Find me a 27" (2560x1440) + two 24" (1920x1080) monitors for under $1,000!

The 24's will be for RDP sessions, movies so no need for IPS or anything crazy. If you can find a good triple monitor mount/stand that will fit into the budget that'd be awesome as well!

P.S. I'd prefer to buy from Newegg as they don't charge me tax and shipping is either free or minimal.

How about a single good 27 inch 2560x1440 monitor?

What would be the rational for that? I don't game much at all so I don't need a high quality $800 IPS monitor. I basically want to have one monitor to do the majority of my work in and 1-2 other displays for remote desktop sessions (meaning graphic quality is all but irrelevant).

Was thinking more that 2560x1440 gives you 40% more work space then 1920x1080

I'd drop the money on two 27" monitors.
I'd consider 1440p ($600/monitor at the lower end puts it slightly over your budget, but if you're considering working on them, it really sharpens up smaller text and the like.

But 60% less than dual 1080p monitors wink.gif

Well two 27's vs. three 24's is basically saying two 2560x1440 displays vs. three 1920x1200 (I can't go back from 1920x1200 to 1920x1080) displays. That's the decision I have to make.

I see. I didn't realize all 27's were that expensive, I guess that kind of makes up my decision for me then frown.gif.

No, no, no.. 27" 1440p's are $600/monitor at the lower end, I am sure 1200p or 1080p is much cheaper!

Thanks for clearing that up. $1,000 really is a hard budget I've already just dropped like $1,500 on a new server and NAS parts so I just don't have the funds left to exceed $1,000 on displays. Are there smaller than 24" displays that do 1920x1200? Maybe I could put two smaller (like 22"?) on either side of a larger display in the middle even if they just do 1080p? Afterall I'm basically just using the ones on the outside for RDP sessions.

If you have a 24" 1200p monitor now, I'd get a second to match that (assuming they're still in production) then buy a single 27" for the centerpiece - you could possibly even afford a 24" 1200p monitor and a 27" 1440p monitor!
