Triple monitor suggestions

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I have been thinking about getting an upgrade for my rig, and instead of hardware I thought new monitors instead biggrin.gif
I am thinking triple setup with nVidia surround, but dont know what monitors are good in terms of bezel thickness and such.
It needs to be 23/24", lowest ms possible and smallest bezel.
It will be used for gaming mainly.
Any thoughts? smile.gif

Looks like quite a thick bezel tbh.

Have seen the Samsung md230 pretty thin bezel but high ms..

I think the Samsung monitors will have the thinnest stock bezels. For gaming it would be amazing to have 3 Samsung 120hz 2ms monitors. I just got a 27" s27a950d which is 120hz and 2ms. It's great for gaming

I was wondering if 3 of these would be good for surround. Maybe you should go with 1 big screen. The Samsung 27" s27a950d is really amazing for gaming. Then maybe you could save up for 2 more. The bezels are really small. I think you could find one for $599.

This monitor looks really good.

It's 23" 120hz, 2ms. Its about $275. It has really small bezels and looks like a good candidate for surround. I am wondering if all 3 monitors would run at 120hz while using all 3 at the same time for gaming. I'm sure they do, that would be amazing.

3 27" might be a little too big wink.gif

The bezel on that 23" does look rather small, just wondering if it will be too much when next to another.
