Need a few preferences to make a good recommendation. What are you looking for in terms of size, price, resolution, 120 vs 60hz?

For my wife's work setup I chose 3 of these, big size, thin bevel, great looking monitors:

For ones with a thin bevel you're going to end up with LED. Some people don't like LED compared to LCD, but that's more of a personal preference thing.

Note that these aren't 120 HZ though , so if you are planning on 3d this won't work for you.

Those look pretty good. I was about to buy 3 Viewsonic VX2439wm's today but maybe I should rethink. I was going to get them from Tiger Direct and sav more money with not paying tax but They dont have these Asus monitors. I really want a good eyefinity setup for gaming without breaking the bank. The guy at Fry's said the viewsonics are better for gaming than the asus but i am not sure.

Looking at the stats on both of the monitors they look about roughly the same. Obviously, sometimes stats don't translate to how things look and feel in the real world, but when it comes to the important stats for a monitor like pixels, refresh time, contrast ratio, viewing angles, the two monitors have the same exact stats.

One nice stat on both the one that you mentioned and the one that I mentioned is the 2ms response time, which is pretty fast and great for gaming. Also, they both appear to have very thin bevels which looks great on an eyefinity setup. I can't say how the viewsonic appears in real life, but my wife's computer has the Asus and they look great. It should be noticed that the Asus might have an unnecessary feature in that it has speakers and I'm guessing that headphones or an actual speaker set would be used, but you don't need to use them (for my wife we don't even have the cables going to them)

You are right they do look pretty much the same stat wise. I like the Asus looks, and the Viewsonic one I saw at Frys yesterday and it is preety nice looking as well. The only thing i didnt like was the stand. It was not as good as the Asus. Ialmost spent $912 on them along with an overpriced Active display adpater the guy was trying to sell me which I knew I didnt need to spend that much. Tax here Cali is crazy. SO I am going to buy them from Tiger Direct since there is not tax and the monitors are $20 cheaper and shipping is only $23. A total of 671 compared to 912. I showed the supervisor at Frys and he tried to tell me that I still needed to claim the purchase on my taxes.lol I work with my family that owns a Tax service and accounting business, and I know for a fact you dont need to do it. It is the responsibility of the merchant to charge tax and collect it wherre applicable. Out of state purchases where they are shipping from that state to yours do not require sales tax to be charged.

That is how dumb they are at Frys though.
