Greetings, fellow monitor gurus! smile.gif

It's been a long time since I started planning on going for a triple-display setup and I feel like it's about time to get it done right.
Currently I have a Dell U2311H - my first full HD monitor, and 2xDell U2412HMs. I can run them in 5760x1080 and that is fine. However...

My current idea is to get one more 2412 for the wanted setup, but those bezels are killing me. Debezeling those guys is a bit of a PITA because of the backpanel being kept in place with a mere data cable. Well that can be dealt with.
The major turn off is that even after debezeling I'm down to a 12mm thick frame. Which means 2.4cm (about 0.95'') in between displays.

And so we've come to the point:

I need your suggestions!
Here's what I would like to have (list sorted by importance):
  • 16:10 aspect ratio, 24'' preferred. Willing to walk down the 1600p path.
  • Bezel width of <10mm (even if I have to mod them, I don't mind voiding warranties)
  • IPS panel
  • DisplayPort

A few more things to note:
My budget per monitor is approx. $600 but I might as well aim higher if it's really worth it.
I don't really need a TN capable of more than 60Hz because I'm not a First Person Shooter kind of guy. Still, refresh rate will be taken into consideration if such a suggestion is made (albeit not being a very important factor due to their overclocking potential).
An IPS' response time of 8ms doesn't seem to bother me while playing games, I have to really concentrate on it in order to notice ghosting.
A stand with adjustable height and portrait mode support will be a minor plus (talking about 24'') because it would eliminate the need for a triple display VESA stand for now.

Let me know if you need any other information and I'll make sure to edit OP.

And of course, thank you in advance! thumb.gif
