    Would love to see someone but it and hook up all 12 monitors. The e-peen would be into the stratosphere.

    Good to see ATI is having fun with their new cards, I wonder what they will think of next in the 6000 series.

    Imagine the time it would take to set the bezel correction on all those monitors!

    And yet ... the targeting reticule will still be hidden behind the bezel! An odd number of monitors it the only way to do proper gaming. Unless ... you set up your monitor in 2 groups ... one of nine and one of three. Hmmm ... that could work.

    Booo i rather get two of those Sapphire 5970 TOXIC 4GB. 12 screens is just crazy lol. But still wow. Imagining 12 50" screens together is mouthwatering . That would be like 600 effing inches!! But because its only display ports its gonna be really annoying lol. :p

    I have one of those, perhaps I've found a worthy successor.

    I think eyefinity is what you make of it. Companies would be interested in that sort of 'large & flat' thing from an on-site advertising point of view.

    And I'm not sure you can get projectors with high enough resolutions to match that?

    It's either or. Both terms are correct. Google search for active display port adapter, and exactly what I am referring to comes up.

    If I were using it for gaming, I would use it for a surround effect. I believe it would change your sense of direction in the game. But if it's just to have a big flat screen....meh (high res or not). Not too mention the cost difference.

    24*$160(the cheapest 22' monitor on Newegg) = $3840
    1*$2600 (the most expensive projector, maybe not the best) = $2600

    But that's just me....:toast:
