I'm strongly considering going for a triple monitor setup. Preferably 3 x 1080p.

To do this, I'm also considering picking up an ASUS Strix 780, the one with the 6GB VRAM.
But that may be at a later date, plus I'm interested to see what the 800 series has in store.

I suppose my question is, is it still viable? I'm undecided on if I should opt for a single decent 1080/1440 display as opposed to 3 cheap-ish 1080p displays.

I'll admit that good colours and excellent brightness will always mean more to me than refresh rates and resolution. In fact, I'd prefer to stick with 1080p considering it's easier to drive. I have no quarrels with that resolution.

The bottom line is I utterly can't decide between more immersion, or better colours. Ideally both would be nice.

- What is the native res over 3 displays? 3x1920?

- Is the content out there, or am I likely to run in to a lot of boxing issues?

- If not, what displays would you recommend based purely on their screen quality. 120-144Hz is great, but a bright and colourful experience is my personal preference over it.


Budget wise, probably about £400.

defiantly a good 144hz monitor if your still thinking of getting one, http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MO...
if you want to buy a dual monitor set-up http://www.amazon.co.uk/Acer-S276HLTMJJ-27-inch-Monitor...
If you want 4k goodness This one also has a 10 bit colour display which you said you would like you can probably find it a bit cheaper but its only £40 more than your budget http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MO...


Damn that 4K one is tempting. It's a shame the resolution takes so much to drive.

it shouldnt if you have a decent cpu and the gtx 780 :) should get like 60 fps on medium settings and 30 on very high for nearly all the games :)

With a bit of luck that extra VRAM on the Strix version should help with these increased resolutions.

Thanks dude, you've been great help!
Edit: Also.... there's no best answer option for some reason. Probably shouldn't have made that poll.
