60hz monitor that looks like a BenQ XL2420TE

I have a BenQ XL2420TE and was wanting to get 2 60hz monitors with a 1ms response time. I wanted to have the BenQ in the middle and whenever i wanted 144hz for a competitive game like CS:GO i could just use the BenQ in 144hz. But whenever i wanted to play a game with triple monitors i could run the BenQ in 60hz with the other 2.

Basically i just want to know if there is a monitor made by BenQ that is the same thing but 60hz. If there isn't then what is a monitor that has similar looking colors, (i would much rather it look exactly the same and match because i am a little OCD than look better). Also i want it to be 24" 1920x1080p.

The BenQ RL2455HM is really the only option, it has the same triangular base and the bezels look about the same, though perhaps a bit more rounded.

Since that is only $100 cheaper would it be worth it to just pay $200 more and get 2 more XL2420TE's?

To be honest....it's personal preference. Gaming on three screens requires lots of GPU muscle, and you might be disappointed in not being able to keep over 100fps when gaming with triple monitors if you go the multi-2420TE route. If you just want to use Surround/Eyefinity to experience the increased immersion factor and aren't too concerned with having that smoothness on all three panels, then by all means go with the cheaper 60Hz monitors. I mean, I really like triple screen gaming, but I like 120Hz 2D lightboost gaming on my single XL2420TX even more, so again, it's really a matter of personal preference, and how much money you're willing to put into getting enough GPU power to drive the setup you want to experience.

I was planning on getting a 780ti so i would probably have enough muscle to push games that will benefit from 3 144hz monitors like Competetive CS:GO and other games that are really easy to run like Gmod. I will have to think about it.

Yeah for source engine games, anything from a GTX 680+ is good enough to run 5760x1080 with over 100fps. My OCd 780 is above stock titan performance, and has been enough to play L4D2, Portal 2 and other source games with over 100fps as long as I leave AA off at that res.

Sweet that would give me a edge in games like CS:GO being able to have 144hz and also see people in my peripheral vision. And for some other games like Skyrim that i want to be able to enjoy 3 monitors i can turn them down to 60hz so i can get smooth FPS.

The refresh rate of your monitor does not affect performance in any way, and running at lower fps than the refresh rate doesn't really negatively affect your gaming experience. You simply won't derive any benefits of the higher refresh rate e.g. less motion blur, smoother aiming/panning, etc. So to clarify, I didn't mean that you shouldn't get 2 more of these monitors because you'll absolutely NEED more GPU power just to drive them, but rather that you'll need more GPU power to hit high enough framerates to experience their added benefits over 60hz monitors.

Yes i know i just meant capping it at 60 FPS so it would be stable for games that are harder to run.
