Looking for input/experience with unmatched 3-monitor setups.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I currently use 3 Dell U2412ms side by side, driven by a 780 ti. I am thinking about picking up a new 27" display (either the ASUS 279Q or the Acer 271hu) and using it as my primary (middle) display. I would then have one smaller 24" Dell on either side.

I know that surround will not work with this setup--that is not important to me since I never use it in gaming. I usually have my games fullscreen windowed on the center display, with a TV feed or browser on the left screen and messaging/browser on the right screen.

I was hoping to hear from anyone with experience with a setup like this (small/large/small) and any cons I need to look out for. I know right away that aside from being different sizes and resolutions, they will actually be different aspect ratios (the u2412ms are 1920x1200 and obviously the 27" will be 16:9).

Any other reason why this setup would not work or not be enjoyable?

Thanks.

I don't quite have that setup, I have three 24" on bottom and a 27" on top of the middle.
My only "complaint" is that when I move a window to the top the text can get real small and sometimes hard to read. But, if the monitor is right in front of you it may not be too bad. I still enjoy it because I use media on top so that's nice with the larger monitor. I also have a larger resolution on top so that plays a part. But, it doesn't bother me having a different sized monitor.
