Should I get another Samsung BX2450.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Samsung BX 2450 (Would get another later for Surround)
-I have heard pretty much a lot of bad things about this monitor but I already have one and was told it was a good monitor when I originally bought one. Mine looks beautiful but the amount that seem not to look good doesn't seem to be worth the risk. Better to sell it and get 3 cheaper 200 or so Asus monitors that a lot of people have and look good?

Full Order of things I am thinking of grabbing:

Samsung BX 2450

EVGA GTX 580

Gentle Typhoon 1850rpm 120mm fan for Video card Duct

200mm Cooler Master Mega Flow

If you don't like it, then go ahead and sell it, but I love the BX series. Glossier the better, I say. Unless you flight sim, tri-monitors aren't very advantageous over two. If you are looking into three, a 580 would lack the buffering to game on all three. You would need 2GB on your memory, or at least be better off. If you game on one, the 580 would be outstanding.

Que?

I don't really understand that part but if you already have it, then dont worry bout it, just run some monitor calibration programs and be done with it.

if you plan to buy more monitors for multi-monitor display then i may consider selling it and grabbing some asus ones so that you get the same height and bezel.

I would get 2 more (already have one) so they would be all the same height and bezel. And what I meant is another one maybe I lucked out with a good one. But hey I don't know.


And I would be SLIing GTXs 580s on 3 monitors. I wouldn't need 2GB (6970/50s) unless I was playing games like GTA IV which are obnoxiously horridly programed. Unless I am wrong here do I NEED 2GB to play games at that res? Or will 1.5GB be enough?

I'm actually in your same situation. After buying the BX 2450, I noticed that the bezel may be an issue if I wanna get two more.

Don't get me wrong, I love the display, but I really like how this eyefinity set up looks!!

I'm not by my monitor to take pics, but it has a little glass border which makes the bezel thicker for eyefinity. I love it don't get me wrong..
