    I've got two 460's in SLI and would like to buy 3 monitors for surround gaming. I'll give my current ASUS VH236Hhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236059 to my wife. I'm happy with the ASUS but wish it had swivel capability and a smaller bezel.

    I'd like to put them all in portrait (read as widescreen rotated 90 deg) and would like a minimal bezel. I'd also like a refresh less than 5ms.

    I'd like to hear recommendations, advice, cautions, etc. from anyone who has a triple monitor setup.

    I'm also a tightwad and am trying to minimize costs, so go ahead and make high dollar recommendations, but I'll probably just ignore them in my purchasing decision.

    Thanks!

    A guide to monitors produced by the wonderful Goodbytes. I would urge you to have a read through this.

    LG IPS231P-BN would probably a good bet. It has an IPS panel which is superior to the TN you get in most monitors. I won't go into a great level of detail here because the link I provided has everything you need but the colours are generally better than TN panels.

    Another alternative is the Dell U2311h or the Dell U2412m.

    I personally wouldn't recommend the LG in this circumstance as its top and bottom bezels (or the left and right bezels when in portrait) are different sizes, with the bottom one being quite thick.

    As other's have said I would suggest three of the LG monitor's, but really this depends on your budget, if below £500 for all the monitor's then the LG would definitely be my recommendation,

    if you have a bigger budget then consider something like the Dell U2410

    or U2711 http://www.scan.co.uk/products/27-d...hdmi-2xdvi-d-display-port-5-x-usb-8in1-reader

    would your setup be any good for a 3 screen setup? after researching lately, i've come to the conclusion that i'd need at least 2x3gb gtx580's to play the latest games on high settings with a decent framerate

    That's a fair question. I'd be grateful to any dual 460 SLI owners out there that have any experience with running nvidia surround.

    depends what games, if you mean BF 3 on 3 x 1920 x 1080 screen's then probably yes, other games from what I've heard the 1.5Gb card's are able to handle most things
