Unless the 27" monitor is 2560x1440, it's gonna be worse than 24", IMHO

Get 3x 24". If you end up not enjoying eyefinity, you can still enjoy the desktop space.


Besides, if you get monitors that can do portrait mode, you can go portrait eyefinity and do 3240x1920 for 1080p monitors and 3600x1920 for 1920x1200 monitors. That plus bezel compensation.

Well then go 2560x1440 by all means.

You can get two?

What if you get a third one later down the road?

Not exactly sure what you do, but I'd take the 3 24" monitors. Helps a lot with workflow if you do a lot of work at your PC.

not all games are meant for eyefinity, but the ones that do support it look great. im not sure why you dont like dirt 2 with 3 screens....its one of my favorite games to show off eyefinity. im playing crysis 2 now and it looks damn nice. the desktop space when your not gaming is just as nice as the gaming effects imo.

Humm i never look left or right when i am using my computer unelss its to look at the HUD. I guess i am use to Eyefinity. The streaching did bug me at first when i started using it. However i got use to it and love it now. IF you play any simulation games or overhead strategy the extra space is amazing to have.

Get a couple of 1440x900 res monitors and run them in portrait on either side of the 27"
