I'm trying to build myself a new desktop for gaming and general websurfing/studenting. I recently ordered 27.5" LCD monitor for $270 which displays at 1920x1200. My other option is 3 20" LED TV's for $449. What do you all recommend? Does anyone have any experience using a larger display vs. 3 smaller (lower resolution) displays. How does it work out for gaming? Does having the three separate bezels hurt the experience? How about for office productivity?
The only thing that would bother me about using 3 smaller monitors would be the fact that the image would not be continuous. As I'm sure you have seen various reviews using GPU's that can handle 3+ monitors, it seems to me that your gaming experience would be much better using a single large monitor instead of 3 smaller ones. However, if you were to go with a 6 monitor set up, then I'd consider using 6 smaller monitors.
