    3 LCD's screens quesiton..

    hi guys..

    now that I have my 3 24" lcds.. what is the best way to hook them up for a wide view..

    option 1)
    My current setup is an ATI 1GB card with HDMI/DVI/VGA outputs... and add a second video card to the computer and hook up the third lcd to that.

    or

    option 2)
    get the TripleHead2Go Digital Edition box and hook them up that way..

    question is, if I use either option 1) or 2) do I loose FPS or it won't be that much..

    My system is an E8400 OC to 3.8 with 4GB ram and XP 64.

    thanks.

    Re: 3 LCD's screens quesiton..

    what resolution do you want to run on the 24" screens? if it's higher than what the triplehead2go supports you can try ATI's 5850 or 5870 cards with the eyefinity option to run 3 monitors from a single card. But you will also need a displayport to DVI adapter ($99) if your monitor doesn't have a displayport input. And yeah the more monitors and views you run the more FPS you loose but if you have a good PC it won't be too bad. The problem with option number 1 is that you would have to run multiple views which looks great but really kills the FPS rate.
