Btw, these Dell 1200 Ips w/ pivoting bases are pretty inexpensive preowned. I picked up the first three new for ~$260 and the other two preowned for ~$200 a piece. One more for 3x2.....
....... but I don't like the horizontal bezel
You can do 5x1 and 3x2 w/ smaller monitors. There's guys running more then three sub 1080 monitors.
You're monitor setup looks so friggin sick bro. I can't bring myself to put spoilers around that beauty
I don't necessarily need a Korean PLS, i just don't know a ton about monitors and they seem to be popular. I know the Overlord PCB's are like 200bux a pop. That's pretty expensive on top of a monitor. I was under the impression that all of the K-Monitors are "capable" of 120hz. But it's another silicon lottery. 120hz K-Monitor is like a Golden CPU. Most of em go to ~96hz so that seems to be what people hope for when they order em. I've seen some people in the Korean Monitor thread that have gotten duds that can't even clock to 96. Also the "Pixel Perfect" situation seems to be a bit of a lottery too. I think i remember reading that a Pixel Perfect label still allows for like 3-5 dead pixels.
I've never checked out the Yamakasi Catleap PCB's, but even the Tempest Website has a disclaimer that the pcb is only guaranteed to give you 96hz.
I'm trying to be at the point in my build where most of my reckless spending is behind me. So i'm really really really hoping not to spend another 1500-2000 on monitors in the near future. Also my tv died again yesterday and i had to take it apart and fix the fan.......again. I'm so sick of this Sony SXRD Rear Projection. I'm even considering just getting a nice tv and a single monitor since i live in a 1 bedroom apartment anyway.
Need to weigh the benefits of eyefinity K-Monitors vs a nice 60" tv....
