  1. I'd be tempted to operate the monitors in portrait mode, making the image less wide, but higher. The three 30" monitors would yield 4800 wide by 2560 high. It would be interesting to see what that looked like.

    The top monitor would almost be touching the roof, in fact it could well go that high. My neck is sore just thinking about it.

    Well Steve, our guest is actually on to something here. The best use I can think of for an arrangement such as guest has suggested, is for flight simulator type programs. In this case, looking down is a likely scenario in real life.

    So, to make the point of view realistic and believable, your direct eye line needs to be centered vertically in the display. And that means you would need to lower the desktop quite a bit. About a foot, actually.

    sooo...when you are playing Total War Napoleon, you should have the screens up over your head?

    Dear Mr 1776, when have you taken leave of functional literacy?

    Or, (second answer), if you're being hit by an airstrike, (as in being bombed from above) then why the f*** not?

    Wait a minute, did Napoleon even have airplanes?

    ROFL....The game is from Napoleon's perspective...get it?...HE WAS SHORT DAMMIT! :haha:

    See what being overtired, being Laurance Nightengale and 'packing peanuts' does to you?....please help me! :haha::haha:

    Sorry, that was a bit too subtle for me. I would think you would have to shove one of the monitors down your pants, for a "thumbs eye veiw", as it were.....

    That's what you get for not sharing.

  10. It was an ok review. What is annoying is websites like this who don't declare a winner. Looking at his final thoughts, there is no winner. Declare a winner already! Who won? The last page should have a big trophy showing RADEON WON THIS BATTLE. but they won't because they are too worried about the possible affect on advertising revenue.

    Well, we were kind of hoping that an ATI fanboi would ride his magic carpet of hot air into town and give out the trophy. You did bring a trophy didn't you?

    Would the trophy go in horizontally as in your diagram...? Is there a step 2...? Possibly rinse and repeat...? Or maybe lube and repeat...?
