Wish I had one of those stands. But I have 4 monitors. :3

Ha touché. ;)

Ergotech does sell a quad monitor mount [link]
Or you could go for a horizontal 3 monitor stand and put the 4th on top with a wall mount.

Got a shot of your desk to share?

A rough one I took, [link] monitors are attatched to their stands. :(

Amazing Config!!! Let's talk! What monitor's stand system you are using to display all 3? Are ACER good enough displays? Thanks
splintered13 Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2012
I'm using an Ergotech stand that will fit up to 26" monitors (using extended arms). [link]

I've only used Acer monitors and have always liked the picture. It's not "top of the line" but looks close to it. I would recommend getting a 120Hz monitor if you do any games or HD video, looks much smoother.

One hell of a set, nice! ;)

Looks slick.

It's the wallpaper ;)

Damn it... It's your setup. LOL. Now, my PowerMac G5 video card died. I do some of my post work on the PC cause its just simply faster, but finding a video card for the Mac its a no win situation. Its that old. Damn.
splintered13 Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2011

I'm not familiar with MAC's. You can't drop a Nvidia / ATI card in there?
submicron Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2011  Professional Interface Designer
Yeah, yo can drop a nvidia or Ati card. The problem is this is an aging PowerMac G5 that's 6 years old. So the only cards I can drop in here are the old AGP graphic ones. LOL. Yeah, that old. I've already found a company that sells these components for my particular Mac. Of course, refurbished. I been meaning to migrate to my PC but the problem is finding Plugins for Photoshop an such. That's the only thing that's truly holding me back. I built my rig. Its watercooled and everything. Makes my Mac look like a preschooler's toy. LOL.
splintered13 Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2011
Would any of these cards work? [link]
I imagine the only issue would be drivers.
submicron Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2011  Professional Interface Designer
Actually, all those cards will work. The only problem is like you mention... Drivers. The good news is I bought the original that came with the Mac today.

I see you like Acer :p acer monitors and laptop

splintered13 Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2011
Nice catch on the laptop! I do like Acer. They make quality products at great prices.

Laptop is old. 15" screen, 1.6GHz Dual Core, 2GB RAM, 100GB HD updated to Win7 Pro.

Monitor specs added to description.
GhosTagE Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2011  Student Artist
haha I had a laptop that looked just like it :p but different specs. unfortunately, any acer product I have encountered has not been fair to me :( but each consumer gets different luck eh :P

is the triple monitor setup hooked up to the laptop? or is it all hooked up to a computer? was interested in the computer's specs xD I'm not a fanatic of monitors, even though I try to get the high quality ones :P I have my own preference of brands for most things I buy as well. I like Samsung for monitors and TVs :]
splintered13 Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2011
Everything's hooked up to my desktop (specs in description). I was going to get 3 23" Samsung monitors for this setup instead of the Acers (2ms response vs the 5ms I have now) but they didn't have VESA mounting. The 24" Samsung did but those were around $280 :shocked:
GhosTagE Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2011  Student Artist
ohh I see haha
updated the description I see :D pretty nice system.
are you liking the SSD? :D LOL I hopped on the bandwagon a little while back, trying it out in my laptop I'm going to have for school. I was so impressed I went out and got one for my desktop lol they're amazing :D

you game too I take it? :D
splintered13 Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2011
I love the SSD. Only bought it a few months ago - wish I did it sooner. I thought switching to an i7 cpu made things quicker but having a SSD blows that out of the water.

I do game. I play just about everything except MMO's. In addition to playing, I manage a gaming community (Team Regen) and am starting up (slowly) a review site [link]
Game profiles: Xfire | Steam | Raptr
GhosTagE Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2011  Student Artist
oh I completely agree. besides my graphics card, the SSD was probably the best upgrade I've ever made to my computer!

that's pretty cool :P I'll have to send you a friend request on Steam! I mostly play team fortress 2 but I can play other stuff :P my name is Sovereign
