I am getting a GTX 680 when NCIX gets the next shipment in.

I would imagine it would be able to drive the BenQ at 120Mhz and the others at 60Mhz all in NV surround but am not sure?

If I wanted to do 3d that would be the benq only although it would be very cool if it could do the center in 3d and the two peripheral as normal. That would be far beyond my expectations though.

just a heads up for people. Was considering ordering from the US benq site as I have a US mailing address in Blaine.

They won't allow you to order from the US site unless you also have a US credit card that matches the shipping address. So can't do that. Would have been nice to spend 499 instead of almost 100$ more at NCIX.

My System Specs


120Mhz monitors require double the fps of 60Mhz... so take the benchmarks for the 680 and anything in which it scores under 60fps will be wasted on on a 120Mhz monitor. A quick google search for "nvidia surround requirements" will show you that you cannot mix a 120Mhz monitor in with a couple 60Mhz for surround...

"All displays must have a common resolution, refresh rate, and sync polarity" - Nvidia surround requirements.
"All displays must be the same make and model 3D Vision-Ready projectors." - Nvidia 3D surround requirements.

The ONLY potential option you have without tri 120Mhz monitors is it might be possible (but I don't think so) to have 2 accessory monitors and the 120Mhz for all gaming uses.

Guess I may end up looking more seriously at my other consideration which was to go with a 27inch 2560*1440 as the main gaming monitor and using one of my current monitors as my accessory/web browser.

Or winning the lottery so I can buy three new monitors...

Just wrote up some impressions of this monitor as well as the Samsung A950/A700 and Asus VG236H panels on overclock and thought you guys might be interested.
