27 korean vs 3 screen eyefinity

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I need your opinion on what setup to get/keep. I got hooked on the eyefinity builds of many of you here but then I started thinking of 120hz gaming too. I recently got in a monitor purchasing spree at Dell because of all the great discount coupon codes. Right now I'm sitting on:

1 old Asus 26" with 1920x1200px - This is my current monitor. It is TN.

2 x Dell s2340m - IPS, no swivel, no VESA, 1920x1080

3x Dell u2412m - e-IPS, swivel and VESA, 1920x1200

Thinking of getting a 27" korean monitor to overclock to ~120hz

My current GPU is a HD 7950 but I'm willing to pick up another one if necessary.

I use my computer for general browsing and some photo editing. Sometimes I do research which really helps to have at least 3-4 windows open. Here are my questions:

Option 1 - Add another Dell s2340m for a total of three for an eyefinity setup AND get a 27" Korean IPS. This would let me experience eyefinity and could also switch to play on the Korean monitor for 120hz (with luck). I'd have to customize the Dell s2340m to get them on VESA or some sort of portrait mode. This options is enticing because the total cost of all these 4 monitors would be less than the 3 Dell u2412m.

I guess it would be a hassle to move one of the Dell's out of my desk back and forth with the 27" Korean whenever I switched from gaming and surfing the web.

Option 2 - Play with the 3 Dell u2412m only. I probably would have to think twice about getting the 27" Korean. These are e-IPS so not as technically nice as IPS but they are 1200px which is the same as the current monitor I got.

Option 3 - Could say screw eyefinity and just game/use a 27" monitor.


Games I play is pretty much FFS, mainly BF3-4.


Any suggestions?

You could always get a Korean one and use your current one as second monitor.
I love my 120hz 1440p, so smooth and looks great too (image quality wise) smile.gif

But 120hz 1440p does require immense power to run, but so does 3 monitors. ¨
For photo editing a high resolution screen will be much better than 1080/1200p.

EDIT: Although I must admit that I liked the colors better on IPS than my current PLS, but PLS ain't bad either.

those korean pls\ips are very nice, a 7950 is ok to run 1440p but you wont get 120fps on modern games at high

i`d take a 27`` 1440p over 3 1080p panels anyday of the week, theres a lot of workspace on it (100 percent text size)

Definitely go with a single Korean 27" like the QNIX QX2710 Evolution II. You will have better performance, less driver issues, and they just look amazing.

I searched the thread and read a bunch of 27" vs eyefinity and it seems like generally speaking people prefer a 27" monitor over eyefinity. I may have to keep both an eyefinity setup and a 27" biggrin.gif

Thanks for all the responses. Any eyefinity players switched to 27" monitor and never looked back? Any switched back?

Sell all your monitors, buy three panels (either 1080, or 1440), & run them @ 100hz.
