Triple Monitors

    My current setup was purchased 2nd hand to get an idea if I would like triple screen. They are 24" benq monitors, TN running 1080P and 60htz. There are a couple of thinks I do not like about my current monitors. Bezel size (15mm) and they look a little washed out. With the current setup at 60htz I don't see any picture problems

    I am now thinking about buying something a bit better. I will prob stay at 24" 1080p as I believe 27" 1080 is stating to look palpitated and I quite often do other things on the rig when not racing. I also think a 1080Ti will struggle with 3 x 2560x1440 to get a decent FPS

    So my remit is 24", the thinnest bezel possible and IPS instead on TN

    Any views, thoughts and suggestions as to what monitors to buy. Max budget £200 each monitor

    Oh and before anyone suggests VR, I already have a Rift but still want 3 monitors

    Do you not get on with the rift? I haven't gone back to my 144Hz since getting my rift

    I do but when racing prefer triples. Use the rift when just playing :)

    So my experience on triple:

    3 x 27" 1080 should be very good with 1080ti.
    Even 3 x 32" still 1080 should be OK and I think you won't see the pixel as 4xAA would smooth the picture.

    I believe also that 3x1440 will be too much for a 1080ti.

    I think that Samsung curved 32" is an option to consider.

    The VR crashers....

    I had a good triple setup with 23" Dell Monitors. They had 6 mm bezel and were quick in response. Dunno the exact name anymore but they were great.

    I think the important stuff is: bezel, response time, colour accuracy, angle stability.
    For the latter - go with IPS technology, it's the best currently available until proper OLED screens hit the shelves. Don't get lured in by the screens (forget the tech name) with 1 ms response time...they look odd already at small angles from 90. Get an IPS with 4 or 5 ms instead.

    I'm satisfied with this setup: 3x LG24MP68VQ monitors. 2.5 mm bezels, IPS panel, 75Mhz, 5ms, Freesync, etc. Seems to meet all your requirements except you won't have to spend all your budget. Widely available.

    Looks very very similar to the AOC but without Display Port. Only thing is the VESA mount is near the top instead of the middle.

    You say your bezel is 2.5mm. Does the screen go all the way to the bezel or is there a boarder on the screen?

    Yes, VESA mount is above the centreline. My screen image does not go all the way to the bezel so the total width of the 'black' is 5mm. I'm not tech savvy enough to know if there is a way to get the image to go all the way to the bezel.

    Freesync is useless with NVidia and GSync would cost you pretty penny.

    My only recommendation is to go as big as you can fit/afford. I've had triple 24", 27", and 32" and bigger makes all the difference in the world. Started with 24", moved to 32" and it was mega but they were 720p tv's and eventually I got tired of that. Got three 27" 1080 BenQ monitors, image quality and smoothness is way better but the reduction in vertical size always left me a bit disappointed. So for me 27" is the minimum I'd go, but if you've never been on bigger triples then ignorance is bliss and 24" would probably be fine.

    Ever considered single 40"+, takes less room than triples plus more useful in non racing games as you can still use all screen real estate.

    I saw a new Samsung screen at a supplier event a couple weeks ago, the Samsung guy was really trying to sell it hard; was about to be released apparently.

    Anyway it was so damn wide and curved you would have the fov of triples on a single screen. Just not quite tall enough for me. Was something over 6000 odd pixels wide by 1080p iirc. Looked very cool tho!

    I thought about triples a lot but in the end went for a 35" curved 1440p gsync bla blah..
    Gives me so much more view than old 24" single screen that I am happy till VR sorts out the resolution issue in a few years.
    Oh yeah at the same event the Nvidia Sales Manager guy had absolutely no answer to my question om how long till one of their Gpus could drive VR in 4K lol.
    Apparently they are at least working with all the major VR manufacturers.

    It's not the hardware manufacturers that they need to work with, it's the software developers. Pascal was released with much fanfare about 'single pass stereo' etc. to improve VR rendering and two years later there's little (any?) sign of it being used.

    I have bought 1 of the AOC monitors to give it a go. Used to have a 40" 4K but not as good as triple.

    24" Is big enough for my rig and space in limited

    You can try out if the 1080Ti can manage larger resolutions in triple by simply using DSR (it is a bit of a PITA to set up when using triple monitors in NVIDIA surround, as you have to deactivate surround first then set up DSR for each individual monitor to enable their higher resolution, then enable surround and make sure the wanted higher DSR are available to pick).

    I run 3x 27" 1080 Asus monitors for years and find them borderline small for triple screens - the screens are very high on my update list.

    With todays widescreen monitors the biggest limitation in triple screen setups really is the small vertical space the monitors allow for clipping severely what you can realistically display of the car's interior while you are already clipping off the rear view mirror and window frame of most cars when setting up correct FOV.

    Bigger is always better with triple screens, I am afraid.
    I could never ever imagine doing ANYTHING on a 24" screen.

    If you put money into this, upgrade size, you won't regret it.

    Sadly you will not see OLED screens as monitors for a long time if ever, had a chat with an LG guy recently and OLED has the same burn in issue as plasma did so can’t leave a static image on them, hence not suitable for PC screen use. This is also why Samsung has not invested in the tech and has instead pursued their QLED tech instead as it doesn’t have that isssue.
