Well... I guess I'll just sell my current SAMSUNG because it's not up to par with the monitors I am looking at. I don't think the center main monitor should be lower quality than the side monitors...

I guess I'll go with 3 new SAMSUNGS after I sell off my old one.

Those are great and all but 3 of those would be a big chunk of change... You think I could get away with 3x20" displays?

For FPS gaming, you should be going with 120Hz monitors.

Alienware one is good but high price, good alternatives would be LG W2363D and Asus VG236H.

Benq XL2410T has also been released here in UK.

Make sure to read some reviews on these monitors.

I'd get this. Pixel density is amazing and its an IPS.

Maybe it's just me, but the difference between 60hz and 120hz is so subtle it's not totally worth the price you pay to get it. Odds are if you suck at 60hz you'll suck at 120hz too.

I use two ASUS 25.5" 1920x1200 monitors, got em for about 240ish each from Newegg. They are TN panels so the viewing angles aren't awesome but you're going to be sitting in front of those monitors at their optimal viewing angle pretty much 100% of the time.

Somewhat true... but input lag...
