Need opinions on my build.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone, I'm looking for some different perspectives on a quad monitor setup. I just picked up 3 displays with wall mounts and was thinking of adding another display above them but I don't really know what I would use it for. I already use the left for a chat, right for a video and middle for gaming. I've thought that I could use them in an nvidia surround setup but pushing 3 way 4k is super hard and I would need to rebuild my pc and even then I would not get a solid framerate. The alternative is to play in 3 way 1080p and use the above display for videos or my secondary pc. 

 

I'm also curious if there is a macro for enabling and disabling nvidia surround. I'm pretty sure I used to do that with my AMD setup a couple of years ago but I haven't had a surround setup yet.

Oh I was asking more for the display portion of the build, I already have a pc. If I do anything to the pc I'm going to get a new motherboard and another titan x but the rest is solid. I'm considering getting another screen to go above the tripple wide but it's totally overkill, just looking for opinions. 

 

This is my setup now, just imagine a 70 inch above these, that's what I want to do. Also that glass desk under the displays will be gone once I mount shelfs behind them and can hid everything. There won't be any cables hanging down at all when I'm done. I'm still waiting on parts from amazon.
