I've noticed the 20/30/20 1200x1600/2560x1600/1200x1600 Config is most desirable but it is a bit out of my price range. I've figured out a few configs that work, using monitor size calculator http://cubic.bioc.columbia.edu/kernytsky/tools/aspect/aspect.php, a spreadsheet, templates using exact sizes, and mockups. Please make a suggestion.

First, here is a to-scale visual representation of the choices:


Choice 1
Hanns-G 19 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824176072
Hanns G 27.5 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824254043
Diag AR Width Height Px X Px Y Px/Sq In
19 5:04 11.87 14.84 1024 1280 7,441
27.5 16:10 23.32 14.57 1920 1200 6,781

Choice 2

Acer 27 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009165
Diag AR Width Height Px X Px Y Px/Sq In
17 5:04 10.62 13.27 1024 1280 9,301
27 16:9 23.53 13.24 2048 1152 7,573

Choice 3

Asus 25.5 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236047
Diag AR Width Height Px X Px Y Px/Sq In
17 5:04 10.62 13.27 1024 1280 9,301
25.5 16:10 21.62 13.51 1920 1200 7,888

Mockup

And for comparison sake, here are the stats for the 20/30/20 config/ Notice how close the px/sq in are and also, they have the same vertical resolution.
Diag....AR......Width...Height..Px X ...Px Y....Px/Sq In
20......4:03.....12........16........1200....1600....10,000
30......16:10...25.44...15.9.....2560....1600....10,126

Wait wait wait! Why are you going with the multi-display setup in the first place? Do you genuinely need the setup, or would a large 30" display be enough for your needs?
