Holy crap. :drooling:

The only way that could be better is if it was 120Hz.

... well, and if it had no borders at all, but this is definitely an improvement.

Very nice but that price seems a bit steep. $1k is about the most i'd want to pay for any 3 monitor setup, I know this has advantages over seperate monitors, but not to the point of it being worth twice as much.

At some point, the quest for building the perfect flight sim setup will have to be weighed against the cost of buying an actual second hand Mig. :D

If those are 24"-26" screens that price isn't too far off considering they're not TN panels. I think Samsung uses PVA for their high end screens.

They're definitely more expensive than PVA screens of that size normally are, but the price isn't too far off. If they were TN panels they'd be waaaaaaay overpriced.

well these are quality PVA screens with 178 degree view, high contrast and thin bezels. Let's say on average it's $400 per screen + a 3 monitor arm usually go for $400-500. this thing is capable of holding six. so the price isn't unreasonable. The 6 monitors do sort of fix that fish eye view and limited vertical view from stretching the image across just 3 monitors, especially when they are 16x9 rather than 16x10. It does present some hud issues as you can see from Hawx when you are splitting the main view between 2 monitors vertically. But $3000 + $500 for the Radeon 5870 Six. Pc gaming is getting expensive. At least we have lots of options. Too bad games won't be optimized for these niche setups, be it eyefinity, 3dvision, or 3dvision surround.

here it is in action. amazing that it's running fluid when you consider the resolution of 5760x2400. that's almost 14MP on the upcoming 5870 2gig 6 output card.

actually 5760x2160 so that's 12.44MP. Still impressive to say the least.

Doesn't Eyefinity "destroy" fps? I mean you're running at super high resolutions.

those pay for themselves after you buy the addon Soviet main battle tanks.

bezels in middle totally destroy the experience
