    Excellent article, Brandon!

    I've been yearning for a multi-monitor setup for a while, and this sure does whet the appetite even more. I'll ultimately have to take the NVIDIA route as some emulators and older games I run don't cooperate with AMD too well, so I'm looking forward to dealing with that. I've only ever had multi-monitor experience with AMD up to this point.

    Sadly I wish AMD would go the route of Nvidia, but I don't think it's possible with how their drivers are written. If I remember right, the AMD Eyefinity make it look like multiple monitors instead of a single monitor like NVIDIA Surround; this makes centering a particular element like a HUD difficult if not impossible to accommodate after a game has been released.

    AMD certainly lead the way to single card multi-monitor, but NVIDIA is definatly showing they have learned from AMD mistakes and sailing forward; when AMD seems like it's still struggling to get out of the harbor as of late.
