Re: [crt/lcd] want 3840 resolution for dual 27" monitors

I don't know that I would call this an upgrade though,.....

What was your intention or intended use for making the switch from a 30" 2560x1600 display to dual 27" 1920x1080,......?

Did you consider buying another 30" 2560x1600 monitor and possibly adding another video card to drive it,.....?

I have a triple 27" 1920x1080 setup (5760x1080) driven by an HD 6870 video card that I like just fine and I have two 2560x1440 monitors on different systems (GTX 260 / 8800GTS).

Some people would call the move you are suggesting a downgrade. Just curious as to what you are trying to accomplish.

This current 30 in monitor is the gateway xhd3000 model with all the problems those monitors had. It has had the card replaced but headed down hill again. So I would actually need to buy 2 to stay with the 2560x1600. about 2 grand.

I watch tv via homerun prime on the system so I dont want to give up and space. This is why I was going to go with 2 27in monitors. I would gain some space in width.

I like the 3 27in monitor idea.......I'd have to buy 6 tho...... the better hafe would want it too.

How much are you looking to spend? The 1920x1080 ASUS monitor models I have are each slightly different but basically look the same:


I have the VE278Q, VE276Q and VK278Q. I spent about ~$300 for each (over time since I didn't buy them all at once) so ~$249.99 isn't bad IMO.

The two 2560x1440 monitors I have are the same model Auria EQ276W 27” IPS and they were about ~$400 each from Microcenter:


A great price for a greate monitor IMO.
