    Hi, I have purchased everything I think/hope I need for running a capable Eyefinity setup. Please take a quick peek and tell me if I am missing anything, or if you have any advice at all. Thank you so much.
    Three of these monitors: Acer G235HAbd 23'' 5ms 1920x1080. I think I should have gotten the LED backlight ones instead.
    Two SAPPHIRE 6970's
    this adapter cable: SAPPHIRE Active Mini Display Port to Single-Link DVI

    I have a 750 watt psu, so that should cover.

    Hi Stuart

    Looks good to me, I run a 6970 in eyefinity and you wont be disappointed :) Not sure a 750w PSU is enough for two 6970's tho...pushing it a bit

    What distance do have from seat to display. I think, size of displays is to small.

    Do want to play in 3D in future?

    23" displays are too small? First I've heard that. I have an Obutto cockpit, so monitors are quite close, and adjustable.

    My rig is in the workshop and very tight for space, so I run 3x 17" 4:3 monitors on a GTOmega rig, and they are not too small :) So 23" widescreens will be plenty
