Once you start surround gaming - you never go back!

@ontariotl: Can you send us a link to the exact adapter you're using? I'm still having trouble sourcing an active DP to DVI that isn't from the US... Let us know! Awsome pics!

If you can change the FOV(field of view) in any of those games you should. Look at the map on the last pic, that should be round.

BF2 has been FOV corrected already, but the map and text are still screwed up. Its a little wierd at first but I dont stare at maps too long....I'm too busy killing......or dying.

That G25 looks hot, wonder who's it is :P I'm just jealous though, it looks sick. NFS looks extremely good.

Well I checked where I ordered it from and they are out of stock again. These things are hot right now. There are no sites that carry this item in Canada. With my order I only had to pay taxes, no duty when it came across the border.
Accell UltraAV DisplayPort / DVI-D Dual-Link Adapter, 10" - B087B-002B, $108.95

It was a little more expensive than the Dell adaptor but I did get overnight shipping with Fedex (thank god for no UPS) so it was a costly investment. Its a good thing I had an email sent to me that it was back in stock or I probably would have missed out.
Even Dell has back order isssues as I had my buddy order one for me almost 2 weeks ago and now just got it yesterday. I couldn't wait any longer. So I will have a spare in a few days, it is spoken for in another forum, but if it falls through, it will be going up here for sale amongst other things.

Ahhh yes, thanks JMCD for the use of your G25! I'll eventually have to go back to my Momo wheel

I don't know if you want to try out my set up the next time you are over....your wallet may just get lighter. I take no responsibility!
