Upgrade dilemma

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
2x MSI GTX 560Ti & 2x Samsung 2333T
vs
1x MSI GTX 580 TF II & 1x Dell U2311H

For mostly gaming, the first choice is about 60$ more expensive, but that would get me closer to 3x monitor surround.

So, quantity vs quality?

Unless you're on a tight budget that will be unforgiving if you spend those extra $60, then I wouldn't think twice about doing it.

My dream is eyefinity, so anyone who has it is God in my eyes.

Well yea, triple monitor surround sounds immense.. but would it be equally immense with 3 monitors who show lots amount of ghosting/streaking?

If you've never had an IPS/PVA monitor before, you won't really care.

Personally, I can't stand TN panels and will never buy one again.

Now, getting two panels is useless - you need three or one.

I advise you to get a GTX 480 and three TN panels. That would be mind-blowing.

GTX480 is more expensive than GTX580 for me atm so that isn't an option
I'd rather not get TN panels because I'd want my new screen to at least be somewhat of an upgrade from my 2443bw..

You can upgrade in size (three screens) or in quality (IPS).

I think size is more important right now.

GTX 480 is 300$ on eBay, shipped worldwide.
