Hey guys, I'm seriously considering an Eyefinity setup with an Asus 5870
and either three 24" or three 23" monitors. I am looking at these monitors:
3x 23" - Newegg.com - ASUS VH232H Glossy Black 23" 5ms Widescreen Full HD 1080p LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 ASCR 20000:1 w/Speakers & HDMI - LCD Monitors
or 3x 24" - Newegg.com - ASUS VW246H Glossy Black 24" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 ASCR 20000:1 (1000:1) Built-in Speakers - LCD Monitors
The reason to go with three 23" would be to save $120. Also, with that money saved it wouldn't put such a dent in my funds when I have to buy the needed displayport adapter, which brings me to my next issue:
Sapphire has launched their adapter but I can only find it for sale here at Ebuyer
. I have found others like the HP
or another one called Accell UltraAV
1. What do you guys think about saving the $120 by going 23"?
2. I don't game in a lit room, will Glossy frames still be an annoyance?
3. Has anyone heard of or used any of these displayport adapters? Any advice there?
I don't want to fork up the $440+ for the nicer monitors with native displayport, so I figured going this route would be the best.
I will be ordering everything as soon as I figure it out, and I think when I am in Miami next month visiting my grandparents I will have it all shipped to their place and then I will bring it back on the plane.
Any thoughts or advice is greatly appreciated!!
