Hi Guys, I'm about to pull the trigger on 3 x Dell Ultrasharp LED IPS 23" Monitors U2312HM

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/23-dell-ultrasharp-u2312hm-led-ips-monitor-dvi-vga-displayport-1920x1080-10001-300cd-m2-4-port-usb

I was just wondering what you thought of these for an eyefinity setup?

Also, Im thinking of upgrading to a 2gig 5870 which will cost me about £50 after selling my current card, do you think its worth the hassle and cash for the extra 1 gig Vram? (as I understand it, Vram is at a premium at these high resolutions and I cant really afford a 6XXX card and those monitors atm)

I was planning to sit on my current GPU until the 8XXX series cards come out, but it seems eyefinity has put an end to that notion! looking at some of the awsome setups in this thread, I've now got my heart firmly set on eyefinity!

Those are the newer model of what I have great screens for any purpose colour on them is great. Some people complain of ghosting on ips screens but I've not noticed it really myself. The one gripe I do have with them is they dont have the smallest bezels which is something worth considering in an eyefinity setup. My house mate has some cheap LG TN panels that have half the bezel on them.

depending on what games your running Vram can become a very real bottleneck in an eyefinity system and its well worth investing a bit extra to get a 2gb card. Eye 6 cards also mean you can run all your cards off the same output type avoiding problems with some odd tearing issues that can happen when you mix display connector types.

Thanks for the info, i didnt know about any issues with mixing display connections, ill have to check the card i was looking at is an eye 6 card... Using my phone on a train at the moment so browsing can be hard work!

From what ive read 8ms gray to gray is an acceptable speed for gaming, ive not experienced an 8ms monitor, but im hoping ghosting wont be too bad.

As for the thicker bezels, I used a screen size calculator online and calculated the size of a 23" 1920 x 1080 screen and then subtracted that from the given dimensions of the monitor, giving me the bezel size x 2.... The u2312 actually came out quite favourably, have i gone wrong somewhere here? Ive been using this method to try and help choose my next monitors as its quite difficult buying online without seeing the product first! I totally agree that bezel size is an important factor, especially for eyefinity!!

When i get home later today ill post the dimensions ive been using to work this stuff out.

im not sure about the newer model and my current ones are not bad by any means but they also do not have the thinnest bezels i've come across. wouldn't worry about it too much just a heads up, see if you can get to see one in person somewhere first.

The mixed display connector problem may well have been fixed by now, I was a very early adopter so for me it was a concern, would actually be somewhat surprised if it hadn't been ironed out by now best to ask someone in a position to have experienced it.

by the by my eye 6 cards are up for sale for a decent offer, put them up on the for sale section here may be a little high but might be able to move the price a bit, how much were you looking to spend?

Still trying to find some games to play, adding to my growing collection of course. I'm also looking for some new and better wallpapers (not that i don't like Final Fantasy XIII). But I'd rather make something out of Devil May Cry... just not sure with what.

Switched to red from green (2x EVGA GTX460 768MBs) solely for the purpose of Eyefinity though! Planning on adding another card in the future though. Any suggestions what I should get to Xfire or just get the same one?

You can now count me in! biggrin.gif 3 Dell U2312HM's powered by a pair of 2gb 5870's in crossfire... errmmm... lol... no pics of the inside of my case tho, because to be quite frank its embarrasing! rolleyes.gif... lol... no room for my pump in there anymore (I cant even get the side door closed!) and this case just does not allow for any kind of cable management, no worries tho, these cards are super cool and super quiet with nice aftermarket coolers wink.gif
