    Hey guys, wondering if some people wanna give me some advice on a triple monitor setup. Im planning on running a MSI Gaming Edition GTX 780 3GB with a Intel i7-4790k and 16GB RAM for a new gaming/software development PC. For my monitors, I want to run 3 in a typical side by side setup with the 2 on the end curved inwards. Im looking to spend about 200 per moniter, but ill dip over that if its a steal or a really good value. With this setup, im looking to game on all 3 (5760x1080) most likely. This will only be fore a few games like maybe skyrim on med settings or racing/simulation games. for the most part ill be gaming on a single monitor. One requirement I have is bezel width. I want the black space in between the monitors to be very thin. Another key factor im looking into is whether or not a 60hz monitor is good for me with what im planning to do. A good brand ive been seeing is ASUS or maybe even a samsung. Btw, im looking between 22-25 inchs. And i live in Canada as well.

    TL:DR;

    Triple monitor setup
    Running on a GTX 780
    $200~ per
    some games i want to run on all 3 at once but not all of them and probably not at max settings
    60Hz good enough?
    Bezel width.
    Live in Canada

    Here are some options I came up with:

    ASUS VN248h-p: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236335
    ASUS VN247h-p: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236307
    ASUS MX239h: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236310&cm_re=mx239h-_-24-236-310-_-Product

    I really like the 239h, the bezel seems almost non-existent. bit out of my price range, so probably only if they go on sale.

    HOMYGOD: http://rog.asus.com/324842014/gamin...ilable-july-g-sync-144hz-wqhd-gaming-monitor/

    this is literally THE PERFECT MONITOR. looks DEADLY, 1ms response time, 144Hz, small bezels and 27inch. too bad it costs more for 1 of these than my budget for all 3 monitors

    Dell:

    Pricing might be steep but awesome monitors. Tiny bezel, IPS, etc.

    I am sure he knows how to do that. He is just looking for monitors to actually be able too.

    I dont think the 8ms response time will be much of an issue, and thats kind of what you will get with good IPS panel.
