Bezel is 1" on the top and each side - 1.5" on the bottom.

Thank you very much. I appreciate it. Looks like I may not be getting 3 of these after all.... to much bezel....but if I overlap well enough... well we'll see when it gets here wink.gif

You're talking about 2" of bezel - to me that would be too much and overlapping to compensate may look funny. Personal preference mind you, but it would be too thick for me. I am contemplating picking one or two more Catleaps up, but I still cannot figure out the display issue even with a clean driver install. I will bring in another system (with a good GPU) tomorrow to see if it's the GTS 250 that's the problem (although I am not convinced it is since nVidia's site says it should be able to run this monitor fine.) VERY FRUSTRATING! mad.gifmad.gifmad.gif

The Catleap @ 90+hz vs the BenQ XL2420t? Would I notice much difference? I know in colors, and resolution the Catleap would be the better choice. I mean for FPS gaming, since that's mainly what I do.
