i need help picking out a mounting system that will be able to hold all of my monitors with out a problem. right now new egg is having problems so i could only post a link for a asus thats the same size and not the exact one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236153 i am hoping to stay under 200 for the mount. iv looked up some but i cant tell if they would support wide screens or would adjust for height even though they show adjusting for width.

are any of these good for what i want?

i would recommend none. i bought one for my 6, and didn't like it (http://www.tykesupply.com/Hex_Monitor_Stands-Hex_Monito...). nothing wrong with the mount itself - it's well made and nicely curved and good adjustments.

HOWEVER, anything like that that has a single mounting arm to the desk WILL be susceptible to side-to-side wobble. like trying to balance on a wire. also, the weight of each individual monitor makes it hard to adjust the angles nicely (you have to adjust higher so that when you remove your hand the weight of the monitor pulls it down to the angle you want)

also, a lot of those mounts burn up a lot of space for the column, arms, tilt mounts, etc - in many cases, a good 12" to 14" of depth is used up just for that.

if you are handy, i'd recommend making your own. i used 3/8" plywood and hung my 6 on the wall, so i only burned up 3/8" of depth.

also - what monitor do you have? where are the buttons? HA! if they're along the bottom or side, you have to account for that when you try to stuff the screens beside each other. i had to rotate my entire top row upside down (and flip inside of Windows) so that the bezels are as close together as possible and i still have access to the buttons in case i need to make adjustments to color or whatever.

sure, what do you want to see? my setup as i see it sitting on my chair / recliner? here ya go, and here's how they're connected to the computer. what other images / angled do you want to see?

touchscreen = DVI from onboard graphics (i5-3570k)
TV = VGA from GT610 (i had issues with HDMI and Win8 doing obnoxious scaling, so VGA avoids that)
top 3 = DVI, DVI, HDMI from first GT640
bottom 3 = DVI, DVI, HDMI from second GT640

hahaha yea the buttons are on the bottom. the monitors i have now are 3 asus 24 in monitors one of them has a display port, and il be getting 3 more when i replace my 6570 with a 280x. the 6 arent to game on i just need 3. then il have 6 24 inch one small 17 inch for icons temps and taskbar and my 55 inch samsung tv for videos. i never thought of building my own before. il have to look into it. il grab some graph paper and start drawing it out though i may just build a stand that can hold all 6 on my desk.

Build 3 stands that can hold 2 each. Easier to angle them in and move them if ever needed. My 6 screens are Acer A231H, the touch is an Acer T232, and the TV is a generic 39" from BestBuy. You'll need accurate measurements for the VESA hole spacing top to bottom.
