    Custom Displays

    Interesting, I know others are also working on this with the LG LP129QE1 - see the ibm t221 yahoo group for details. It would also be tempting to explore the 15.4" LP154WT1 since the bigger display might be better for a desktop replacement.

    Exploring the HW limitations of Nvidia Surround gaming

    2 display support is coming, current estimate is r325 but of course subject to change. This feature is most useful to people running 4k displays which are handled as two panels on the backend (sharp 4k and ibm t221 are the most common current examples). AMD has been supporting 2 display...

    How far away for 4K PC monitors, and affordable ?

    It's great for reading and photo editing as well but playing games is where I think high dpi monitors really shine since its (at least for me) a more immersize experience.

    How far away for 4K PC monitors, and affordable ?

    Yeah I don't have Crysis so not sure what it plays like but for the games I mentioned they're playable at 3840x2400.

    How far away for 4K PC monitors, and affordable ?

    I've had enjoyable experiences gaming on my ibm t221 with a 7950 3gb. I haven't played all the latest games but Hitman Absolution, Deus Ex HR, and Borderlands 2 are all fun and run well. With a high dpi display I can usually turn down or off AA settings to help with frame rates. One of the...

    Eh, 4k isn't that big of a graphical challange esp since you need less AA with smaller pixels. I'm pushing 8 megapixels on a t221 with a 7950 and most games play pretty well, for things like web and office work even integrated will be fine.

    Nvidia live from CES.

    I thought Grid is supposed to be the business oriented cloud gaming hardware platform? Companies like OnLive would buy Grid to support their offerings rather than a consumer offering.

    Westinghouse to release 50", 55", 65" 2160p@120hz televisions

    2 x dual link DVI is a pita now that ATI is only shipping with 1 DL-DVI (as of the HD 6000 series) connector and nVidia surround doesn't support 2 screen surround. nVidia mosiac seems to be the ideal solution but it's only on their quadro cards ($$$).

    $5500 4K 32" Sharp LCD on the way

    It's an interesting monitor but the pixel density is a bit disappointing, I'd rather have the same resolution in a 24" screen.

    ASUS Matrix HD 7970 Platinum

    Quick question regarding the outputs, are both DVI dualink if none of the displayports are used? nvm found my own answer: looks like you either get 1 single link DVI + 1 dual link DVI + 3 displayports or 1 single link DVIs with 4 displayports

    Will I ever switch to LCD?

    Geometry issues were the biggest annoyance about CRTs along with the fact they were big, heavy, and text was fuzzy.

    In need of a better VPN solution

    +1 for the Cisco ASA with the SSL VPN licenses. It works well and as long as your users have local admin you don't need to install anything ahead of time. The new x series looks pretty nice as well.
