triple monitor or single 2560x1440

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So I currently have a 27" Samsung 1080p led monitor. I want to do something different.

Can't decide on a single Korean 2560x1440 or 3 23-24" verticals.

I mostly game. Lol,d3, titanfall, ESO.

Which would be better and why?

Also what 23-24" monitor or what Korean 1440p should I get?

Budget is about $500

Both are great but it depends on the graphics settings you want to use the most seeing as a 660TI SC will choke on some titles @ 1440p with max settings let alone adding regular AA 2-8 on them (FXAA would be preferred or none at all).

Seeing as 1440p is pushing around 3.7 million pixels and vertical 1080p (3240x1920) is using 6.23 million pixels you'll see higher FPS on the 1440p display.

Korean monitor wise I like the Crossover 27Q, QNIX QX2710, and Catleap models. Monoprice also carries 1440p monitors for so so prices as well.

Forgot to mention that I'm running sli 660tis Now and will be going 880 or whatever maxwell brings in release day.

Do you think you'd be bothered by the monitor bezels when gaming across multiple monitors?  I'm currently using 3 monitors (not for gaming as they're all different sizes) and the only way I'd ever consider gaming across 3 of the same monitors is if they were de-bezeled.

 

I can't give you any advice on the Korean 1440p monitor as I've never owned one (although I plan on buying one soon).  The only games I play are FPS and since getting an Asus 144Hz I don't think I'll go back to a 60Hz for fast paced games.  I personally would go with the Korean 1440p monitor but it's a tough decision.

Bezels wouldn't bug me too much in a vertical 3 way setup. But I also have no problem debezeling if they do bug me.

So far Korean 1440p seems to be winning. Keep the opinions coming please!

I would go with the Korean IPS/PLS panels (if you go for the PLS, you might get one that can overclock well). It will be easier to drive.

 

I would only go with Dell S2440L, P2414H, or U2414H for 23-24" monitors. Out of those three, the S2440L is glossy and a VA panel while the P2414H and U2414H are both IPS panels (with some slight differences). U2414H has a very small bezel (still fairly small with the inner and outer bezel combined) but offers only more modern inputs (HDMI and DisplayPort if I remember correctly) while the P2414H has thicker bezels but offers DVI and whatnot. The S2440L has bezels about the size of the P2414H. They all have low input lag and great pixel response.

 

The only reason I see to go with these smaller monitors is if you're worried about contrast ratio. All 3 of the smaller monitors sit around the 1000+:1 range for contrast ratio. Korean IPS panels have measured to have very poor contrast ratio (the panels are rated for 1000:1 but being not A+ panels, the Korean panels suffer) since they are not A+ panels. The same will probably be for the PLS. Best case scenario is 800:1 which is what the A+ panels can usually push out.

Korean 1440p gets my vote also. I absolutely love mine! In my case, I have so much real estate on a single screen that I don't have to rely on multiple screens to keep all windows related to my given task open and close together. I use a 24" 1080p display as a second monitor, but even then when gaming I still have enough room on the second screen to keep up with other windows and or watch some Netflix/twitch stream.

However, one thing you will notice in a setup like mine is the stark difference in the quality of your 1440p and secondary screen. This may be trivial or not as noticeable to you depending on the monitor you already have, but the color and screen quality is night and day. Working on anything with colors or even watching a movie looks completely different from screen to screen.

Ahh, either or then lol, vertical 1440p monitors was fun for me with SLI 670s but with most monitors debezeled there's still a decent amount of gap between the monitors' frames. You could overlap them to have only one single gap in between but it's still an iffy look/feeling in person. I'd stick with 1440p and see if you can't OC it to 90Hz+. The pixel density is definitely worth it in the long run even if it isn't ridiculously higher you'll notice it when in use.

Amazon and eBay have a wide selection of Qnix QX2710s however this one by AW (accessorieswhole) would be my choice. They shipped my Crossover 27Q in 2 days from pressing submit to my door step and have one of the highest reputations on here for the Korean market because of their good and quick customer service.

Dream-seller on eBay is also another good one, he shipped my second 27Q, not quite as fast but popular and reliable too.
