    I think he means both will give a 'screen' that is roughly 1.7 times as wide as it is tall.

    3no. portrait 16:9's will be larger though, so you'd be able to have a higher FOV all else being equal.

    Three 24" screens would be about the same size as a 40" TV.

    And there are 65" Free- and G-sync TV on the market, so no need for triples in portrait position.

    I can get 3*FreeSync 24" FHDs for roughly 400 €. How much is that TV?

    Yes. I understand you mean that it's roughly the same aspect ratio. But you said it's "the same" and that's wrong. It's way larger of course so...larger FOV.

    Curious.. Providing you can get them to line up can you run a 21:9 centre monitor with 2 x 16:9 side monitors?

    Don't see why not. As long as the vertical dimension of the monitors is the same. ACC is only projecting one long image across all three monitors.

    triple 24" in portrait is like a 52" screen, without any frames in sight, let me say, this triple setup idea doesn´t make sense at all.

    I'll keep asking odd questions.. :D

    I genuinely am curious.. Can you run 1440p centre 1080p sides?

    You maybe find screens wich fit perfectly in that way mounting, but I don´t know if every natively triple screen supporting game could handle that unusual style of setup.

    Edit: AC wouldn´t, you choose once the screen width for one screen, valid for all 3 screens.

    I said it's 'almost identical'. If you don't think that's the case, please demonstrate how.

    More like 42", but otherwise I totally agree.

    Wouldn't think so. It would all have to be 1080p.
    You could use resolution scale though to bring the central screen up to a fake native.

    Edit: but it feels like you may as well just run 3no. 1080 screens then, unless one 1440 monitor is useful for other tasks for you.

    The size inkl. frames of those triples would take space almost like 52" in the room, pure screen size would be more like 42", right.


    Example:
    ASUS PG258Q ROG SWIFT 24,5"
    As triple in portrait: w: 1152 mm h: 564 mm

    Edit, got wrong data, wide is only 990.

    So yeah, somewhere between 42 an 46"

    That did cross my mind. I am not sure which way I'll go yet.. Hopefully I can hold out another 12 months and see what the next gen GPU's bring. I am more just thinking out load and crosschecking every angle to see what is possible in the world of triples. I do like the sound of the new 49" 32:9 1440p however its pricey and hard to get where I live. That said 3 x 32" 1440p's are not cheap either however the extra FOV is really nice. I have never owned a 1440p monitor before. I think it must be a really nice sweet spot for gaming.

    Thank you guys for all your help. :cool:

    Yes, yes - but you never mentioned aspect ratio in your initial post on this. So it looked like you think that those 2 setups are generally "almost identical". Since I referred to vertical FOV in the post you quoted, that was very confusing. Triples like I described give you a lot of additional VFOV. Screen height would be ~50 cm, which is more than I have right now.

    Yeah, having a 4k monitor is great, and running stuff at that resolution can look very good, but it's such a massive FPS hit that I just just can't realistically run it on my rig. I think that the jump from 1080 to 1440 makes a big difference, but going to 4k isn't as big a visual jump for me. The extra pixle density is lost at a certain distance, for me.
    I run ACC at 1440p and it looks sublime on a single, lowly 28" monitor. I'd be very tempted to get triples if I thought I could realistically push that many pixles, but I know I'd really struggle ATM. A 1440p ultra-wide would be nice, but very expensive, and narrower FOV.

    But the graphics load that 3 x 1440p monitors would put on your system is enormous. A 32:9 1440p monitor has 7,372,800‬ pixels. 3 x 1440p monitors have a total of 11,059,200 pixels - considerably more than a even a 4k monitor (7,516,800).
