Default 4th monitor question

Hey guys,

currently running an eyefinity set up that runs at 5760x1080. Obviously all monitors are running at 1920x1080. Thinking of adding a 1680x1050 monitor on a wall mount for IM, movies, gauges etc.

My question is, if I add a 4th monitor that is NOT 1080p, will it skew the resolution I have now and force eyefinity, into going into some "best fit" resolution?

Thanks.

No you won't need to scale anything. Just use display groups, one for the eyefinity group at 5760x1080 and the other for 1680x1050. This can easily be configured in CCC.

Yep this is all you need to do, when you first plug the monitor in it might change your other monitors resolution but yo can just manually set that back and create groups.
