I'm interested in upgrading my monitor setup, but unfortunately I know next to nothing when it comes to hardware. I've read the sticky RE: monitors but haven't found the answers to my question. Ideally what I am after is a triple monitor display, with 1 big monitor in the middle, and 2 smaller monitors flanking it (probably in portrait orientation). From what I've been able to discover it seems like this might work with either 1x24" + 2x17", or 1x27" + 2x19"?
It should look something like this:
What I am wondering is what do I need to be looking for in terms of resolution, and what monitors would be compatible? I'm leaning towards having a 27" monitor in the middle with 2560 x 1440 max res. If I wanted to flank this with 19" monitors, what resolution would I need them to be? If they are in portrait orientation, will the edges be flush with the 27" monitor, or will there be overhang?
Any advice as to which monitors would work together in such a setup would be greatly appreciated!
