Best Budget Monitors for 3-Way Eyefinity? (Thin Bezel Preferred)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am looking to build an eyefinity setup and hoping to find nice deals on the monitors for Black Friday but I'm not sure which monitors will work best for this scenario.

- 23"-24" Monitors Preferred

- $150 or less for each monitor


Here are the ones I came across on Newegg:


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236117 --> ASUS VH238H for $129 Each

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824001487 --> Samsung S23A300B for $139 Each

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009315 --> Acer S230HLAbii for $119 Each

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009266 --> Acer G235HAbd for $109 Each


What do you think? Are any of these the best option in the price range or are there others that would be better?

Thanks for the help!

Looks decent but 21.5" is a bit too small for me.

Any more suggestions?

Avoid Acer S230HLAbii. I have an Acer S231HLbid and bought the S230HLAbii thinking it was the same but it isn't. The bezel is thicker, height is shorter, and the colors looked washed out compared to my S231HLbid. I suggest what I have, the bezel are think and looks great.

Ah, its priced $159 but I was able to buy it for under $150 before. Its on sale sometimes so if you're patience maybe you'll find it in your price range.

Go for three of these  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009255

 

Reason being: they have DVI, HDMI and D-SUB which is good to setup Eyefinity. Monitors you selected in you post above mostly limited to D-SUB + DVI and D-SUB + HDMI.

 

Eiter way if your monitor doesn't have native DisplayPort you will need to buy an Active Adapater DVI Single Link to DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort. Depends on if your card is using Mini DisplayPort or DisplayPort.

 

Buy the adapter validated by AMD to guarantee Eyefinity to work correctly. http://support.amd.com/us/eyefinity/Pages/eyefinity-dongles.aspx
