1440p or Eyefinity setup?

#1EpicKingdom_Posted 2/4/2014 11:58:27 PM
For my Tri-X 290?

Eh, I know eyefinity is like... a "gimmick" to you guys, but I have a dual monitor setup which is why I ask. I've yet to acquire the 1440p monitor. So I was just thinking. It'll cost me just $150 or less to pick up a third monitor of the same brand for my two, while on the other hand it's $500+ for a ASUS PB278Q 27-Inch.

Why not a Korean ebay 1440p monitor? They go to 120hz usually.

1440p and in the future when you have enough money do an eyefinity with 1440p.

Get an Overlord Tempest or something, then. They're pretty much the same thing as the Korean monitors but sold by Americans.

Eyefinity is a radeon technology. Basically makes all 3 monitors act as one so you can project the game or website across all 3 screens. Works great with fps games as you get a better peripheral vision. Also looks great in racing games. Problem is that a lot of games don't support it and usually requires some kind of program to force it to work.

As for the original question get a 1440p monitor. It will look so much better.
