Hello all,

I have decided I'd like to go for a three monitor setup, for gaming and photoshop/web design purposes. I am happy to go with 3 x 22" monitors and currently have an Asus MW221u. Ideally I guess I would like to keep the asus and buy two more so my questions would be:

What two monitors would be best to be put with it? (or indeed can I)
Current gfx is an 8800 GTS OC2 what am i likely going to needto replace this with?
Anything else I might need?

Many thanks

Mark

am i right in saying you could get an ati 5870 and plug all 3 screens into that? and you dont need the TH2GO if you do it that way? im not 100% on that but im sure some bright spark will be able to give you better details. but yeah a more hefty graphics card if you want to game accross all 3 would be needed.

5850/70 would cover this, the 50 being the cheaper option and giving you another £100 to spend on monitors.

From reading in other threads, your monitors will need to have dual DVI links nad also one needs to have a viewport (although that may not be true as you may be able to use an adaptor, not sure)
