Originally posted by: hirata Windows XP is not supported at all, nor is eyefinity when it was. I don't think it works with 4 montiors as well.
I've read in a few other places that it works but with up to 2 monitors per card. I want 3 monitors, not 4 monitors.
So, the thing is, I love old games, but I also play new games. So I'm building a new high-end PC to be able to fully enjoy the new games on maximum graphics and 3-monitor Eyefinity. And, I want to be able to use the same PC to enjoy the old games.
But after trying to run old games on Win7 I quickly learned they're better off on XP. Some of them don't work on Win7 at all, even with compatibility mode for XP. Also, there are many old games that support Creative EAX, but EAX doesn't work on newer OS than XP.
You're telling me I can't enjoy these old games with both EAX and Eyefinity at the same time? This sucks
I hope AMD at least releases one driver for XP for R9 290X, so that I don't have to switch to the onboard graphics every time I switch to XP... Not to mention that some of these old games are actually pretty demanding and the onboard graphics is not strong enough for them
