Recs for eyefinity 1440p vertical (small bezels) 80hz+, and stand

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I currently have a catleap and its a great single monitor experience. I realize that 2x 7970 ghz editions will not be enough to power 3 1440p monitors in eyefinity in most games at max settings, but i think its best to start with th emonitors.

What monitor PLS or IPS is best for this setup now? My catleap is 1.5 years old and it has large bezels so i'd have to replace it.

Things i'm looking for recs for:

-at least 80hz
-smaller bezels that I wont have to mod (the smaller the better)
-Need a stand that will do 27" vertical
-Must be 1440p

If I recall correctly, at least one monitor must be Displayport so if they came with that option, that would really help. My 7970s only have one Dual link DVI, 2 mini DP and one HDMI.

Thanks in advance

I use this monitor at my desk at work, and it was great. thinking of buying one for my desk at school. reading through the comments, i guess you can set custom resolutions some how, and there was one person who said he runs it at 75hz, but i personally can't tell the difference.

Well, you got a few problems...

- The monitors with display port don't overclock.
- All of the Korean 1440p monitors have fat bezels, you have to debezel them if you want a good eyefinity setup.
- Just buy an HP or Dell stand for $15-30 off eBay. Better yet, just buy a triple monitor desk mount.

Qnix QX2710 or X-Star DP2710 are the only options for overclockable 1440p monitors, but you have to debezel them if running eyefinity..

Thanks for the info. Damn, was hoping there was a smaller bezel option on one of the overclockable korean monitors.

Anyone use a good, decently priced triple monitor option?
