Hello,

I was hoping someone could answer a couple of questions about Eyefnity. I am currently using Nvidia but will switch to ATI in a heartbeat if I can accomplish what I want to do. Basically, I want to play an MMO (Wildstar) across 2 monitors. Nvidia's Surround does not allow me to do this. So, that leads me to my first question...

Can you run only 2 monitors with Eyefinity? From what I can tell by searching Google, the answer is yes.

Here is the catch; I would like for the 2nd monitor to only extend my peripheral vision. I don't want the border going straight down the middle of the game. Below is a picture of what I am going for. You will notice that instead of splitting the game down the middle it has only extended the peripheral vision.

So this leads me to my 2nd questions. Assuming I can run a game on only 2 monitors, is there a way to make it extend just the peripheral area?

All help is much appreciated.

Both AMD and NVIDIA support 2 panels spanned ascross as one lage display.

In control panel for the monitor, you should be able to see an option to extend the display.

No, nvidia does not support just 2. It requires a minimum of 3 monitors.
