Right now so do I have 4 choices, when it comes to gaming (might add more for productivity):
5x 2560x1440 in portrait - 7200x2560
3x 3440x1440 in landscape - 10320x1440
3x 3840x2160 in landscape - 11520x2160
3x 3840x2160 in portrait - 6480x3840

It will be powered by 3 way 980Ti. It might not be enough for ultra, but should do for medium.

The monitors I'm looking at is: Asus PG279Q, Asus PG27AQ, Asus PG348Q
Or if Gsync is not worth it for those resolutions: Samsung U24E850, Samsung U32E850, Samsung PA328Q.

Sorry, I have no experience with the monitors you're considering, but my suggestion is to get the one with the absolute least bezel possible.

I'm going to deal with some bezle regardless, specially on the portrait setups.
But the Asus monitors seems to have smaller once, then the Samsung monitors.

Well, looking at your choices, you have different sizes and some are 144hz while others are 60hz...

These are big differences, choosing btwn 27 inch panels and 32 inch panels and more than double the hz.

If you are ok with 60hz, consider the BenQ BL3201PT I believe is the code in the EU. I really like the features of it, goes both landscape/portrait. 3 of those in portrait would look pretty amazing.

I would personally stay away from the new PG279Q only because there are so many quality control issues.
There is also the ACER XB271HU, same as the PG279Q but cheaper.

Good Luck

I saw this:

I think that is my new game setup.
And since Asus seems to get better reviews then Acer, when they dont talk about quality issues, so will I go with Asus PG279Q.

Having the monitor edges not "flush" with each other would drive me crazy...but that's just me.

I think the reasoning was that you only see 1 bezel that way. Also those monitors are debezeled.
Not sure I will do ether, but I will end up with the same screen size.
