U2711 or U2211h x3?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey, I have been looking around for quite some time and have decided that I will buy an IPS monitor for my future build. I plan to go with either a single u2711 or 3 smaller monitors from dell(either u2211h or u2311h).

My question is: what would be better for playing games such as BF3, SC2 and mmo's?

I would probably set the 3 smaller monitors up in portrait mode since I don't have a lot of desk space, so would SC2 even be viable in this setup?

I am in no rush to pick up one of these displays as I am waiting for them to go on sale again in Canada(hopefully before the new ones come out).

I appreciate any help.

sc2 wont run on eyefinity/surround, 1440p is max i think due to multiplayer restrictions and fairness.

Ahh ok, I was wondering about eyefinity with starcraft. Even if it was possible, it would probably look weird. Thanks for the info +rep

Guess I'll be waiting around for the next sale or for the new u2712 to come out.

if you wait for the led ones the 2711 might get cheaper

Keep an eye on the Online Deals section. 25% off deals happen every few months. The U2713 won't be out for a while. The smaller IPS models are being refreshed later this year, but not the 27" and 30" screens.
