eyefinity trio-monitor gaming/reading setup

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am planing on having an eyefinity with the 3 monitors, but i don't know what monitors to get. I do a lot of gaming on my computer and when i am not gaming i am reading so eye strain is a big thing for me but of course i don't really want to sacrifice to much in the gaming department.I am not looking for the cheapest monitors i am looking for the best that will last the longest and do what i want it to do.Thanks for the help i will check back in on the reply's in the morning going to sleep now thanks in advance.

In such a budget you have a few choices. One, you can grab an IPS panel and get the best colour quality in that budget, or you can get some solid 120 hz panels, customize the colour, and call it a day.

For reading, I find lowering the brightness and a higher refresh rate have always given less eye sore while reading on a display.

I'd suggest either the (IPS) ASUS PA238Q (the dell equivalent is also a good choice) or if you are willing to self calibrate and up the budget a bit, the (120hz) BenQ XL2410T.

However, since the resolution is going to be demanding on your 4870 (which can do eyefinity?), the best budget 120hz panel (after calibration), which is nearly the closet you'll get to a CRT (in terms of response time) in such a budget, is the ViewSonic VX2268wm. Just a quick google can find you what settings to use (in reviews). With this, you'll save a few bucks just in case you want better performance by grabbing some new GPUs.

120hz is a must if you don't want eyestrain.
sure ips panel since color and such but for gaming and reading, 120hz is the way to go, my eyes got strain as fast I shift to 60hz.

Until they make ips with 120hz, I go with 120hz any-day in spite of the difference in view angle and colors.
