Single IPS vs. Triple (what I assume is) TN Monitors?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

IPS -


Triple setup -
Money isn't the main concern, but it's somewhat of a concern. Mainly, I'd like to know if the quality from the IPS panel would be so much greater, that it would offset an Eyefinity setup (probably in portrait, I don't play a lot of FPS games). Also, I'm open to suggestions for different monitors.

Any suggestions/pictures/explanations are appreciated.

I suggest you buy two of these

(they are IPS) and buy a third one later down the road.

Any specific reason for that one? I was generally looking for the 23-24 inch range, I forgot to mention that.
If it's better for the cost, though, I can see where you're coming from.

I was suggesting that one because it is IPS, and that way you can go multi monitor (though only 2 at the same budget) right off the start. If you really want triple monitors, the cost is not going to be that bad.

Mainly I recommended it because it's a cheap IPS monitor. That way you don't have to give up multi monitor workspace for IPS, or vice versa.

No other reasons.

If money isn't a much of a concern get 2 of these

. Should only cost you about $60 more than the 3 asus monitors.
