Question eyefinity 2x monitors in portrait(1080p)

hey guys, i'm really new to eyefinity multi screen setups and although i have a few other purchases to make first multiple screens does intrigue me. I Am wondering if it is possible to do a 2 1080p screen eyefinity setup with both screen up on sides in portrait mode and if that oddball resultion will run any games (think it would be 2160x1920).

If not what about other resolutions like 1600 by 900 or 1920 by 1200 monitors, any resultion that will work with two screens in potrait mode or is it 3-4-6 or nothing?


appreciate some insight from you eyefinity hounds

Although it is possible i really wouldnt recommend it for games.

The center of the display is almost always the focus of the game, in your case (with only 2 monitors) your focal point would be where the two monitors meet, behind the bezels or split on either side of them. Either way it is not an ideal situation, so I'd recommend getting a third monitors

good point CM, (duheeer, took ere jers) though it might not bother me if i got one with a real skinny bezel

Damn, the step up from a dual monitor stand to a tripple is saudi oil money! but that would be ok in portrait 3240x1920? i've got to have the monitors in portrait
