I dont see the point of having three 144z monitors, unless youre playing games on all three or something.

Two 60z monitors, and one 144hz would be good. You're not going to notice a difference using a 144hz vs 60z for general use. The refresh rate is only important for gaming really.

pcpartpicker.com/product/3T22FT/d...or-se2719h <- 60hz Monitor $180

It's difficult to find a 144hz monitor for under $250 thats 27" and has a 1ms response time. This one is 4ms, but it's still decent, so here's my suggestio:
pcpartpicker.com/product/DQ6qqs/a...umhe3aaa01 <- 144hz Monitor $200

Thanks Kara. Yeah since I won't be buying 3 144hz I'll probably spend more on on 1 and then just get 2 plain 60 hz monitors

$300 for a 1080p monitor? What a waste. Instead of paying anywhere near that much for a 1080p monitor, this is the list of 27"+ 1440p144Hz displays you should actually be looking at;
pcpartpicker.com/products/monitor...1651000000



OP - What are your PC specs?
What's your actual budget for all the monitors?
What will the monitors be used for exactly?

If it were me, I'd buy a nice 3440x1440 high refresh rate display, and then a nice 4k60Hz or 1440p144Hz panel for the side. It depends on your use case/preferences though obviously. A 3440x1440 and 16:9 aspect ratio monitor might make zero sense in your situation.

Pc specs: i7 9700k
Rtx 2060
64gb ram
2tb hard drive 1tb ssd

Budget 1000-1500

I mainly game and I'm a programmer so I use it to to read and write code on one monitor and then view live trending data on another and I like to have one more to watch twitch and YouTube as I work. Thanks 21.

Yeah, I'd honestly be grabbing a 1440p144Hz monitor and a 3440x1440 high refresh rate monitor. That way you can switch between 21:9 and 16:9 for games/movies, depending on what you're playing/watching.
Also, if you're playing a game on the 16:9 1440p monitor, you can use the ultrawide for all of the other tasks you like to have open.

Here are the $300ish 1440p high refresh rate monitors I'd be considering;
pcpartpicker.com/product/DNH8TW/g...itor-g27qc
pcpartpicker.com/product/g6dxFT/p...itor-px329

and then ultrawides;
monoprice.com/product?p_id=38035&...0b0a18050d
amazon.com/MSI-Non-Glare-UltraWid...amp;sr=8-2

I'd spend the extra $60 for the MSI monitor in this case though tbh. I just don't personally know enough about the Monoprice monitor to justify saving $60 on it over the MSI monitor, which I know is a stellar monitor.


If you're not interested in that, and/or really need/want 3 monitors as opposed to 2, then I'd buy either a 3440x1440 high refresh rate monitor or one of the 1440p165Hz monitors as your main panel, and then just get 2 x 1440p60Hz or 4k60hz monitors for each side of your main monitor.
1440p60Hz panels can be had for a little over $200 and 4k60Hz around $300ish. You'll see some decent 4k60Hz panels for $250 now and again, but stock is trash right now it seems.
