32" 1080p + 24" monitors

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I currently have 2 24" 1200p monitors that i use on my current desktop. Im buying a 32" IPS tv, its supposed to be here today in the mail. Im currious, should i try and do nvidia surround with this tv as the center monitor, or just leave it to the side as a monitor for movies. That was my original plan for the TV.

Heres the model.

PROBLEM! READ POST #9!!!!!!!
Supposed to be a great tv. It uses an IPS panel, so the colors should be very vivid.

Lemme know what you guys think i should do, im open to ideas.

You can't surround portrait - landscape - portrait setups in surround (but extended mode is fine) if that's what you were planning on doing.

And 24" + 32" + 24" would look pretty horrible unless you arrange the monitors precisely and keep your head perfectly still..

Because when your center screen is a huge ass TV, and your side screens are these tiny little monitors, it's gonna look very weird.

I have an almost identical setup.

Eyefinity looks very odd - I would not recommend it

But the center of the screen is where your mainly focused, though I do understand where your coming from.

The transition between monitors might throw you off, so really it depends on how you handle it

Nice! I don't have that kind of money unfortunately.

you will have to sit pretty far back to make the 32" look decent. Then you get too far away to view your 24" monitors without strain. I would stick with your original plan and use the TV as a TV.

Maybe hang the 32" tv on the wall behind your desk, and keep the 24" monitors ontop of your desk? I think this solution would solve the problems of screen size, resolution difference and picture quality. I wouldnt use the tv as a center screen however, it would be annoying going back and forth between two screens that are so different.
