So at around $650, I don't think its worth the cost of admission unless you are doing something like flight sims (which I am doing on this rig) where three screens are actually awesome, needed AND cool! :)

Awesome and cool, yes. But needed? Nah. Flight sims work great on one large screen with TrackIR.

While I suppose it looks kind of cool I can't really see much benefit to running a 3rd person game across three screens like that. Everything looks kind of stretched out too.

I am playing SWTOR (as third-person) across three screens and its pretty cool. The left and right screens are a bit warped, but its not too bad.

The only real problem is that its kind of expensive to get something like this going. I am using screens that cost ~$150 each plus a ~$200 video card. So at around $650, I don't think its worth the cost of admission unless you are doing something like flight sims (which I am doing on this rig) where three screens are actually awesome, needed AND cool!

Of all the colors in the world, why would you make a graph with three shades of blue and one red...

"Nobody wants to be nobody in America. Ed is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is its own virtue.
