This is cool and all... But I still think 3D gaming and movies are just a gimmick.
And Gaming across multiple screens has been around for a very long time... it's just that now ATI and Nvidia gave it catchy names.
I never really was a huge fan of multi monitor gaming to begin with tho. I just can't get over the annoyance of the bezel. I would rather game on 1 large screen.
I do, however, enjoy having 3 screens for work :-) It makes multi-tasking soooooo much easier.

True, three monitors really are great for working. Heck, you I can easily have six docs opened at the same time and have them each in actual size display all at the same time. Works great when you have a lot of different source material your pulling from.

Nvidia 3d Vision is basically an investment for companies. E.G. Wall Street.
I just built a computer for gaming and web/video production. During my research, AMD was all about Eyefinity and Nvidea was talking 3d. I had heard of Nvidea's Surround, but had tested 3dVisoin at Frys and it sucked. The glasses made everything dim and the 3d was barely noticable. Would love to have another go at it with updated drivers and surround.
I went ahead and built my system around AMD/ATI. Got one 5850, and my next move was to buy two more 24" monitors. After reading this, Im thinking I might need another 5850 to push an acceptable framerate through Eyefinity. any thoughts?

I don't think 3D Vision Surround is ready for primetime, while I do appreciate the surprising performance in certain games, I think as games get physically more demanding with DX11 then 3D Vision Surround can't keep up, this was evident in the DiRT 2 demo where it wasn't even playable under DX11. I appreciate what NVIDIA is trying to do and I do like the fact that they can do it in 3D but I don't think it's ready.
