OK, when I get some time this weekend.

On another topic, how would you go about physically connecting multiple monitors?
I want to do something similar to this below.

Couldn't pour water out of a boot with instructions on the heel.

Do you know what Nemesis means?

I mean physically? How do you connect multiple panels to a limited amount of graphic cards?

they make 4 and 6 display port AMD cards. I assume 2 or 3 of them would work together.
Matrox also makes some splitters, but dont count on running 3d games effectively on that many cards.

Good to know. Thanks.

So the big question is, are there any bevel less Monitors coming out in the near future?

Or would I be better off getting a 4K TV like this?

Well if your going really big the higher resolution is nice. I might look for a smaller 4K PC oriented display

I ended up going with the 50" Seiki 4K. I will b interested as to how it looks. All reports so far say that it is pretty good. Just that when resolution is played at its max that you only get 30fs.

Maximum PC Magazine's latest issue has their Latest Dream Machine. Four overclocked GTX Titan Hydro Coppers and a 3840x2160 Asus PQ321 monitor.

I just picked up one of these 29" 2.35:1 monitors for the desktop on sale. 2550x1080P and chainable display ports. Now wondering about
stacking a second one on top and running 2160x2550.
