Hey guys you helped me before I hope you can do it again

I have a "ok" 23 inch samsung TN panel 1920x1080 and a 20 inch 4:3 Dell S-IPS panel 1600x1200 (dell 2001fp)

Basically I've been wanting to give eyefinity a try and I don't really want to invest 300 more dollars to get similar samsung TN panels. But my question for you is that will getting two more Dell's be a smart move. Mine is around 9 years old and still runs the way it did out of the box. I can pick two more in excellent condition for around 140 together. My plan was to run the three in portrait to get a total of 3600x1600 (they swivel) paired with my 2gb 7850. Am I being dumb investing in this "old" technology?

If you need any more info please ask .

For the pridce that you would be getting the additional two monitors it's not a bad deal and as long as the Dell you have is ok then you should be fine with the set up.

The Dell monitors should be fine with eyefinity. There's not a lot of difference in monitors that would cause any differences with eyfinity , as long as the monitor has the right inputs (DVI , Display port) there's nothing to worry about.
