    Default nVidia Surround

    Hi,
    Which 3 monitor setup would be best for the nVidia Surround. My budget is <$1000 and the bezel of the monitor needs to be thin. The bigger the monitors the better. as long as it is under budget

    Don't laugh, but try considering the monitors From DEll. Their PC's may be carp sometimes, but to be honest some of the best Displays I've seen have been Dells.

    This ones slightly over your price, they would have to be roughly $330 Each.

    3 of these would give you lots of screen

    Yea they look good but the bezel is quite thick. I seen some viewsonic monitors which were quite cheap. Are they any good? I will be mainly using these for gaming.

    Why are you so concerned with the bezel? Surely the screen size, resolution, and quality are more important than the bezel size?
    I'd go for something like http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=1427818

    With surround the bezel cuts off some of the image and can get quite annoying so a thin bezel is better.

    Ah ok, that makes sense. What did you think of the viewsonic I linked to?

    Don't know what games you are in to but I do a bit of sim racing & flying.
    I prefer a monitor with a native resolution of 1920x1200.
    I find it gives a more natural image.
    For example, the gauges are round & not oval.
    You won't get that with a cheap monitor.

    What GPU do you have? Probably worth checking if you can even run the games at a decent setting and framerate before you go and buy $1000 of monitors.
