    New Monitors recomendation

    hi,

    just looking for some recommendations for some new monitors. i currently have 3x Liyama E2407HDS (1920x1080).

    one has just died on me they have done me well for the past 6-7 years. but it time to get some replacements.

    i am looking at getting 3 27" monitors from Amazon in the UK as i have £400 in vouchers. its been a while since i last looked at monitors so any recommendations would be great.

    i use my pc for the odd FPS and RPG but mainly WOW and working with many VM's the reason why i am looking at getting 27" rather then 24".

    Edit: just another thought if 3 x 27" is going to work out very expensive i would consider 2 larger monitors.

    Thanks for your advice

    I know you currently have 1080p's. I was asking if you plan on changing to a higher resolution. 2 690s wont cut it for 4k, maybe for 2x1440p.

    Is Gsync important?

    i was not planning on 4k but maybe 1440p would be good.

    im not sure what Gsync rings to the table,

    my main goals are to be able to work with multiple servers without the screens being so small my work has well over 3,000 so i can be working on many at once.

    but by the sounds of things 2 larger monitors will be easier then 3x27?

    Just to be clear, you want 3x27'' or 2x30something'' monitors and have 400 GBP as budget for all? So you want real estate over everything else? Then maybe an ultrawide from LG? Like this one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/LG-29UM68-U.../dp/B01BFH194W For cheap 27'' 1440p maybe this one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00U2ZZX5A

    I have £400 of Amazon vouchers so I can top it up if needed so I can get what is best do you think 2 29" will give me more space then 3x24? As with the 24's I started to run out of space when I hit 6 servers.

    Or if you recommend some screens that are going to be a bit out of my budget I get get one or two now and get the other one next month or the month after etc

    Thanks so much for your help so far
