About to buy 3x 27 inchers - advice?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm very close to pulling the trigger (today or tomorrow) on THREE Iiyama B2712HDS monitors. There is a similar model called E2710HDS but it seems the one I'm thinking of has a slightly better contrast ratio and a better stand.

Does anyone have experience with these? The price seems to be around £250, which I think is quite good for a 27 inch 1080p monitor with hdmi, dvi and vga, a 2-5ms response and a relatively thin bezel (eyefinity).

Duly noted. This was already my intention, but I'm waiting for the Sandy Bridge mess to be resolved before I buy a new board that will support two cards.

Not worth it as seeing only a handful of games can really take advantage of a multi-monitor setup. I would rather Game on 1 large screen than multiple ones with bezel's in between each monitor. And for a fact, I have gamed on multi monitor setups. My sister's BF has 3 monitors hooked up to his 5870. Not that special.
