    wouldn't suggest 27', will give poor pixel density on 1080p and ur card will struggle with 1440p, these are 24" with IPS
  2. I quit buying "monitors" years ago. Instead I buy TVs and am entirely satisfied with the performance as a monitor and I get a free TV.

    Do you have any suggestions for a triple monitor stand?
  4. i think BenQ provides one, though it only works with thier monitors

    I think I'm confused. If you think his card will struggle at 1440p, why are you recommending triple 1920x1080? 3x1080p is way more pixels than 1440p. Maybe I'm just not understanding your suggestion. Did you mean triple monitor 1440p? If that's the case, then yeah, any single GPU card will stuggle :)

    If not, a 7950 can run most games on med settings @1440p well, even at stock clocks. It's certainly not going to max out modern triple A, but you can still get good frame rates and enjoy a bit of eye-candy.

    Also, while the pixel-density of a 27 in. monitor is certainly less than a 23 at a given resolution, the optimal monitor size for you depends on how far you're sitting from the monitor.

    As far as cheap 27" 1080p, I like this BenQ

    good luck!
  6. Thanks alot for the quick answers I will do some research :)
  7. I like the benq but that benq cost as much as this LG ips panel : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824005419
    And does anyone have a good triple monitor stand for 27" I can't find one :( (please give links)
  8. I did a lot of research for my 27" multi monitor setup and because of the lack of good tri-monitor mounts out there, I landed on using a dual mount and a single mount. Allows for a lot of adjustment if you want to as well. I am using a http://amzn.com/B004X6NE8W and a http://amzn.com/B004SUIM94. If you decide to add more later you can go with their http://amzn.com/B00FMHXA80 and http://amzn.com/B00FMHY9NU for a 6 monitor setup.

    I went with the Chief mounts because they are great quality and it's the same mount I used for my 60" Plasma in the other room so they can all match.

    I went with triple IPS monitors (Dell UH2713HM) because with a 3x27" setup viewing angle trumps the added speed of the TN panels.
    But if you don't want IPS and want the speed of a TN, I would suggest the BenQ XL2720T http://amzn.com/B00BV9AOL4
