Default eyefinity setup build

Working on my eyefinity setup to push three monitors.

Currently I have 2 (working)samsung 2343bwx monitors with a resolution of 2048x1152.
Just ebayed another one non-working and ordered a power supply for it.
Still need to order a powered(active) display-port to dvi adapter because non-powered adapters do not support a resolution of higher then 1920x1080, eyefinity resolution of 6144x1152

Computer specs:
Intel core 2 duo 2.66Ghz overclocked to 3.2Ghz
4gb ram at 1060 overclock for motherboard under for ram
MSI p35 platinum motherboard
XFX 5870 1gb
Also seeking a desk but might use a table till a stable desk become available.
In time will make a all-way mount allowing full rotation and sliding of monitors to allow 6144x1152 long or 3465x2048 tall

pics:

--new case, and a generic 5.1 sub to the right

WOW! i thought my wife was giddy when she got her dual monitor set-up @ work.

she'd be like that cat that ate the canary, if she could swing that @ her place.


keep us updated on how it all comes together.

pics of the non-working monitor and why it was not working

power supply


close up of the bad spot, looks like a chip overheated on the other side

upgrading sound to a JVC 1200watts 5.1, going to run optical audio to best sound quality

Finally had some extra money.
Got a JVC TH D60 5.1 1200watts sound system setup with optical connection.
Ordered an power active display port to dvi adapter due to the max resolution of passive adapters is only at full HD.
Should have some some pics soon of 3 monitors in action.
