Hi,

I have 3 HD monitors in a 3 monitor setup.

When I use all 3 monitors, the icon size on monitor 2 (center monitor) is off a little, stretched out kind of thing.

The resolutions are all correct.

I am using AMD Catalyst Contol Panel too.

Any ideas?

Ideally since i have 3 ports out of my graphics card (DVI, HDMI, and Display Port) does it matter what monitor it goes too?

I have my main 27" in the center and 2 23" left and right of my 27".

The 27" inch is a  SyncMaster P2770HD, and the 23"s are SyncMaster B2330

Ok, I have some screen shots.

So, left to right 23", 27" 23"

On the correct settings order is 1-"27, 2-"23, 3-23"

See the screen shot from my 27 where the icons do to the bottom?

Then on the incorrect, I changed it to make the 27 monitor 1 in the middle and see how the icons are there with my arrow notation?
