Do we know when Nvidia will re-enable the image scaling?(if this beta didn't bring it back) Ever since the 400 series came out the scaling has disappeared when using HDMI(via dvi adapter). The 200 series had the option. so I'm buggered that the 400 doesn't as of right now.

I've been using them a few weeks testing the 3d Vision Surround, no problems so far other than some glitches with the surround. (E.G. ghosting on Bioshock 1, stretching in a couple titles)

Have played games as old as UT2004 and as new as Metro2033, AVP3. The level of immersion provided by 3d Vision Surround isn't really comparable to anything else in gaming, was definitely worth the investment in additional monitors.
