post #11 of 18

Yeah, its really more worth it to get a good quality IPS or other panel.

Is that Dell I posted from Craigslist worth it. I see that is 1600p instead of 1400p. Is that pushing it too much? If I go with IPS, should I stay with 1440p? Plus that Dell is 30"! I play mostly FPS.

I would say your 580 should be fine with 1600p. That monitor doesn't seem to be available to purchase retail anymore but looks to be going for over 600 used on ebay and other places...so i'd say 375 is a good deal (offer 350, he'll take it thumb.gif)

heres a thread I found talking about that monitor for gaming http://hardforum.com/archive/index.php/t-1178226.html

EDIT: haha just realized that thread is from 2007!! thats an old monitor maybe look for something a little more recent

PS there is also some discussion on other forums about 1600p vs 1440p and whether or not 1600p cuts off part of your FOV...I know it was being discussed on one of the recent threads on here as well...

A 580 would be fine with one monitor, but you'd struggle to push three with just the one card.

I'm going to take that advice and go with an IPS. Fits my budget MUCH better, and I keep hearing how great games look at such high resolutions like 1440p and 1600p. I'm going to try and make a deal with the guy on Craigslist and see if he will take 300! biggrin.gif

Try to find three 16:10 aspect ratio monitors, as 16:9 looks a bit 'smashed' in Nvidia Surround.

Yes, yes, there are still good 16:10 monitors to be had!

Oh no's! You really think I should look elsewhere since the Dell is so old??? I haven't told the guy I want to buy it for sure yet.
