    I've got 2 19" LCDs both at 1280x1024. I'm very tempted to buy a 3rd monitor to complete the set and let me play games a bit more effectively (currently using just 1 screen for games).

    Do I:
    - buy another standard 19" and just sit it on the left
    or
    - buy a widescreen one and put it in the middle between the existing 19"s. If this one, what screen size do I need? Ideally it'd have the same 1024 vertical pixel count.

    I'm really looking for something off ebay :lol: My current screens are an AOC (6 yrs old, no "issues" ever (touch wood), cheap at the time) and a Syncmaster something or other I inherited. Hence I'm not overly bothered about quality as long as the resolution's correct!

    Thanks

    ps I also need another graphics card (current in sig) to drive it, any ideas? (again cheap cheappppp) :)

    a 22" 1680x1050 16:10 fits perfectly in between a couple 19" 5:4 screens

    Same physical height, same sized pixels, nearly the same vertical resolution - works a treat.

    The Dell 2209WA will work quite nicely.
