Planning on playing PS2 with Triple monitors?


Here is an example of someone running BF2 with triple monitors, NVidia's GTX 680 SLI with BF2. Is anyone planning on doing this with PlanetSide 2?

Looks confusing :s
I would rather stick with one monitor...

The two side monitors distort the picture way too much for my liking.

Not a fan of the multi monitor set up to be honest. Not to mention it takes fucking 3x the cost to do it for literally the same performance, except better FOV and it's cooler I guess.


The thing is though you better have IPS panels cause TN will look like shit with those 2 monitors that are turned in some.

The color on the side screens looks odd. I would be way to distracted by that. Not sure if that is normal since I never really seen triple monitors in action.

This set up is certainly for people with extra cash to spend. It's more of a "Cool Factor" thing and a "Damn this game looks good, so why not?" kind of thing.

That looks like a bit much, I would love to just be able to put a full screen mini map on a second monitor....or possibly split between minimap and continent map.

Yep, but at least these extra two side monitors are literally "extra" because they are so far to the left and right. So it's not like you're relying on looking at them every few seconds. You'd just look at them when you need the extra glance. It may even help you scope two door ways at once when you're defending a CC or something..

That's what the iPad app is for! I'll have my iPad running along next to my Gaming rig for sure! I'm really curious as to what they'll allow the public access to for creating their own Planetside 2 Apps.

i already have the monitors, and if the game allows it to look good (which they say they will - like moving the ui) then 3 monitors is going to rock... wide vision and good information.

Also you can do this with pure software, as long as you have 2 graphics cards...

im running triples,and really FPS games,dont really have it figured out yet
now iRacing has it figured out the best,by rendering 3 screens separately,with bezel correction,look up iracing vids on youtube,but it is for sure a lot more immersion

im with the guys looking for one monitor with a second for miscelaneous things like maps or chat logs.
i have an HD widescreen TV i will be running with my new computer, and i dont see a point to stretching the picture out to side monitors.

if someone had the money for 4 monitors, side by side and stacked into a square, that wouldnt distort the picture, but would probbly be cheaper to just buy a big tv.

so what exactly is the point besides "cool, why not"?

Doubt I will ever have enough money to get enough quality pieces to do this.

That would be the only thing I would do with it. Get all those pesky (but necessary) UI features out of my way.

Yeah. Having a map up all the time on a second monitor would be incredibly useful.

I already got a really big screen, having 3 of them would be overkill. :P
