I'm running into a problem because I'm in need of a monitor upgrade, but I have my heart set on a portrait landscape portrait set-up. My issue is that I want all 3 to support 2560 x 1440, but I can't find any monitors that would be small enough to be portrait oriented that support the 2560 x 1440 resolution.

My questions to you all is:

A - Is this set-up possible?

B - If so, what monitor(s) do you suggest?

C - Can you give me a ball park on how much this would cost? Ideally, I'd wouldn't like to go higher than 1500.

Thank you for all of your help!

There's good news and then there's bad news , from what I can see the 2560x1440 resolution currently only comes in the 27" monitor size and all of them except one are over $600, and the one that isn't doesn't support portrait mode.

There is one that does have the pivot function that tells me it supports portrait mode , because if a monitor can pivot then it has to support portrait mode.

This monitor as you can see when you click on the link goes for $679.99 , so your looking at $2000 if you get it at Newegg. You can shop around and see if it's cheaper someplace else.
Amazon , PC Mall and CDW all have it for more.You can try some of the links on this page.
