    The Parhelia splits DVI output 2 to 2 RGB connections so you can use a multitude of screen combinations

    My Sony's taking refuge at a friends house for the time being... It's in use though.

    That's coming.. got lots of stuff to add to this thread yet...

    All in time! :naughty:

    I haven't tried Insane in surround gaming mode :) I'll have to give it a go/ see if it works!

    Drooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    Insane setup with the monitors. Is the display for games "streched" across the three of them, or is each one its own individual view?

    I "only" have dual monitors, but I think that I can answer that one ;)

    Some games only use one monitor, such as older games or even some of the newer ones.

    The ones that do support multi-monitor stretch it across the screen (afaik), which is realy sweet when playing with 3 identical monitors, but when you have dual-monitors like I do, it can make playing a pain (your dude is split in two with aprox 2-3" seperating his halfs).

    I love having 2 monitors, would love to have a third, but I couldn't possibly afford it. As it is, I got these 2 17" LCDs on sale for like $259 a peice :eeek:

    Nice rig Kane :thumb:

    How much did it cost, and did you have to take out a second mortgage for it?

    Only one of those 3 LCDs are digital using a digital connection.

    An lcd is not worth using unless it's using DVI.

    I wouldn't agree with you there... while the digital display does come up crisper, the difference is marginal... only occasionally do the analogue displays not auto adjust correctly, and this get's fixed by pressing a button.

    Also, when working in non-native resolutions (e.g. games) the resize that the displays use (to make the image fill the screen) is very smooth and has the effect of FAA making the image look very good, even at 640x480 resolutions!

    For those who love big screen goodness (and who doesn't), there's the Dell 2000FP 20" TFT monitor which goes for under £700,-- (even less in the US). It's a quality screen. Now imagine three of those babies... oh my, it is just too much... have to sit down now...
