    A BenQ? Means an excellent monitor > Triple average monitors setup?

    I would go with quality over quantity. BenQ or Philips. You can get a good 24 inch monitor with IPS panels for ~160$. I dont know what is your budget but count on 200$+ for good monitor (taken that you plan to buy a 60mhz one).

    I personally got 2 decent monitors. I only use the second every so often, and I don't think I would ever practically use 3. However, I do like 2 more than just 1

    I get the general idea surrounding the hype of having a multi monitor setup but monitor, as a thing you will be useing 100% of the time while at your pc, is not something to go cheap on. I would rather have one excellent monitor with great picture, brightness and viewing angle than two or three that will give me headache after prolonged usage.

    I am so sorry, I missunderstood the title.
    I would recommend getting a good screen such as BenQ for a main screen and then get a not so expensive screen as the secondary. The secondary ois mostly just used for TS, Facebook, Youtube, Spotify, ect.

    I completely agree with you, and I don't think I could have said it better.

I use the Benq for gaming and the other 2 for stream set up etc and i also use the other two mainly for work so I have twitter feeds and email up almost 24/7 so one is always running Tweet deck etc.

    I have a question about monitors. I am might be getting 2 monitor with hdmi inputs for my birthday. My laptop has one hdmi port but ive seen usb to hdmi adapters. If i get a usb 3.0 to hdmi port will it work if so can i have a link to one?

    Hm, I hope this will clear things up for you; When connecting a monitor to your pc, point A must be the monitor and point B must be a graphics card. So regardless of what conectors are used (nowdays HDMI are most common) you must connect your monitor to your graphic card. Connecting your monitor to anything else (USB port, for example) will not work.

    I am a fan of using a decent LED TV for a monitor. you can get 32-40 inch 120hz for a hundred now.

    It really depends on what you plan on doing... Not a lot of games are set up for 3-monitor resolutions so you would have to do a workaround of some sort. That being said, I enjoy playing on 3 monitors but If i had the choice, I would get an amazing 27" screen and put two of my existing monitors around it so i can use them for other things. It's nice to have the game up on the main screen in windowed mode and have say, your facebook page, or anything else (game related parsers, etc) on the other screens.

    You are correct. I guess I got charmed by the hype of multi monitor setup by those fancy gaming rig setup. You do have headache when using multi monitor setup?

    One of the reason I want multi monitors setup is for multi-task. But I forgot I can actually get 2 different monitor as you said. Thanks for enlighten me! I am not a smart man.:slightly_sad:

    LED TV > monitor? May I know what is the difference?

    Totally agreed. I think I will setup my rig this way. Thanks!

    LG 34" Curved Monitor I'd recommend this over two monitors as there is no bezel. Also i'm pretty sure LinusTech on youtube did a review of it and its less fortunate flat sister, JK :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Ok, thank you but do you think it would be possible to use a hdmi splitter, or i have seen boxes that have an hdmi from pc to box then 4 outputs will that work? By the way It wiuld not be a setup for gaming on all monitors just one with other pages open on the other.
    Also, through a quick google search i found this http://www.parts-express.com/hdmi-1-input-4-output-3d-splitter-ir-compatible--180-598 would this work?

    It is not about multi monitor or one monitor as long as it is a quality one (or few :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:). And yes, I know the pain of working on a crappy monitor for prolonged amount of time. I always look like a Tarsier :D

    To sum up, one monitor or ten monitors, doesn't matter as long as they are high quality.
