Best 3 monitor setup for gaming

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So, i'm just starting my search for a possible 3 monitor setup for gaming. I'm currently using a Samsung 27" 120Hz. I want to have the best quality I can but possibly go with 3 monitors.

If price was not an issue and you had plenty of computer to push it what would you get?



On a side note.. If my game says I can adjust my field of view up to 90 degrees and i'm running 3 monitors will I ever see more
than that 90 degrees or does it just stretch it. I really don't want a stretched screen. But, if I can see more than I can with 1 monitor it
sure seems like a nice advantage for shooters.

well step one is to make sure all the monitors are the same. Sounds stupid, but I;m paying for that one so I thought I'd mention it.

Another thing to think about is space. 3 monitor setups are BIG. You may wind up dominating a room or even making it more or less useless for anything else.

That said, if you got oodles of cash you're itching to get rid of, they do make pre made 3 monitor setups. These guys will take up to 5 grand from you for a triple screen monitor http://www.digitaltigers.com/zenview-triple-lcd-monitors.asp

I have plenty of desktop space and plenty of GPU power. I'm just looking for a possible 3 monitor package. 120Hz and about 27-30" would be nice smile.gif

Something specifically made for gaming wouldn't hurt

well the earlier link has stuff ranging down to 700$ as well. If you just want a super wide screen, LG makes these http://www.lg.com/us/monitors/discoverlgmonitors/ultrawide.jsp?cmpid=he_mnt_sem_us_+triple%20+monitor&gclid=CJuH3OLOqboCFYpDMgodgHEAPg
which are effectively double monitors. Beauty is there's no annoying edges, just one gigantic screen.

with most of the other stuff you buy a multi monitor rack, and build it yourself.
