Specifications of paper pretty much in line with them, which are available in the standard AMD Radeon HD 5870 and Cypress GPU clocked at 850MHz. not bad either.

I didn't even know that this technology existed!

By the way, $1900 is more than my computer cost me!   Are there better moniters that can seam together to give it a less "broken up" effect for the picture?

With the large cost to have that setup, wouldn't it be cheaper or better just to get a widescreen TV? I'd have to agree it'd be ideal as a workstation, but certainly not for gaming. Chances are, if you can afford or would even consider doing something like this, you either need it for work or you have deep pockets with no trouble throwing large amounts of cash at anything. lol You want a big screen that bad then get a HD LED TV. :P

For gaming, I would just get one big monitor or HDTV and save some green for more games!

I assume this is mostly for gaming, that said, wouldn't six monitors be annoying or almost unplayable?

In an fps, your crosshairs would fall in the centre between screens, in a driving game wouldn't it obstruct whats going on right in front of you?

I could see 3 monitors, [ ][ ][ ], you would get expanded peripheral display, other than that, the only real use I could see would be for complex tasks like graphics design.

Having a monitor for each window in the hammer editor in source designing would be cool for example.

Well... I'm not sure about using a monster setup like this for gaming, but it would work great for other, more productive, purposes (ie. audio/video editiing, photoshop, network monitoring, CCTV monitors).

In my case, I could us a setup like this to monitor my whole server farm as well as keep an eye on my CCTV setup at home.

So, Umm...Besides the resolution, what's the point? I agree with tehR0XX0Rz.. Bezeles just arent sexy. I think most people would perfer just to have a larger screen, but then again, thats just me..

Yeah, I'm waiting for some modders to rip the bezels off, construct their own non-bezel 6 monitor system and post some work logs.
