3 30" Monitors

If someone has 3 30" monitors, what desk are you using? I might want to have 2 above and maybe another 20" on the side but only the bottom three monitors will be used for actual gaming.

Any suggestions? I kind of want my computer to sit on the desk as well, to show it off

I wouldnt recommend 3 30" monitors, it wouldn't look very good IMO, Up close 30" 1080p will look pixelated

I'd love to get me some 7860x1600 eyefinity action but you'll need some heavy quadfire GPU setup to support that

...Here we go again...

I'd probably say build it yourself. Could be worth a look round Ikea though.

Have you already bought the monitors? and are you actually planning to?
Bearing in mind getting monitors that size is likely to cost over a grand, plus the additional 2...

Also, as Seumas said, 1080p looks pretty bad with anything over about 24 inch, so you'd be looking at 2560x1440/1600 - which then puts the price up to around £1500 for just monitors...
Then you need to find graphics cards capable of running that, which currently no combination of graphics cards in today's market are even capable of running 3x 2560 screens in gaming well.

Was thinking four 680 4gb cards, all watercooled. I already thought about building it myself and was just wondering if there was a desk I could just buy and save some time

3x 30" is madness. even 4x 680's will struggle.

Just buying "the best of everything" normally means youve got no idea

Anything over 2 cards in SLI/Crossfire makes no difference to performance - and in some cases actually decreases performance.

Max you should have is two cards - and two 4gb 680s aren't enough to run triple screens.

This is *beginning* to sound more and more like a dream build...
