It's 1080p all across the board. so don't need to worry about that conversation...


I dunno, i'm really iffy about it. I mean, I want the 3 screens, but going from the large horizontal viewing angle down by 6 inches... Thats a big gap.

Anybody have any input on how jarring it is to move to that kind of a set up?

I would still want my TV hooked up so i'd be using all 4 ports on my video card, would that cause issues?

I have two monitors (want to get 3, but my current monitors aren't manufactured anymore) and I don't play games across both monitors so I'm not sure how big the performance impact is.

But to answer your question more directly, no, you're not cutting performance that much, unless you're absolutely maxing your video card's limits right now.

I don't know. Having a 27 inch monitor is awesome. I'm planning on getting two more. Cutting down would probably drive me a little crazy.

that's my thinking... anybody made the switch down to a smaller tri screen setup? Should I just wait and buy 2 more 27 inch monitors?

Save up and get another two 27" monitors.
