i want to make some upgrade to what i have now. i Have 32" tv that i am using with laptop. Now i want to get 3*24" tvs and set them up in portrait or landscape mode i dont know yet. I would like some info what type of graphic cards i need for this. Is it better to go with ati or nvidia? i have 800 900 euros for PC without monitors. I dont play games that often but like to play them from time to time. I am more making this for programming so i can use more monitors for different files. Also would be good if it can be some hardware on witch i can install mac osx but this is not primary thing.

Really wish I had enough room on my desk to just buy an arm and a third monitor, it's funny because my brother told me once you go dual screen you don't go back. I have pretty much eaten those words, I could never go back to one monitor versus multiple monitors now.

When you display the monitor and iphone boxes as part of the decor, that's when your Apple obsession as reached it's max level. :p
But the Degree earned tops everything in that photo.
hahahaha, i may be weird but i actually find packaging to be really beautiful sometimes! as gorgeous as Apple hardware is, it is nice to see a company invest in the wrapping as well... seemed a waste to throw away XD

Packaging definitely can't hurt the already excellent resale value either :D

No the photograph in the bottom left sign by the lady, whom appears to be a k-pop girl, tops it all off.

Interesting layout, though I would have gone all 23" for proper PPI matching. Are you using Eyefinity/nVSurround?

Nice porn/hentai setup you get there i mean game LOL SICK. :D:D:D

Actually Holo, the wise wolf, appears frequently naked in Spice and Wolf since her true form is that of a wolf. Actually one of my favorite series and the first arc actually looks a lot like the area and city in Germany I'm from. Though that is a bit more suggestive fan art of Holo, more ecchi than hentai.

Nods, I was wondering because the bezels in the middle would drive me crazy if I was gaming on your setup. Do the PPI differences affect your work or do you generally not use it as a SLS?

Was wondering guys, Ive posted my triple monitor setup but the colours on the 2 flanking VE247H's were terrible.
I have two options right now. Get 3 IPS monitors
OR
2 IPS monitor flanking a 120HZ monitor. I game heavily but Im wondering whether or not this would look retarded? With all the beautiful colours on the sides but then some TN panel in the middle?
I will ONLY game on the 120HZ so theres no worries about the different refresh rates....
What would you guys take?

due to different applications on the screens it doesn't effect me. And the difference from the 23" to the 21.5" is little

I use 19" 1440 x 900's set back a bit on monitor arms with a 27" 2560x1440 and the ppi relative to my viewing distance, as well as the sizes relative to the 27" seem to match pretty closely. Setting them back about 10" at the furthest, angled inward basically shrinks them from my viewpoint. The "sidebar" 1440x900 portrait mode panels are TNs and do suffer shift/shadow, but they are filled with chat apps, email listing, volume mixers, download managers, progress meters, media playlists/songlists, etc... so it doesn't matter much, and the angling on monitor arms helps.
.
Personally I wouldn't mind oversized monitors (like ears) in portrait mode on either side either, if the ppi was close enough.

Portrait monitors are great for productivity (1200x1600 can show a 8.5"x11" document at 100% resolution without scrolling), but are a pain in gaming because neither Eyefinity nor nVSurround can do mixed portrait/landscape ie. PLP. That‘s why gamers who multimonitor go with 3 landscape or 5 portrait.

For those that are running 5 monitors in P mode what sizes are you guys typically running?? I have 5x Dell U2011's here and I am wondering if its worth to game with those screens. They are only 1600x900 Resolution.

I would agree on that.

900 is pretty darn narrow - I tried with 5 1920x1200 in portrait and I found the number of bezels annoying with a 33% wider screen. You are better off going 3 in landscape than 5 in portrait especially if they are that small. If you had 5 30" 2560x1600 *THEN* 5 in portrait starts looking good.

Eh.... 30" monitors are a little too big. You start to strain your neck / eyes to see stuff at the top and you may need to sit back to enjoy the large screen while gaming, which makes the extra resolution a little moot. 5x1P 22" 1680x1050 monitors were too small and the bezels started to take away from the experience. I found that 23" 1080p screens were good, but If I was to rebuild a 5x1P setup (which I do want to do) it will most likely be with 24" to 27" monitors probably at 1920x1200. Bezels can be minimized by debezeling and painting / taping the edges. If you want to do 5x1P, make sure to surround yourself and get fairly close to you monitors, otherwise the bezels will be distracting.

Great, thanks for the info... I was just playing around with the thought... I've had these dells sitting here for a while. They were my old set-up before I went to dell U2410s.

I have a extra gaming PC here and thought it would be cool just to set-it up that way.
Looks like I am going to try to sell those monitors and get something else. Thanks for the info..
