Best monitors for Eyefinity?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know what the best monitors for Eyefinity are?

Right now, I'm just looking at 23" or 24" monitors in the ~$150 price range.

But when I look at demonstrations of Eyefinity, it seems the monitors all have 2560x1600 resolutions. But these monitors seem to be, each, $1000 and up!

Are 1080p monitors enough for Eyefinity? I only plan to use 3 monitors.

1080p is fine, just choose one's with the smallest bezels, and smallest pixel pitch.

3 Monitors at 1080 each = 5760 x 1080 (a lot of pixels to drive). Most people do Eyefinity on 1080 displays, very few have I ever seen running 30" monitors in Eyefinity, you would have to have a triple or quad GPU system to even run 7950 x 1600

You'll have a tough time finding for $150 each in the 23 - 24" range, but something like this if you grab it now (deal of the week) would certainly do you just fine smile.gif

Normally $200, 170 each, free shipping, 23" slim bezel - not sure that you could really go wrong smile.gif
(even has versa mounts on them, so you can grab a nice stand, but they are costly lol)

1080p is probably the best BUDGET choice for eyefinity. Provides GREAT gameplay experiences while remaining extremely cheap. It's also possible to run. 3x2560x1600 is almost impossible to run in some games.

Where do you find a monitor's bezel and pixel pitch specs though?
