    Unhappy How is it that it is 2016.......

    And NVidia STILL don't have proper save graphics profiles, and you have the manually switch from extended desktop to NVSurround/SLI???

    I know ultra wide gaming is fairly niche (obvious from the terrible support on new games) but I can't help but thing that life was so much easier on my old setup of 2x HD7970 cards vs my current setup of 3x GTX 980.

    I know I'm not the only one frustrated at this... but what is the consensus for triple screen gaming these days, go AMD?

    I'm not trying to start an AMD/NVidia flame war I've had both... (I did in about '96 vow to never buy another Nvidia product again after so many driver issues on a Gateway pc.. but that was many moons ago.. and obviously.. I have!)

    Hi 28BeersLater

    Nice rig !

    I drank more than 28 beers in a day once in my life and I felt like crap the next day, I've since then quit drinking.

    I don't know if I can help you with what you're commenting on but I used to run 3 way sli on a single monitor. Wouldn't connecting a gpu to each monitor give you better performance rather than using sli?

    Must console port games are not optimized for multi setup.Have you tried using NVIDIA Inspector? Amd always ruled multi monitor support,surprised it took nvidia so long for WSG. An XFX rx480 card features 6 displayports if your
    looking to switch. If your having issues running multi monitors on your nvid, try this place -

    Nate152, Yup the option in the driver is "Span displays with surround" performance wise it is ok, it appears to use SLI by default.

    My gripe is more that to flick between extended desktop (I work on this rig too) and NV surround you need to open the control panel, change the settings, close any open applications (including built in windows 10 ones like weather, films and TV etc), set the bezel compensation, activate surround, choose the bezel corrected res and close the control panel.

    To go back you need to open the control panel, select "activate all displays" then re select the display order as it always switches the middle one to the far right.

    With AMD you did a keycut from anywhere (CTRL+LShift+1,2,3 etc) and it just did it for you (Once initially configured).

    It just seems like a huge ball ache, and I can't believe its still so bad when using NVidia... hence my little rant

    (Don't get me wrong Some of the Nvidia differences are a nice.. easily availably solid SLI bridges, from experience they run cooler, consume less power, more flexibility with monitor connecting etc mine also look levely with the full cover EK water blocks and back plates.)

    sectionate, yes that's my point... most new games are aimed at consoles and have terrible support, I guess it's such a niche thing, the Nvidia team also don't have improving the interface as a priority. WSGF is pretty much a must in most cases, but it's frustrating when you have to chop about ini files and run other programs to get things to work.. - which often cause issues with the next update.

    I've not played with NVIDIA Inspector, it doesn't look like it does what I want,. but looks like a good tool anyway, thanks.
