I wont have 2. Ill sell the 750 I have now. You said 850 minimum, so 1000 should be fine or will 850 be too close to call?

Question:

Why do you want 3 Monitors for gaming? If you were playing Flight sims, then I would be understanding.
But, FPS games? why not just get a huge HD TV or something?



^ Honestly.... I would hate that for a FPS. The two black bars down the middle of the panels... No thanks. lol
