It sounds like you have eyefinity multi-display turned on in the catalyst software actually, if you do turn it off.

This totally fixed the issue! Thanks!

I haven't used the duplicate setting in a long ass time, but I've been trying to show PC games off to some friends of mine recently. However, when I have a m/kb game I need to see on both my monitor and the tv I have, using the "Duplicate" setting, which should show the same image on both screens instead stretches the screen in a weird way. It works perfectly find when I use the Extend setting, but for some reason it's not letting me duplicate. For reference, here's how the desktop looks like when using extend:

And this is what it looks like when using duplicate:

So it makes any game I try to run look super wonky. Duplicate should just show the same image on both screens, but instead it's stretching it. Also note that in the extend shot I just put up two different windows of GB -- it's not duplicating, since you see the start button on one side of the screen but not the other.

For reference I'm using an ATI Radeon HD 7870 with Windows 7 and an Intel i5 4670. Both screens are plugged into the video card.

@coribald: I based my Tweet on Jeff trolling. That said, I fucked up.

That doesn't even make sense. Jeff tweets Dan and Jason are joining IGN, you tweet they are joining GB. I mean, I get that it's part of the gag, but come on

Jeff congratulated them on their new positions. He said nothing about IGN. Mods must've not seen the picture/jumped the gun.

This is about as interactive as the Uncharted games, so I I'm certain the game will sell millions of dollars.

Thanks guys!

Is it at all possible to install Windows 7/8 on the thing without a disc drive? I don't think a disk drive is really worth getting for any other reason, really.

Edit: The Windows 8 Upgrade version works on a fresh install, right? I don't see any other version.

Thanks, I'll go ahead and give him the okay. So the processor will work fine for a while?

This is what I have so far:

CPU - Core i5 3570K

Motherboard - Gigabyte Z77-UP4 TH

RAM - Corsair XMS3 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3

Hard Drive - Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB

Graphics Card - XFX Radeon HD 7870 Core

PSU - Coolermaster GX650

OS - Windows 8 Pro

Display - ASUS VH236H

Keyboard - Nighthawk-X8

Case - Antec P280

Based on this initial build. He had a laptop before this, so all he has is a mouse. The current total, looking at Newegg, TigerDirect, and Amazon, comes to $1,239. Maybe a little more. We're wondering if he should step up to a more future-proof CPU. He is also interested in getting an SSD instead of an HDD, but he isn't sure if it's worth the money. With Steam, he would be able to install and uninstall games to mediate the space so he was thinking of buying a 120GB SSD for about $100 to store the OS, games, and applications and 500GB HDD to store other stuff. He mostly streams music and we have more than enough devices to play DVDs and Blu-Rays so he opted to let the Disk drive go. He also plans on doing some game development on it. I just wanted recommendations from you guys. He wants to keep the total (minus monitor/keyboard) under $1000.
