Looking for good monitors?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am wondering if people can help me, I am looking for a 3 monitor setup, using nVidia surround gaming.

I am not interested in 3D in any way, so I guess I need something with very little side bevels and no bigger then 24" in size.

Budget is about $200 AUD each, but mainly looking for models of units.

And is there much difference in having the monitors horizontal or vertical?

If you know your stuff I don't want to patronise you.

Here is a useful link to provide background information on specifications: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/specs.htm

Good luck!

Edit: In your current budget range, I doubt you will find a smaller bezel than this.

IDK about there cost in Australia but these are good monitors in the right size and should be the price you want.

EDIT: the dude above me posted the same monitor expect it has built in speakers and mine does not.

There are a few models of this monitor, I couldn't find the one without built-in speakers on an Australian site, so that had to do. So yes, that's two responses confirming this monitor! tongue.gif

OCN would never steer you in the wrong direction haha. If you can, find the model without built-in speakers in your country! It may be slightly cheaper! I can't find the model without speakers, see here: http://www.shopbot.com.au/pp-asus-vs247h-p-price-331882.html

Good luck!

This might be it: http://www.megabuy.com.au/asus-vs247h-236-widescreen-true-led-monitor-p272949.html
However, it does not list the specifications -_-

Scratch that, this may be the winner: http://www.jpcomputersolutions.com.au/asus-vs247h-glossy-black-2ms-hdmi-300-cd-m2-ascr-20000-1-23-6-inch-widescreen-ips-full-hd-1080p-led-monitor.html

The previous one is the 5ms model, this however, is the 2ms, IPS panel, apparently...

Edit: In response to "And is there much difference in having the monitors horizontal or vertical?" it depends on what you are doing, however, you will not find a monitor with a free mobility mechanism for $200 AUD from what I can find! So either increase your budget, or go with 3x horizontal. If you're a big gamer, which I'm considering you are due to your machine, go with horizontal.

Or... Have a $600AUD budget on one large monitor, I've recently purchased the Samsung S27A950D, I hear you're not a fan of 3D, well, 120hz may benefit you in gaming with your setup. 3 screens may bottleneck with those cards having such a small VRAM Capacity. I'd consider weighing up your alternatives before jumping wholeheartedly into a $600AUD purchase.

Thanks to all I can get the ASUS VE247H 23.6" Widescreen LED Monitor for $185 AUD. thumb.gif

Roxborough I will consider my options, I have a friend who has also said that one bigger monitor with 3D would be a better option. rolleyes.gif
