Default Wall Mount LCD Monitor

I have a rather small desk. Maybe 6' x 11.5'.

I currently have 3 monitors on it. 20" regular, 20" widescreen, 23" widescreen. My desk is just cramped. Also have my router, modem, and phone on it too. Keyboard and mouse at same level. I currently have 2 of the monitors on stands, that raise them up 10". So, mounting them to the wall, will get me at least a foot of retail space.

Should I get a single wall mount that supports 3 monitors? Get 3 separate mounts? Get 2 mounts that supports two screens each? (I actually have a 15" lcd that I can put on there. Not really in use as I have limited space as it is)

Yes, actually, I use 2 on this main rig, and one on my Linux rig.

I had a similar issue with trying to stuff 3 23" monitors on a 6' desk. I would suggest 3 separate mounts, preferably with tilt as well as pivot adjustment. The tilt isn't vital, but if you've ever found yourself adjusting your monitors that way then you'll miss it.

Any brands and/or styles you'd recommend?

I don't want to waste $100 on a single mount, but I don't want the cheapest crap that will break after a moth of use, either.

Heard Ergotron was good, but rather pricey.
