Hey guy's grabbing a case soon and have decided to upgrade my monitors. I want to run three screens with my 5870 which I do now but the middle screen is my 32 tv and the side ones are my old 22inch LG which have been great for 4 years now

What is the best for gaming in 24 inch x3 ? I do want maximum viewing

I see that Samsung is popular. A mate bought 2 samsungs but very wide which is not what I want I don't think (my 22's wide seem taller than his 24 wide)?

I play mostly car games EG2, Shift Etc.. and some FPS.

One last thing, my 22's are rated at 2ms and I see that most samsungs are rated at 5ms. Is this a thing to worry about?

Regards to all, really love this site !!! A+++

I've seen people use Dell U2410's which are great screens and also the Samsung 2443BW's which are a lot cheaper, but I think there's screens out there that are designed specifically for multi-screen setups. Couldn't tell you which screens are though.

Edit: Here's a video of a system builder I'm subscribed to on youtube who in the video shows off his 3 Dell U2410's in Eyefinity

I'm leaning towards an Acer 24"...they have thinner (narrow) bezel. Meaning less interrupted picture between monitors for a more connected looking view from screen to screen

NEC's they have pretty thin bezel's, might wanna take a look into them..

But for the clearest picture You should definitely take a look into some IPS monitors. My friend swears by them and how clear they are... But you pay of the performance obviously

I've found the bezels don't make much difference really. Obviously IPS is the best image, but they cost from 2 times a TN and are let down by the input lag, which can cause ghosting. With three screens, the bezel line isn't anywhere important, so most of the two screens are in your peripheral vision. If you are working with three monitors, you don't care about the bezel as you can work around it.
