Had a quick search, the Dell P2210 and HP LP2275w immediately stand out.

Of the two, the HP looks far superior as it uses an S-PVA panel compared to the Dell's TN. However, the Dell is ofcourse cheaper.

Out of interest, why the need for DisplayPort? Is DVI-D not good enough for your fantastic existing dell monitors?

Yea, I was under the impression that you could use 2x DVI-D + 1x HDMI to create a 3 screen Eyefinity, hence you could do it with your current monitors (just need one HMDI to DVI-D converter).

Are you sure :S... DVI and HDMI are electronically compatible. You can get active displayport to DVI convertors too.

Dear Customer,
Your service request : SR #{ticketno:[8200241085]} has been reviewed and updated.
Response and Service Request History:
Yes, you are correct, there is no way some one with three monitors with dvi only ports on them can use eyefinity for a tri monitor set up. The display port to display port is required.
In order to update this service request, please respond, leaving the service request reference intact.
Best regards,
AMD Global Customer Care

They said eyefinity, not just a simple tri-monitor set up?

Plus if you have an active displayport to DVI converter how is that any different to using a displayport monitor exactly?
