    They're not the monitor you mentioned earlier, but you may want to check out a pair of 24" Acer H243H monitors. I purchased two of them three months ago from Newegg for $425 shipped. I haven't had a single dead pixel, the contrast, brightness, and response times have been great. Not to mention they put my old 19" Dell 1910N monitor to shame.

    That Asus has been on my "short list" more than once! :wink: Almost pulled the trigger on 3 Sammy BX2450s (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824001421&nm_mc=EMC-IGNEFL112210&cm_mmc=EMC-IGNEFL112210-_-EMC-112210-Index-_-LCDMonitors-_-24001421-L0C) because of an insane offer but they are OTS. Right now have a "Best Offer" on the 'bay for 3 LG E2340Vs but dought that'll fly as I kept it in my original ebay buget. More than likely will end up buying 3 Samsung EX2220Xs.

    After all the original plan was to mount these on a thriple monitor stand and the 22" (21.5) are the only ones with VERSA mounts!! ;D

    Now I just have to find a triple versa mount that doesn't brake the bank and before the boss finds out! :hair: :wink:

    Dosen't ATI eyefinity allow you to game on 3 monitors?

    A little off-topic, but if anyone finds this thread later, I wanted to drop a reminder that ATI Eyefinity requires one monitor to be connected via DisplayPort. Which may not seem like a big deal except that there aren't a whole lot of options right now, and if you want three identical monitors, then you may be paying a price premium three times over.

    I have three Samsung 23" displays on two mounts, and one solution around the requiring a DisplayPort monitor is grabbing an active DisplayPort adapter. I have one that converts my DP into DVI, and I use that for 6144x1152 gaming. :)

    Many vendors are now including a passive single-link DVI to DisplayPort adapter in the box with their GPUs. This will allow anyone with a monitor up to 1920x1200 to satisfy the DP requirements of Eyefinity.

    These adapters can also be had for $30 or less, too. This is a new development in the Eyefinity ecosystem.

    or HDMI to DisplayPort also I am seeing with a lot of 6870's. And HDMI LCD's are pretty cheap-o

    el cheap-o HDMI LCD with VESA mount compatibility just sayin'

    Thrax's clarification is worth reiterating - you only need an active adapter if you need dual-link DVI for larger resolutions like mine. Don't spend $100 if you don't need to. :)
