Eyefinity doesn't simply stretch the same experience across three monitors. It opens up more of the game for you to see at any point in time.
Yes but it cannot do this as one monitor. That is why I wouldn't like it. I know its bigger resolution, a 50" cannot do more then 1280 by 1024 I don't believe. Still I don't see the point in crossing the monitors, nvidia has something similar I believe. Don't like it either. I just was pointing out that, that'd be a silly reason to go with ATI alone.

Well, the point would be by increasing immersion. Don't you think that it's more immersive to be able to turn your head from side to side and see an entire world around you instead of just a flat screen in your straight-on view?

The concern about the monitor bezels is understandable but overstated. Most that try it out claim they can't even see them after a while. You're not playing a game staring at the sides of your monitor; you're playing it looking at the screen itself. When you turn side to side, you look at the screen, not the bezels.

Couldn't this be a concern in multiplayer though? If someone lets say has this expensive option, and yes I understand its pretty darn expensive, can you see more of the screen in MP, giving you an advantage over most people running single monitors at a lower res? Never mind I guess people running at a higher res will always be able to see more though anyway.

I couldn't get use to those lines, even watching a youtube video bothered me quiet a bit. Its a good idea, but if I was going to bust out that kind of money I'd rather wait till they just made one big monitor that was able to handle that native resolution by default. Which I am sure we will see in a few years..

Yeah, it'll give you an advantage in MP, because you'll have a wider viewing range than most other people.

And Eyefinity's not all that expensive. LCDs are a dime a dozen these days. I got all three of my 23" 1080p screens for less than 520$.

Cant wait for the Fermi to come out.. Im hopefully going to step up my 2 GTX 260s that Im getting via EVGA RMA since one of my 8800gtx's kicked the bucket (if theyll let me) to GTX480s. Should be sweeet.

Its highly doubtful that my PSU will power both though (PC Power Silencer 750). :/

Crossfire 5870's recommend 600-650 watt PSU. I'm hoping they don't use much more power than the 5870s because ill have to replace my 750W PC PNC PSU as well if I want to SLI GTX480's...

If its really 280W like the rumor says, you'll probably need an 800W power supply minimum for SLI, maybe even 850.

Evga doesn't let you step up RMAs...

Yes, but you're saying they're going to launch the GTX 470 as the highest end card for a month or more? No way they'll do that... If they're going to only have 448SP cards they'll have a GTX480 with higher clocks, and then replace it with a 485 when 512SP parts become viable.

I would not bet on that.

What resolution does that put you at? Most games won't support those resolutions correct?

nvidia has the same option do they not? I seem to remember hear about it... I haven't checked in as thats the one thing that would bother me, was the lines in the monitors. I have a serious issue I get headaches if anything is distracting me. I could watch TV and if the covers on the bed I am laying in are up even a bit, not even really infront of the TV it will distract me, and I cannot watch TV unless they are completely out of my field of vision. I guess I am weird but I get headaches, and bothered by objects in the back ground, and those lines from each monitor would be very bothersome. If I ever decided to try this I'd like them to just make a big monitor to support that type of resolution, that'd be awesome.
