Need help figuring out which route to go for a triple monitor display.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Right now, I game on a 24" 1920x1200 Acer. I've decided on setting up an Eyefinity setup, but am banging my head up against the wall of what option to choose for monitors. I can go for 3x 23" 1920x1080 (total cost: $420), 3x 24" 1920x1080 (total cost: $540), or 3x 24" 1920x1200 (total cost: $900). Edit: There is the 23.6" route, which does fall between the first two price wise. So that is an option as well.

I just don't know where the right plateau is for value. I'm afraid if I go for the cheapest, 3x 23" solution, I'll feel it's too small for when I do non-Eyefinity gaming (which will be probably 50%+ of the time). Same with the 3x 24" 1080p solution. But the third 24" solution comparable to what I have now, is just so much more money. Just looking for a little bit of input from people who may have had experience with some of these setups. Thanks.

go 3 x 120hz, at either 23" / 23.6" / 24" (not much of a difference IMO), or if you feel like dropping a lot of cash 3 27" Samsung 120hz monitors.

Depends on your cards. Most setups cannot push 120fps avg, much less 60fpsavg in real hard man games anyways so 120hz panels are sort of wasted.

27" monitors at 1920x1080 have way to high of a pixel pitch for my tastes. And sadly, 27" monitors at 2560 x 1440 are $900 each. Don't have the $2700 to drop on this project frown.gif

Right now, I'm on a single GTX480. The current plan, is to pick up a 6970 during the great sell-off, when everybody upgrades to a 7970 over the next month. If that's not enough, pick up a second one down the road, and just crossfire 6970's.
