A lot of Flight Sims but I do play all the "big" titles too.. Crysis, Metro 2033, Homefront, Mafia, BC2, COD, MOH, Mass Effect and other 1st person shooters as well as some RPG's and strategy stuff.

Xmen origins - Wolverine - supported, but not natively.

Modify c:\users\<username>\documents\wolverine\wgame\conf ig\wengine.ini (at the bottom the res can be set)

Hey, I am wondering about having 2 LED monitors for my sides, but a regular LCD for my middle screen.

More specifically this is my LCD:
G2222HDH

and this is the LED I want to purchase:
G2222HDL

Though the LCD version has a decent viewing angle, it is not the best though, could the LED's help with this? Would the two LED's look weird, or would it be alright? I understand that they are compatible, but I have not seen an LED monitor in person, so I really don't know if it would look whacky with the two LEDs on the side.

Also, I would purchase two more G2222HDH's from eBay, as there is a seller with a few in stock, but at $155 ($130 +$25 S/H) per monitor seems ridiculous. Another thing I like about NCIX is that they have an "Zero dead pixel" guarantee, which is only $13 for two monitors.

Well speaking from experience running 3 LCD monitors, I don't notice a problem with the viewing angles having them angled the way i do. If you are worried about it and the fact LED do offer better pictures on screen as well it couldn't hurt to go with them. The only thing you'll have to remember is that they are your side monitors, which don't get used/focused on as much as the central one so you may not actually notice that much of the perks/difference then the central one.

One a different note, got my GTx 580 3GB ordered and in the mail already. Here's hoping they get here tomorrow!

Nice on the 580, is that two, or a single one?

My order is being processed now!

Too bad it wont get shipped until Monday (probably).

That would be 2 580 3GBs, otherwise how would I be able to game on my three monitors

It was shipped already early yesterday afternoon (got the notification) and for 5$ more I went with the express shipping so likelyhood of me getting it today is increasing

Its more then likely sitting beside the hot coffee or tea that is waiting for you somewhere (provided you drink that crap)

I will be looking into some of the borderlands surround fixes as the fiancee and I are playing that together now.
