    Alienware OptX AW2310 de-bezeled, NVIDIA Surround (Portrait) setup

    I finally ripped the bezels off my Alienware OptX AW2310's and wrote a guide for it - let me know what you think! http://australia.tweaktown.com/guides/4714/alienware_optx_aw2310_23_inch_monitor_de_bezel_modification_guide/index.html Without the bezels, it's just eye candy :)

    3x 30" Portrait 6970 CF Eyefinity vs 580 SLI Surround Showdown

    yeah, I know that :P I think it was.. maximus 3 extreme: slots 1 / 2 = 8/8x slots 1 / 3 = 16/16x

    3x 30" Portrait 6970 CF Eyefinity vs 580 SLI Surround Showdown

    I know... but my problems disappeared when I did that. My temps dropped drastically, from overheating and keeping the clock speeds up to going much lower and not running ~100C the entire time.

    3x 30" Portrait 6970 CF Eyefinity vs 580 SLI Surround Showdown

    Yeah I did... I had all sorts of problems at first (especially with the GPU's down clocking on 3 screens) found out it was an 8/8x limitation. I'm using an Asus Maximus 3 Extreme, and ports 1 and 2 are 8/8 so I moved to 2 and 3 which I think are 16/16x and my clock speeds and hence idle temps...

    3x 30" Portrait 6970 CF Eyefinity vs 580 SLI Surround Showdown

    FWIW, I run 3 x Alienware AW2310's in Surround Vision Portrait Mode. GTX570 SLI Core i7 860 @ 4ghz No problems at all - I only play BC2. 120 - 130fps 90% of the time, on the more hardcore maps ~100fps. All I require is 120fps for my 120hz goodness. My 5970 was a pile of shite for doing it...

    BFBC2: considering upgrading

    I think it's my large resolution + requirement for 120fps + 4ghz chip. So many people with yeah, as you said Q6600's and GTX580 wondering why it doesn't perform well :P

    BFBC2: considering upgrading

    I run: Core i7 860 @ 4ghz GTX570 SLI 3 x Alienware AW2310's in portrait BF:BC2 graphic details @ high, AA 1x, AF16x 3240x1920 ~90fps constant. Impressive. I get ~96 - 98% GPU use on both GPU's. Edit; Turned off HBAO... now: 120 - 130fps nearly constant! :D

    Martinje SLI Surround Portrait Gaming

    I've setup my screens in portrait and love it. Alienware AW2310 - 1080p @ 120hz x 3. GTX570 SLI it kicks arse... could never go back to landscape.

    Is Bad Company 2 Vietnam Worth $15?

    In today's world of console-raping DLC, people are that tight to not pay $15 for this? I'd rather pay DICE $15 than some other company $15 for yet-another-DLC.

    NV 2D Surround DX9 Portrait Mode Not Functioning

    Which set? The 263 drivers are the newest? http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7-winvista-64bit-263.09-whql2-driver.html That's what I'm using... so you're using the 260.xx drivers and it's OK in Portrait? I might have to try that tonight :D

    NV 2D Surround DX9 Portrait Mode Not Functioning

    I tried this last night with TF2 (forced SFR) and it did not fix the issue... still 54fps and it feels very, very 'laggy'.

    Video card reviews: more focus on minimum frame rates!

    Plus it's getting harder to know which GPU's are better for certain things - especially since virtually every game is a console port, with frame limitations, caps and not very good support for PC GPU's.

    AMD 6900 series, Delayed Until December, only Soft Launch.

    Oooh that news post caused quite the kerfuffle. http://www.kitguru.net/components/graphic-cards/zardon/amd-hd6970-update-and-performance-indicators/comment-page-1/#comment-6097 From what I read, the 6970 will beat the 580 and be cheaper. This quote: “The HD6970 is not aimed at the...
