My Samsung 40" 720p will emulate 1080p as well, not perfect but emulating 1080p so the resolutions of both monitors match is nice.

Does anyone play Arma with 2+ monitors, if so, how do you? Side by side widescreen like or displaying stats on the other?

There's actually a mod i found somewhere that will throw up the map on your second screen and display information like where your team is and assets etc. Called Athena. I haven't tried it out yet but it's cool. on the Arma workshop in the NAK TAC/Zeus optional collection. Thought it was nifty..

I've also heard if you stick a blank 4GB or higher flash drive into a TV with 720p or lower, it will give the TV more processing power to render images at higher resolutions. i.e it'll turn your 720p into a 1080p. Supposedly it's cheaper to build all the TVs with the same parts then program them to be bottlenecked. User results may vary and some people see an improvement while others just see a placebo

That being said why dont MB mfg's consider the fact that almost every major video card is typically double wide now... so why even put PCI-e lanes that close to each other... thank fully found a pci-e extension cable moved the SB card completely off the motherboard now... short of doing water cooling on my GPU's this rig is finally completed.

There's no bridge on your SLI ?

I believe hes using an AMD processor, so he uses Crossfire X instead

yeah no SLI on twin RX580's (was even considering a hybrid of both nvidia and raedon) :) I was worried just plugging in a x1 card into a x16 slot alone cuz SB says dont do it but my MB said its allowed. only reason I dont use onboard audio is cuz it dont support dobly live encoding over spdif (which is only 2 channels so you need dolby encoded audio to use a reciever properly and keep surround sound gameplay like in arma)

if you cant tell the left photo the sound card is completely covering half the video card hence the nuclear explosion over it which was waiting to happen I had crossfire disabled till now only used that card for the 'frame stablizer' option which only uses the 2nd card minimally to keep fps level ie. picks up only if the main card gets loaded 100%

Yes, the PCIx1 is compatible with every PCI slot.
Do you saw a difference with the frame stabilizer ?

Actually it does matter if its compatible the maker of the card said its not, so its not..., I technically voided my warranty if it didnt work and would have bought the bullet on the cost if I fried it...

as for FRS there isnt a game so far that makes me lag graphics wise. I play arma on 4k/6k/8k draw distance. I went into SWTOR last night with crossfire on and it was so f'n fast I had to change it back cuz I couldnt slow down the camera/mouse movement even to be even playable anymore.
