1x32 hdtv 1920x1080 vs 3x23 5760x1080

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
So here is the thing Sony Bravia Led hdtv 32'' 1920x1080(cant remember the model) with gtx 570

or triple lg e2340v 23'' for a total resolution of 2760x1080 with 590/6990/6950 cf/6970 cf

if the last one need help with gpu

prices of gpu:
570=$490
590=$1100
6950 2gb=$390
6970=$500
6990=$1100

i like nvidia better but if performance is better... i know 590/6990 will be harder to sell maby i could buy 6950's and sell them and get 7000 series or idk u tell me

EDIT: case is x900 idk if 6990 will fit
also i would overclock

There are 2 or 3 similar post just a few down from this one. I am in the same boat as you but deciding between a 37-40" tv or 3x monitors. I have poked around 4 or 5 big forums and this is what i have found out. While most people find multiple monitor setups extremely fun, many go back to 1 big monitor in the end. If your only choice is between monitors or tv then I would ask how big of a gamer you are. If your huge into FPS then I would highly suggest 1 good monitor. If your a casual gamer and don't mind a little input lag then go for a bigger tv. AVSforums has a huge list of response times in tvs. I believe Panasonic has the best. Personally I still use my 37" westinghouse monitor from 2007, but I am purchasing a 27" 2560x1600 monitor to replace it. I tried out my friends Eyefinity set up and it was fun, but once the newness wore off I felt that 1 big one would suit me better and give me a nice building block to add additional monitors later. Here is a quick list of pros and cons. I am sure I missed a bunch and people can chime in and add what they want. Really it boils down to your personal preference.

3+ monitors:
Pros:
-Great for multitasking
-Great WOW factor
-Peripheral vision in games allows for more immersion and helps in FPS
Cons:
-Requires much more gpu power (spending more on more video cards)
-Requires 3 monitors (more $)
-Majority of gaming only takes place on the middle monitor
-The Bezels. As much as you don't want to see them, they are there

Single Large Monitor:
Pros:
-Can go as big as you want with little GPU hit (minus going 2560x1500 with a 27" or 30". Still less res than 3 monitors though)
-Larger and main gaming screen. Provides larger and similar immersion gaming experience
-Cost less money than many multiple monitor solutions (plus you can always pick up more bigger monitors later down the road)
-Can be great to double as media center tv to watch movies

Cons:
-Tvs often times have imput lag
-Tvs have less pixels and can cause text to look blurry
-May have to sit further back to get correct viewing

Side note, by the time you buy all 3 and a new card your looking at ~$800 with could get you a high rest 27" monitor or a 37" tv.

Also check out http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824016155
This seems to have gotten good review and is 27" at just under $300. Its only 1080p though

I don't know where youre buying from, but those prices are ridiculous. IMO any of those cards is good for a single 1080p display, if you want to use 3 displays, grab two 6950s. the 2gb vram is necessary at that res, and the cards are plenty powerful for it

I'm using a 32 Sony Bravia model has my main screen, it's a good option, it took me a bit of time to calibrate it and set it properly, but very happy with it atm basically no screen tearing, no lag, and at 32 with some distance even the DPI doesn't look half bad granted a pc monitor looks better but it's very decent combination of price+size+quality, and doubles great has my bedroom tv.

To be honest, if price is not an issue then I would get a 30" monitor (or 3 smile.gif ).

If you've got the money go for Eyefinity and three 6950s (two 6970s if your board doesn't support TriFire).

Eyefinity will look better as it'll be a more natural kind of aspect ratio and higher ppi (pixels per inch), but of course you're going to have to tolerate the screen bezels when you're gaming.
