asus 144hz monitor gaming with 3 of them...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok guys right now i have an asus 144hz 27in monitor... i want to add two more for gaming. Would there be a difference if i went with the new asus 144hz 24in monitors on the sides? Or should i stay with the same 27in all around... the 24in are alot cheaper..would there be a picture difference between the 24 vs 27? I do have dual 670s what do u guys think:)

The benefits of 120Hz looks best if you can maintain 120fps. Adding two monitors can slow down your framerate to being no better than a 60Hz monitor (except with slightly less input lag).

Also, have you ever tried 120Hz LightBoost on your 144Hz ASUS?

Stick with the same size. The 24" will have a higher pixel density than the 27" middle one and might throw you off (side monitors will have same res but physically smaller).

Also it's sometimes a pain to setup surround with different monitors.

Good luck and enjoy!

Can u fill me in on the 120 Hz light boost? Never heard of it... i would love to stay the same size but theres a big price difference between the 27in and the 24in.

Should i just go with a higher res monitor?
Right now my build is a 3770k with 1000watt power supply. Sli msi gtx 670 oc edition with 16gb of ram

I wouldn't bother with surround if you're going to use 24" side monitors. Again the resolution will be same but the pixel density will be higher. So everything on the side monitors will be smaller than your main.

It's all preferences so go with whatever you want/like. Every monitor has their pros and cons so you need to figure out if the monitor has more pros than cons for your use.
