I just got done building my system. I have an amd 3.2ghz deneb, 8 gigs of mushkin ram, and a sapphire HD 6870. I am considering doing a 3 monitor setup but I cant seem to find any monitors that get outstanding reviews. I currently have a Samsung 22" syncmaster 3000:1 2ms that is great (just a few years old, love this thing.) so I am open to any suggestions for a 3 monitor setup. I wanna go with 3 because I dont want to have the line in the middle with two monitors when im gaming.

BTW, im running an 850w PSU. Thanks for any help you can provide!

Whats nice about that monitor is is the thin bezel. But you have a choice to make.

Eyefinity uses the display port connector for one of the monitors - this LG doesnt have a dp input. You will have to buy an ACTIVE dp to DVI adapter for $100 and they dont always work.

This is one of the big gripes about Eyefinity - you need a monitor/display with a DP so that all three displays look the same. Very FEW include DP inputs and when they do, they charge more for them.

So your choice - active adapter or a monitor with a Diplay Port input.

And once you get it running, its beautiful...
