Planning on Running Triple Monitors

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, I have been wanting to get triple monitors for awhile and I have finally decided after looking around what monitor I am going to get

Acer R240HY bidx 23.8-Inch IPS HDMI DVI VGA (1920 x 1080) Widescreen Display

https://www.amazon.com/Acer-R240HY-bidx-23-8-Inch-Widescreen/dp/B0148NNKTC/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1467921711&sr=1-1&refinements=p_n_feature_keywords_browse-bin%3A5779382011#Ask

 

This monitor covers all my needs and I will be running One HDMI and 2 DVI I have a R9 280x

Do you think this monitor is suitable?

Damn, now that I think about I probably should've gotten that monitor. Thin bezels, perfect for multiple monitor setups, and its got a pretty cheap price tag for its size. Seems good to me.

If you can afford the $30 extra, try going with the AOC  I2757FH, 27" IPS LED and it's damn beautiful if i don't say so myself

Has HDMI DVI AND VGA, If It will only do 2 for the time I can use one for my laptop then I'll just get a DP, honestly looking at triple monitors is so sweet the visuals are so cool

I think the adapter i purchased from best buy was around $12 so it's not that big of a hit if you do

Not to be a bummer but personally that graphics card is not ready for triple-montior gaming if your doing it for productivity sake for all means go ahead I have two monitors and a GTX 750Ti (but I only game usually only my main monitor). If you seriously plan to game on a triple-monitor gaming setup I would seriously consider a GTX 1070 or atleast the GTX 1060 that is coming out on July 19th for the 6GB of RAM and much higher performance than a R9 280X

For most games I won't be doing 5760 x 1080, I'll just be using the middle monitor so 1920 x 1080, only games I'll be using all three is Rocket league, and Casey Powell Lacrosse tbh
