Deciding on monitors

i just ordered my new build and im getting a 5870 gpu.
i was thinking of either getting three 23-24 inch monitors or one of those $550 dell monitors cuz they are very nice.

please give me your suggestions on which way i should go
and if you can give me a selection of a few monitors that are good for gaming ( i prefer dell but doesnt matter)
im only looking to spend up 600 usd as im low on money or i would be getting three of the dell monitors

  1. Best answer
    You probably want one or two monitors you can run through your GPU's DVI connectors- three monitors require displayport hardware, and the connectors were about $100 the last I checked.
  2. Dell (new ones) should have displayports though. There are a lot of decent makes, but if you want to go for 3D at a later date, get a decent 120hz monitor
  3. How much do the 120hz monitors cost And if you can please link one or two for me

  5. You can only get stereoscopic 3d on ATI with 3rd party developers only.
    DDD only has 1 monitor it supports which is over $2000 if I remember right
    and IZ3D only supports one monitor witht heir system buts its more reasonable http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824859001

    With Nvidia you need to buy the 3D vision kit. ~$200 along with a monitor from their qualified list http://www.nvidia.com/object/3d-vision-pro-requirements.html
