    Only issues is the frame hitching/stutter that happen randomly with newer drivers. Aside from that. Never crashed.

    I just installed that, rebooted, tested mortal kombat X, nba2k16 and leo┬┤s fortune. In Soma I already gave up and uninstalled... same stuttering.

    There is definitely something weird going on with flash acceleration. I get a lot of stutters which last for a few seconds when changing to full screen and vice versa in youtube and twitch, crashes are very rare though (plugin crashes at that). Other weird thing is that running flash stream or video on background totally fixes stuttering in Mortal Kombat X... learnt that trick when some guy a couple of years ago found that doing this fixed black textures in warhammer space marine, took nvidia no less than six months to fix that via driver as usual :giggle2:

    Same here and I've been running it at 4K native resolution. No more DSR.

    The biggest issue I have is with surround 2d.
    Everytime I turn my computer off, I have to redo my triple monitors. Half the time my 4th monitor doesnt work. Also some games hud and crosshair are on my far left monitor even though my center monitor is set as #1.
    Im already regretting getting 970 sli for 3x ultrawides.
    Its been a horrible experience already.
    Honestly my HD 7950 crossfire setup I had last with 3 monitors was awesome and never had an issue.
    Im pretty damn disappointed in nvidia with their surround support. Its garbage.

    That's one thing I can say hand on heart, AMD is worlds ahead with Eyefinity than NVIDIA is with Surround

    I don't have any issues with surround disabling itself on boot, but definitely had a better experience with Eyefinity than I have with Surround

    Not to mention the fact that NVIDIA blatantly ignores you when you inform them of surround bugs (Yes Manuel I'm talking to you)

    This is what I learned the hard way. I have been reading about it on the nvidia forums.

    Im seriously about to sell these 970s at a loss just to get 2 R9 290s or a R9 295x2.

    Plus the 290s will do better at higher res.
    Im playing at 7680x1080

    I play at 6040x1080, but I wouldn't go back to AMD just for Eyefinity, the Pros of being with Nvidia outway the Pros of having a better MultiMonitor experience IMO, but that's personal choice, I was with AMD for decades, wouldn't go back now

    But I'm not planning on sticking with Surround for much longer, I want a nice wide, 1440p LCD next, even when I was using Eyefinity, I was getting a bit sick of having 3 screens

    For desktop, it's great having all the real-estate, but for gaming it's not all smooth running on either team, red or green

    Some games just outright refuse to work with 3 way, others do weird things like Star Wars putting the scope on the left screen when you aim, and 90% of games that do work with 3 way, stretch the living sh1t out of everything on the side screens, playing things like BF4, at certain angles you cr4p your pants thinking an enemy is 2ft away, when you spin to shoot, he's on the other side of the map lol

    Honestly, the experience I had on AMD with eyefinity was very pleasent. Im not biased to either side. Im not one who gives any craps about physx, game works. Only thing I like nvidia has is shadowplay. I refuse to use raptor. I had a R9 290 up till may of this year. I play a crap load of racing games, and the triple monitor is where the gravy taste best for it. Most games that I play I dont have much issues except for Ubisoft games and old Unreal 3 based games. But there are a ton of fixes out there for multi monitor anyways.

    I get hitching in a number of games, sometimes they can play well and then the hitching will come back, it's pretty random tbh. Latest drivers seem pretty good so far though touch wood.

    Yea I had a good Eyefinity experience too, games just feel smoother with Nvidia, better optimised, also had a 290, great card, ran 3 way really well

    Yea, there are things like flawless widescreen etc, I kinda just want to go back to the ease of a single screen setup again, load the game, set the rez, done, not load the game, realise the menus are somewhere under the bottom of the screen, close the game, look for the config file to edit the rez, or disable surround then have to load it up on a single screen, or find the fix from a 3rd party etc etc

    I`ll probably keep a couple of screens for desktop use, but for gaming I just want a nice wide single screen again

    Honestly, that is what I did for a while. Had 1 25 inch Ultrawide with 2 5:4 17 inch monitors on the side for extra desktop space. Just gamed on 1 monitor. Worked great with my GTX 670 4gb sli. I dont mind setting games etc to get them to work, I just have zero patience for the software for the gpu to not do its job for handling 3 monitors for gaming.

    I've ended up gaming back on just the centre 1080p LCD atm, was OK with 8.1, but since upgrading to 10, surround for desktop use is horrible, and switching between extended and surround every time I want to game is a PITA, not to mention when I switch back to extended, all my icons are shifted randomly across different screens to where I left them

    Also I disconnect one screen to connect my telly now and then, with AMD, I could have Eyefinity enabled and just unplug one screen, and connect the telly, and it would automatically switch from Eyefinity to extended - with Surround, it does all sorts of retarded things, sometimes it doesn't know Ive disconnected a screen, and leaves half a desktop, other times it switches surround to the telly, or just does nothing at all for ages, then switches to extended after I've given up and reconnected the LCD to disable surround

    So now I just decided that unless it's gonna be a long gaming sesh with a game that really needs surround immersion, I just game on one screen

    No problems here, you should have also made the poll public so we can see who's voting.

    I have a feeling the red graph is bigger than it should be. Just a hunch.

    I'm surprised the 'blue graph' is not the largest.

    win7 x64: all good. Don't really have anything to complain, since they fixed Kepler performance in games such as Witcher 3.
