    im getting two of the above end of next week for my new build and wanted to know a bit about infinity,for this to work do you need to have 3 monitors or can it be done with two i am looking at the Samsung SM2433BW 24" Widescreen LCD Monitor and really only got the space and funds for two.if not i will have to stick with the one monitor any advice would be greatfull.

    cheers

    eyefinity - and yes, I think it can work with any number of monitors - there was a picture that AMD did with 20-30 monitors - but two should be equally possible - justy make sure the bezels are thin - there will probably be ultra-thin or triangular bezel'ed monitors (or ones where you can make adjacent monitors share a single small bezel (i.e. remove one and clip it to the next one)

    You really don't want to do this with two monitors as the bezel will be right down the middle.
