yeah so i have been in the market for an eyefinity setup for some time now waiting on a good deal with in my budget... and last month i stumbled across the Acer G195HQLBD 18'5 led monitor i was amazed at the price, only being S95 AUD but was a little hesitant because i hadn't actually seen it in real time... and just today i saw them at the shops, the quality wasn't half bad for it's price! they would of been better quality then the monitor i have at the moment (Viewsonic VA2216w).
so i was just wandering if anyone has owned this monitor and could possibly give me their oppinion and point me in the right direction or someone who knows what they're talking about!

that is a link to the specifications, i don't really know what i'm looking at
thanks in advance

EDIT :
i'm an aspiring 3d model artist so i would use this with 3ds max, having the 2 blue prints either side of the actual program... it would be very handy to have, i also play a lot of rts games, such as command and conquer starcraft dawn of war empire earth ext most of my time i am on the computer i am gaming so i would love to have eyefinity

Generally I find that the Acer monitors aren't bad, although I haven't owned one in years and as for eyefinity in RTS games, I'd be interested to know how that pans out. Traditionally RTS games have restricted the players view to a specific size since seeing more of the battlefield than your opponent would give you a tactical advantage.

yes that is the case with most rts games, starcraft 2 for example doesn't allow it but there are many mods in which allow you to change the resolution most are band with in a few weeks though... but to keep everything nice and fair i wouldn't enable it on online play
so you think it would be worth it? i'm contemplating buying a 6870 or 6950 so handling a screen resolution of 768 x 4098 shouldn't be too difficult for them.
