Are you looking at getting 3 monitors for $350 or 3 monitors for $350 each?

I'd look at the Dell S2440L monitors, they have a slim bezel which makes them good for surround gaming and they have a very high quality IPS panel with great colour quality, contrast ratio and all that jazz. Only downside being the glossy screen which a lot of people don't mind.

The Dell U2312HM is similar but is matte not glossy. For $300 each you could get some Asus VG248QE 144Hz monitors as well.

The Dell 2412m gets great reviews and is regarded as being decent for gaming although it is an IPS(better color, slower refresh). If you want a faster refresh and 120hz then you will have to look for a TN panel instead. The dell comes in at just about $300. I'm kinda in the same market, but am only looking for one monitor atm to replace my aging Dell 2405.

dont get IPS 1080, waste of quad GPUs
