Cannot decide on some Eyefinity goodness

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Let's start with this right off the bat: I know absolutely NOTHING about monitors. I do not know what makes one better than the other, I do not know what contrast ratios, pixel pitch, or any of that other stuff means.

I just need to find three monitors that fit what I want. That's all.

Somewhere between 22" and 24" is preferable. Nothing larger than 24", and definitely nothing smaller than 20".
I'm not sure what to look for as far as resolutions go
If at all possible, keep the costs less than $200 per monitor. I have this all planned out perfectly. I don't want to increase my budget more than what it's already at!

Newegg is preferred as that is where I'm getting everything else from, but if you can find a better deal somewhere else that'd be great!

If you could explain why the monitor you've chosen is a good choice, it would be much appreciated.

This ASUS isn't bad. 2ms response time (which most people can't tell the difference between 2-8ms), decent contrast ratio, 16:9 (which can be good or bad, depending on personal preference between 16:9/16:10), LED backlight, and not bad of a price.

That's the one I was thinking of
Thanks for the suggestion.
