    It's from havertys. I don't think they carry it anymore. The space isn't as small as it looks, there is just some massive monitors on that side of the room. Walking in and it is nice and open.

    Ahhh, made the assumption based on the room width and lack of the 4th wall pic :) Still a nice setup!

    Will check Haverty's website and see if they have something similar. Very handsome desk.

    I'm not sure on the screen type. I haven't investigated that deeply yet. I'll try and look tonight.

    @vc_hi: Nice. I had a similar setup not too long ago. Do you game on it? When I had 5 30"rs, I could only play older games.

    Yes. Wargame: AirLand Battle, Strike Suit Zero, Borderlands 2, Sins of a Solar Empire, Starcraft 2 and WoW. AirLand Battle looks great at 8000x2560 with Crossfire.

    However, Eyefinity is pretty finicky. Especially when you run it at 8000x2560. Too many issues over the years (Monitor, EDID, Dual-Link DVI & Displayport Cables, Displayport Adapters, USB Power for Displayport Adapters, Pin 20 for Displayport Cables, Video Cards, Video Drivers, Windows 8/7, Video Games, DirectX 8/9/10/11, Fullscreen vs Windowed, Crossfire and Running Separate Video Cards [Multiboxing], etc). I've been working through each issue one by one trying to make the setup stable.

    The following games have native support at 8000x2560 in fullscreen mode:
    Wargame: AirLand Battle
    Strike Suit Zero
    Borderlands 2

    The following games require the config file modified for 8000x2560 in windowed mode:
    Sins of a Solar Empire
    Starcraft 2
    WoW (Multiboxing)

    There's more games. But I will have to draw up the list. It will take some time.

    I remember all those issues, and it's why I downsized to 5400x1920. I worked through them, but if one adapter broke, I had to reset every monitor and adapter, plus I had sooooo many cables to each monitor. Power, DVI, USB hub, dp->dvi adapter, usb power, etc. I was using 5x3007wfp-hc's with dp->dvi adapters.

    None that reliably work. Unfortunately.

    As time goes on, AMD (and other component hardware and software manufacturers) is making Eyefinity more stable.

    As for Windows 8/8.1, I don't think Eyefinity is ready (@ 8000x2560). Upgraded twice only to reformat twice and go back Windows 7. Eyefinity does not work at that high of resolution. Now, if you ran all the monitor individually without Eyefinity, then it work fine. I did this in between formats with an additional Dell touchscreen monitor and it was a interesting experiment but not being able to play video games kind a forced me back to Windows 7.

    I first tried 5x1P Eyefinity with Apple miniDP > DL DVI adapters, very bad mistake. I should have checked the AMD certified components website and even then, some of those components were still not DP compliant (20 pin issue).

    I would like to see if the above adapters will work with Eyefinity when Mac OS X "Mavericks" comes out later on this year.

    If you're aiming for 8000x2560 and/or 120Hz, try check out the Club 3D MST Hub and Dell U3014 monitors. Maybe that might help in cutting back on adapters to some extent (less troubleshooting).

    In regards to the DP to DVI adapter... have you found any that work reliably? I bought some of the active ones from StarTech, but they aren't without their challenges. Where possible I just connect my 30's through DP directly, but a couple of them don't have DP available...

    how in the world could you possibly even start the game with that amount of pixels?? thats 20 million pixels.. people are having a hard time with 3 titans at 8 million pixels.

    ... i imagine it must look great though!

    Anandtech did a quick benchmark with max settings @ 4K resolution:
    http://anandtech.com/show/7120/some-quick-gaming-numbers-at-4k-max-settings

    I know the above link shows powerful rigs being brought down to their knees. However, based on what I have seen with my setup, as long as you keep AA and all it's equivalent off, and do the same thing with shadows and HDR, it will run decent.

    No, I just want to connect my notebook (ThinkPad W520) to my Dell 3007WFP-HC (DVI DL only).

    My brother has a Bizzlink DP to DVI Dual Link adapter, I believe this one:
    [​IMG]
    And it works perfectly.
    Was around 40 euro's on eBay I believe. 1/3rd the cost of the original form Dell.

    But even if I get one like that, I would need a DVI switch too, and then I arrive at the point "Is it worth to put that kind of money into connecting just this 6-year old monitor?" For EUR 1050 I can get a new Dell U3014 that has both DVI and DP inputs while also decreasing energy consumption. Nah, whatever :eek:

    Even the stinking Lenovo dock doesn't have DL DVI btw :mad:

    Where can you get the Club 3D MST Hub? does it allow one displayport to output 2560x1600 x 3?

    First question: if you're in the US, you will not find any of them here. If you're in Europe or Asia, you can find some of them there.

    Second question: No. You will not be able to run 3x 2560x1600 monitors off of it.

    Bandwidth Requirements:
    3x 2560x1600@60Hz uses about 24Gbps.

    Bandwidth Available:
    1x DP 1.2 provides 17.28Gbps.

    So a max of 2x 2560x1600@60Hz through the MST Hub. You might be able to get away with lowering the refresh rate to save that bandwidth for the third monitor. However, that depends on whether or not your monitor supports that lower refresh rate.

    Nice!!!

    How's that Matrix Mini-i treating you?
    I've had a small bug with mine every once in a blue moon playing at full volume (0dB) even when the volume is turned all the way down. power cycling normally takes care of that issue though.

    Thanks! I do enjoy the Mini-i quite a lot. Luckily, I haven't run into any problems in the almost year that I've had it. And I would be incredibly frightened if it did start playing all of a sudden at 0dB. I usually keep mine anywhere from -65 to -50dB, so I can't imagine how loud or damaging playing at max could be.

    After, three LG 27EA63V-P picked up for $250 a pop:

    Can't wait to use them with my Fanatec setup, just need to figure out a mounting setup that will work for PC use and sim racing.
