So I have a tv and two monitors. All different sizes and resolutions and it kinda bugs me. So I'm looking for three 1080p monitors that are at least 20in big and that are cheap but decent quality. Like, the best budget monitors out there. Any ideas?

I loved (and still do) my hanns-g monitors. Good quality at a good price, I got the 27inch ones they have.

Though down side is bezel is a bit big. I have seen these acres in action and for multi monitor they seem nice.

While they look nice, how would one connect three DVI-based monitors? One DVI slot puts out two monitors and one puts out one? Running a MSI GTX 660 OC TF.

one would use a converter, depending on one's card it would be vga->dvi or hdmi-> dvi.
also the acer has hdmi input.
