Hey guys

I have a 27 inch i7 iMac, and a 32 inch Samsung external monitor. I was wondering if I could run eyefinity across the two, or if I need to have at least three monitors to make it work.

Eyefinity will work on 2-6 monitors. But seeing as to how your main screen is 27 inch while your external screen is 32 inch, it's gonna look awkward when you get it to run. Also, both monitors will need to have a common resolution or two before it will work.

Also, you won't need eyefinity for a dual monitor setup. Just set one as the main display and extend it to the other.

Thanks Billy. I will have to get three 27 inch LED displays to make it work I guess. Just for future refrence, do I need any special software for eyefinity to work?

Nope. All you need is the drivers from ATI and the Catalyst center that comes along with it to configure Eyefinity.

But my questions to you would be; - What's your primary purpose for using Eyefinity? - Do you have enough display outputs on your iMac?

You could run the setup but the different resolutions that will run will make everything weird and bad-looking . You should get a 27 inch cinema display to get the best eyefinity setup with a 27 inch iMac.
