Josh,

Just add a 2405 FPW in the middle of your two 2001FP's. It looks awesome enough. You aren't really doing more than 12 tables anyways and the 2405FPW is amazing as a main monitor. Makes my 2001FP look small... 30" would seriously be overkill IMO.

Ooo, This seems like an excellent idea. You've just convinced me that I don't need the 30" one. Thanks for saving me a k.

Do they look awkward if you have a 2405 next to a single 2001fp?

Nah, I had this until very recently. It looks fine.

So what's a good price for the 2405? (Now that you've pretty much sold me one)

I got mine for $500 with a computer and a 30% off coupon like a month ago. I think $750 is the lowest lately for just the monitor (though you could always just sell the computer).

I kind of lucked into my deal. I was going to buy it anyways.

How comfortable is this set up? I was led to believe that having 12 tables set up in a horizontal format would be very uncomfortable and potentially cause some neck problems.
How has your experience been so far?

What video card are you using to run all 3 monitors? I have two 2001FP and my new 2405FPW is arriving today. My video card only has 2 outputs though. Any suggestions?

What's going to be the deal with playing games on this monitor? Is there any potential problems, or will they just play out of the box, either with blacked out edges, or a wider panorama?

In order to get the 2560x1600 resolution you need dual-link dvi. I am not really sure which cards support this but I will tell you memory size isn't the determining factor. The chip the card uses will be. I'm pretty sure the nvidia 7800 series supports it as well as some of the newer ati chips. I'll look into it a little more.

Left-right does not tend to cause neck problems, as long as you take breaks (anything will cause problems if there are no breaks). Up-down, however, can easily cause neck problems and eye strain. We're well-adapted to living on a surface, not as good for a true 3-d world. Some biologists say that we're 2.5-d creatures, unlike dolphins and birds, which are accustomed to 3-d.
