Best monitor for multi monitor setups

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
The way i see it, when you have a multi setup you would want average sized monitors that have a thin bezel.

Eventually i will have a 3 monitor setup but i want to know if i should get two more of the monitors i already have or something different.

this is what i have

Bigger is always better. But if that's what you have its cheaper to just buy another.

This bezel isn't absolutely necessary, but it's nice. You get used to whatever you have.

Some ppl have tried 3 x 30" and found it too much. So bigger is not always better. I use 3 x 24" in portrait.

I run 3 AOC 23" monitors in 5760x1080 and i love it.

These perfect size, IPS so the color is good, and DPI is great at 23" Has no visible bezel though it does have about 1/4 of the screen around the edge that doesn't light, but way less noticeable then raised defined bezels. Best part i got them for $120 each at best buy

Are you looking to play games across all three (Surround/Eyefinity), or just game on a single monitor and use the others for general use?

Medium settings with AA off, probably all the games will run playable, but i don't think BF4 ultra with AA maxed at that res would play well .
