    Hey members of TPU. I need your advice. Is it better to get a huge LCD screen about 40" or get two 25.6" screens and go eyefinity. Or get 3 23" screens?? Because i've heard its annoying when you have two screens because the screen gap is right in the middle.

    If its the 23" Screen this is what i thought about

    If its the 25.6" Screen this is what i thought about.

    I'm sure one of the three monitors has to be hooked up too the Displayport to work, so if you go with those monitors then you will need a converter.

    I don't think I would ever run 2 monitors for gaming because like you said, splits right in the center. A 40" TV will work great if you push a good enough resolution. So if you want vertical size to match horizontal size, thats the way to go.

    But Eyefnity gives you a wider field of view, which in an FPS can be an huge advantage and in racing games it's very nice, but you won't have that huge vertical size to go with the width. So really all what your after.

    A+ to you mdsx, you've got one of the most high end systems around. I mean damn. How can I get the money you have?

    Eyefinity give you just a sense of immersion but always your eyes remains on the central screen focused, I do not recommend it

    40", leaves you with the option for additional 2 more screens in the future.
