NVIDIA Surround questions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm in the process of saving money to build myself a gaming/entertainment rig and I am 80% sure I want to go with a three monitor setup. I have all the components picked out except the monitors.

I was going to purchase three 27" monitors but I read in a thread on this board that 27" monitors are not as good for doing surround and eyefinity setups.. is this true?

If going with a 23-24" monitor would be the best can you recommend me the best monitor to purchase for 300-400$ each, same thing if going with a 27" doesn't matter.

Also I have another noob question but can you watch movies over the three screens just like playing video games, I plan on purchasing a blue ray burner if that is possible, if not I can save about 70-80 bucks.

Thanks!

*EDIT* Just for some added info to aid you in your suggestions, the gaming I plan on doing most would be playing SWTOR/GW2/BF3. *EDIT 2.0* Forgot to mention I'd prefer a smaller bezel for obvious reasons haha

Make sure to get GPUs with as much VRAM as you can. A 2GB GTX560Ti will do better in a Surround situation than a 1.25GB GTX570.

Other than that... small bezel, reasonable cost... Dell U2311H? Check out the nVidia Surround Gaming thread and nV Surround Club for more ideas and more input from other Surround users.
