@Dagamus NM - I don't think I could deal with a portrait centre screen, like you said, it might not be wide enough. I don't plan on having games span across screens, sides will be for other apps while gaming.
I forgot to say, I'll probably only be gaming at 1080p, happy to go up but happy to stay there too.
Well you got me curious and i went back to do some more research. I ended up finding this model number LTN154AT07 for a 15.4" 1440x900 panel. Picked up two used ones for ~$20 each and then two control boards for ~$25 each and then two power supplies for ~$7 each. I'll put it down more logically.Parts list for 27" 1440p PLP Portrait Monitors:Monitor
: Search ebay for LTN154AT07 or B154PW02 (15.4" 1440x900 ~110dpi which is almost the 108dpi of 27" 1440p. I found two used ones i felt comfortable with for ~$20. Brand new replacements are about ~$50 each)Controller
: Search ebay for R.RM5251 LCD Controller (one of the better priced controllers i could find that has DVI digital input. cheaper ones can be found that are only VGA. Must verify with seller which monitor you are using and check for compatibility)Power Supply
: 12V 4A (i believe the plug to be 5.5x2.5mm but i could not find on the controller page. but i'm about 90% sure it is. the best priced ones i found were on amazon. i suggest searching for whatever is better priced for you)Total: $100-$150
These three things are really all that you need, and as you can see can be had for very cheap if you do you searching.
I also ordered some 3M foam double stick tape to attach everything to the panel. I'm not exactly sure how i will do the mounting, but i have two desk mount monitor arms at my disposal which i will attempt to mount the monitors to.
Here is a picture and corresponding link where i found information about the monitor and controller to use
Hopefully the colors won't be too far off. But it will certainly be interesting to see how it turns out.
(my fiance thinks i have a monitor addiction. So far the monitor collection includes 2x dell 27" 1440p 144Hz gsync monitors, one for each of us as a main, a 27" 1440p korean overclockable monitor, a korean 40" 4k monitor, a 24" 1080p 144Hz 1ms, 27" 1080p 60Hz, 24" 1080p 60Hz, 21.5" 1080p 60Hz. After these two mini monitors for PLP all i will be missing is a 21:9 ultrawide LOL although i did get a 29" 21:9 for my mom to use at work. okay useless info ending here..)Edited by IMI4tth3w - 7/12/16 at 9:52pm
