    I honestly don't know about any other manufacturer that sells thin bezeled monitors, many of the setup I've seen (with thin ones) are made by users themselves.
    Another good choice is the Samsung S23A750D, thin bezels and 120hz

    I love my HP ZR30w. never had any issues running it either.

    Keep the card, get a better monitor.

    Hey Guys -

    1st post for me, I just ordered this rig:
    I currently have 1 HP ZR30w, thinking of getting 2 more ZR30w's - mostly for work (I work out of my apartment) but will game with them as well. Will crossfire 7970's be decent for this setup (I don't need max settings with uber fps)? I'm not a hardcore gamer, just looking to pickup Diablo 3 when it gets released and the specs on it are not very high.

    I read the 2nd card can shutdown when not needed, when I am working would 1 card easily handle the 3x ZR30w's, nothing graphics intensive just spreadsheets, emails, and database stuff?

    Yes 1 HD 7970 would handle 3 ZR30w's fine but i would wait for nvidia next line up its only around the corner :D .

    Buy one now, test with Diablo 3 Beta. If it's not enough, buy a second ;)
