Setting up Triple monitors for gaming? 2 x 22" and 1 x 19" ?
Hi all i am trying to setup a triple display with 3 monitors 2x 22" and 1x 19", the 19" is the middle and the 22" monitors are either side. I have all three monitors working but what i want to do is pan my entire desktop across the 3 displays so that i have one big desktop and i am able to play all games panned across the 3 monitors etc....

In order to do this you would want to do what is called "2D surround"

http://www.nvidia.com/object/3d-vision-surround-system-requirements.html

Few major things is, since you are not using the same 3 monitors, your resolution will most likely be hampered due to this, and you "might" be forced to use a lower than desired resolution.

I say "might" because the key factor here is [b]Sync Polarity[/b]if the common resolution shared between all 3 monitors does not have the same Sync Polarity it will default to the next available/lower resolution.

Also you would need 2 cards in SLI, Or a Dual GPU NVIDIA card, or a GTX 680
