thought about buying a korean display off ebay?  You can get the same 27" panel used in imacs with ridiculously high resolution. 

But, costs more :)

I did see the comments on this forum re the korean monitors but 24" will be quite enough and its a bit like buying realestate you start looking at house at one price nad end up looking at house that cost 25% more

I got 2x 23" acers last year. One failed and took about 2.5 months to be repaired - so maybe avoid Acer.

Other than that, they are good monitors tho. Paid about AU$140 each

Mons

So I got my new panels up. Bought one of those Brateck LCD Mounts 

I am having a bit of an issue with the 6450 card i put in. I wanted to run these two monitors of the DVI-Dual socket with a splitter ,another vga monitor of the other DVI-D single socket and the tv hangs on the HDMI socket . Seemed like a plan but it doesn't seem to want to split the signal for these two monitors.

Suggestions?
