I know a lot of folks like to rip on AMD and their driver support, but here is my experience tonight.

1. Setup 3 1920x1080 monitors
2. Connect 2 via DVI
3. Open Catalyst Control Panel and go to Eyefinity settings
4. Plug in Mini-DP active adapter
5. Configure setup by telling the Catalyst app which monitor was 1,2,3
6. Load Oblivion and start playing at 5760x1080 within 5 minutes

yeah, eyefinity is pretty easy setup.

welcome to the eyefinity club btw. Oblivion in eyefinity is fun. Skyrim performance will piss you off. Morrowind with all the graphical mods is fun in eyefinity.

I think the big area where they are ripping AMD on thier drivers is mainly crossfire, and then the few games that are Nvidia's "The way its meant to be played" optimised. other than that, amd drivers are very solid.

How did you get Skyrim working? I tried and game consistently freezes within 5 minutes. :(

Setting Eyefinity up was pretty easy on my machine as well. Though I had to use active dual-link DVI to mini-DP adapters, which don't come cheap. Eyefinity and the newer Catalyst control panel are pretty good. It's the in-game driver support that's pretty bad sometimes.
