    ...Can folks start posting up some bezel widths for their monitors?

    Another thing to make choices harder :p

    Also if OCUK could add these to the product descriptions that would be pretty great too.

    Latest musing suggest that that you will need a monitor with a display port input for triplehead and a simple DP to DVI convertor will not work, only a rather more expensive 'active' one


    And from the ATI Eyefinity page
    "Driver version 8.66 (Catalyst 9.10) or above is required to support ATI Eyefinity technology and to enable a third display you require one panel with a DisplayPort connector."

    This could put a major spanner in the multi-screen works. I'm hoping it's going to be simpler (and cheaper) than it's beginning to sound.

    I'm hoping it's going to be simpler too.

    I'm planning on getting a 5850 and two more Saumsung 2443s, which only have VGA and DVI...

    EDIT - Techpowerup forums' W!zzard suggests that the only reason one must be displayport compatible is because one gfx card can only have 2 x DVI outputs. If this is the case, then a simple adapter should be all that's needed.
