Someone was selling a 30" monitor, I got the bug for more resolution and decided I wanted to try eyefinity again.

I'd be running it with either 3 5850's or 2 5850's and a 5870. I know some higher res setups may be starved with 1g of ram so I just wanted some input on a good size monitor setup as well as recommendations or monitors.

Obviously, small bezels would be a plus, and a rotating & height adjustable would be a big bonus too. Price, 0 to 600 or 700 dollars preferably.

I wasn't sure if this was the most appropriate spot for this, ok to move if need be and I apologize. These would be on a standard 42" corner desk unit. Thanks in advance for any recommendation

There are countless screens out there. Narrow down your budget better, or just get the best screens for your max budget of $700.

Newegg is great for performing searches. Go into the monitor section, and start narrowing it down by price, size, etc.

It's all preference and budget man.

I personally use three Samsung BX2431 LED LCD's. They are great, but they are cheaper 24" LED LCD's and don't have swivel and height adjustments. The money I saved was worth it though.

That's why I was looking for feedback, there's just so many options I figured someone here would just list their own experiences.

*Edit*
For what it's worth I just got three of these off ebay, we'll see how it goes.
