Hey guys,
Just did a major upgrade on my gaming rig. It is now:
4770k @ ~ 4.3
2 X Sapphire r9 r90 tri-x
Asus Maximus VII Hero
16 GB DDR3-1866

I currently have a Benq XL2720Z and I love it. However yesterday I hooked my old Samsung 245T up to run dual monitor and it has made me think that maybe an eyefinity setup with 3 of the Benq would be pretty awesome. The Benq is a 1920x1080 144hz display. Could I run three of them on my crossfired 290's?

What other factors should I be looking at?

Thank you in advance

Phad.

I'm not familiar with eyefinity setups so I can't give you personal experience. I believe the BenQ you list could run eyefinity. My only advice would be to find out what connectivity you need from the GPU to the monitors and make sure you have everything before you pull the trigger.

On a whim, I tried to run 2x 28" monitors with SLI a few months back. Long story short, I didn't do enough research and wound up unable to do it because the I/O connections on the monitors were not compatible with SLI requirements. NOTE: this should not be a problem for you since the BenQs have adequate input options.

Hope this helps.

Adding to the above, if EyeFinity is similar to Surround Vision, you can only use two DVI and one HDMI (you can get a DVI converter if you need it).
