I just don't know if triple monitor gaming is really my thing yet...

If you want to get a multi-screen setup, I'd really recommend getting identical displays. It's almost mandatory for setting up Surround gaming plus it just looks better, but maybe that's the Apple fanboy in me speaking


meth, great system and awesome new card! Enjoy!
I understand, I feel a bit OCD at times and mismatched monitors bothers me.... my 2 22" ones right now drive me insane because of their differences in color.

Either way I was going to go dell IPS panels for the 24s and 30s... I just can't decide if I want to game on a single 30" and have the 24's as support or if I want to go all out and do a triple 30" setup for surround gaming....

surround gaming wasn't actually my main goal, rather it was getting an environment where I can quickly develop applications. I commonly end up splitting my left display with a web page on the left, more web pages on the right or possible code examples and then an IDE (VS2008, eclipse, etc....) on the right with my tv hosting other various things.... I'd kill to convert the POS 36" tv into something useful
