Hello friends
I am in the search for 3 new monitors for eyefinity. Here are my requirements, hopefully you can steer me in the right direction

Size: minimum 24", would like to go around 26...would go bigger if price and other req's below are met.

Response Time: Obviously the lower the better, I'd prolly go with 5-6ms being highest

Uses: I watch a lot of movies on my computer so color quality and picture quality is important to me, I do a lot of gaming so that is where the response time comes in handy.

ALSO: Smaller bezels would be nice....i dont need the super thin expensive stuff just nothing to bulky. (my current Samsung t260hd is a bit on the thicker side)

PRICE: I am looking to spend max 400 per monitor. I'm fairly confident I can find something in this range that will be super awesome for me.
If something is borderline on the price I would still like to know about it. I have sourcing companies at my work that can help me get a better deal.

Here is my first option I was looking at:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236047

Let me know what you guys recommend.

Thanks all!

That was going to be the monitor I was going to get for an eyefinity setup before I decided to go 3D Surround instead.

the bigger your monitor configuration the more GPU power you need. The larger your screen size is what i mean by that.

That's not true. GPUs only care about what resolution your monitor is. Both 24 and 26 inch monitors will in all likely hood be 1920x1200 or 1920x1080.

either way I have a Sapphire HD 5870 and plan on getting a second to join the fun :)

At this point im looking at getting 2x Dell 2408wfp's and then a 2408 stand to swap my Dell 2405 monitor stand for asthetics. I'm not doing this to pass it off as something different just that I am happy with the 2405 i have now and for now will be satisfied with 2 2408's and 1 2405

now its just about finding the right price lol.

Still options are open but looks like 2408's will be most suitable for good color representation and good gaming.
