graphics/en/gxm/products/th2go/gaming/screenshots.php
