    no it works man, i got all three running great, im referring to whats called "eyefinity" its when all three monitors act as one, for instance you have one image and it stretches across all three screens...alot of gamers have it set up on their pcs and although i dont game much at all i thought it would be cool to play some of my favorite games in an eyefinity setup since i just installed a bootcamp partition as well.

    This is an ATI graphics technology. Mac's have been able to set all monitors as one for quite along time. However, I think the gaming apps have to be written to take advantage of this.

    Here's a discussion you could find interesting over on the Apple support site. I found it, and many others simply by googling "eyefinity mac".

    thanks ill check it out now, i been googling, the problem i been running into has been i cant seem to find anyone trying to do eyefinity with an imac AND two thunderbolt screens, their usually just regular screens and i heard that thunderbolt might not be compatible for whatever reason, thats why im trying to find confirmation as to wether this is true or not
