Two monitors for triple display or 1440p monitor

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ive been looking to get another monitor, I currently have a Asus vg24qe and have been looking to try out both 1440p and triple monitor game play. I currently have about $450 to spend. So the question is get a 1440p ( ive read that some of the Korean panels are actually very nice) or get two decent 24" 1080p pannels.

The only thing im worried about if i get 3 monitors is I don't think I can stream when playing a game on all 3 monitors. I've heard it does not scale well at all. So throw your opinions at me! let me know what you think. Also any ideas on 1440p or deacent 1080ps that will go well with my asus vg24qe let me know!

Well, if it is just gaming, I'd go for the 1440p monitor unless you also do a bit of work where those three screens will help. When streaming you can always just revert back to 1920x1080 because as you said, streaming on 5760x1080 will become a headache

It really depends on the person using it, and although I haven't used an 1440p monitors, I can say I do greatly enjoy my surround setup.

also my 7970 should be fine if i do decide to go with either of these choices correct? I would have to upgrade or xf would I?

I'd get the two 24"s you're looking at. After using two monitors for so long I don't think I could go back to one, let alone recommend someone else use just one. thumb.gif

It really depends on what you play, if you plan to use Eyefinity with BF4 you're going to be struggling for framerates. Actually, from the BF4 Alpha benchmarks, most single GPU cards are struggling to get 50 FPS average on 1080P.

BF3 will probably be fine with your 7970 on either a 1440P panel or Eyefinity. BC2 is a bit laggy in surround with a GTX 670 for reference.

Definitely don't waste your time with an eyefinity set up.

Get a 1440p monitor that overclocks to 96-120Hz (Link) to complement your 1080p 120Hz monitor.

You will then be living a life of having the best of both worlds.
