I have 1080p FULL HD 24 inch and am thinking of buying a 23.6 inch at same res.
Size difference is small but I do know that even if the resolution is the same the colors can be different, since it's also two different brands.
This is the 23.6 inch i want to buy:

You do not want to game across 2 screens. You are going to have bezels right down the middle of the action, where you aim or what ever you are looking at. This is not ideal. Add to that, the screen on the left half not lining up to the image on the right half, and this is just a bad setup.

Exactly, 2 screens for gaming is a losing scenario. GBOGH
3 screens is where it's at

Man so you really need to be an enthusiast to game with multimonitor. Gotta spend over 500 for gpu alone plus 3 screen for like 250 each. Thats more then a grand. I guess people do it when they already have 2 displays and slowly start frOm ther buying other 2...
So for 1 monitor ill stick with buying the 670.. The new 660 for 300 not worth it, 670 kinda overkill but whatever I guess...

2 screens for gaming is great for MMOs, but not FPS games.
