Default 3 Monitors

So I have a question... if I had a card with eyefinity could I have 3 monitors out of a game as well. Because I would like 3 monitors working together so i can have different things on all of them.


Thanks!

Yes. Eyefinity makes your computer capable of using all 3 monitors as one. Simple making it having a resolution of 1920x1080*3

Well, it's only the horizontal size that changes... so it's more like (1920*3)x1080

Unless you rotate them all 90*, then it would be 1920x(1080*3). Then again, to your computer it would be more like (1080*3)x1920
