Hello Community,
I recently built my a new computer for Rage and wondering how I should, or perhaps should not, set up eye-finity displays. Here is a summary of what I put in my computer

- Watercooled Core i5 2500k
- 2x Sapphire Radeon 6950's in Crossfire (4gb GDDR5)
- 60g SataIII vertex3 ssd
- 16gb DDR3 ram
- 2tb internal, but im putting rage on the ssd..
- 1050w power supply

...I think thats all of the important stuff. I dont know much about how eyefinity splits the workload up. I was about to buy 3 24" 1080p displays but not if my fps would not sustain at 30+.

Here is some information about rage's requirements...
Minimum System Requirements

OS: Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7
CPU: Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz or similar Athlon
RAM: 2 GB
HDD: 15 GB free disk space
Graphics: 265 MB Graphics Memory
Sound Card: DirectX 9 Compatible
DirectX: Version 9
Recommended System Requirements

OS: Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7
CPU: Core i3-550 3.2GHz or similar
RAM: 4 GB
HDD: 15 GB free disk space
Graphics: 512 MB Graphics Memory
Sound Card: DirectX 9 Compatible
DirectX: Version 9
Supported Graphics Cards:

Minimum – nVidia 8 series or above
Recommended – GeForce GTS 250 or Radeon HD 3

How does eyefinitiy distribute the workload between 2 cards? Should I get one large display over 3 separate ones? (I know this also depends on the game, but in an ideal setting give me your thoughts)

The gpu's will take turns rendering each frame. If you try to play on max eyefinity resolution, you MAY encounter some microstutter, however you won't be "lagging". The 6950's are formidable Mr.Crenshaw

Eyefinity does not change how...

Eyefinity does not change how the GPU's render which is AFR (Alternate Frame Rendering) you want to aim for 40fps -- with this being said it's not 4gb ddr5 it's 2x2gddr5

Edit: I really don't think Rage is a super demanding game.

I through in a couple more cents about AFR lol

keep in mind the link is 6870's. The 6950's are easily 20% more powerful..

edit: My systems are up, I'm doing my job :)
