Hey guys, first off would you guys recommend dual monitors, or triple monitors? I game and multi-task ALOT.

My budget is about 200$ per monitor. I want 1080p or 1440p, and i guess 120hz because it's better than 60hz right? I was looking at this monitor, do you think a 23" is too small?
also, what monitor stand would you guys recommend?

I use triple monitors at work (all about multitasking). And a single 1440p monitor at home for gaming. Its great, and I can't recommend it enough.

Triple monitor gaming isn't supported on all games. Some games have work-arounds, where the game screen is "stretched" to the width of all three monitors. Don't expect flawless gameplay on triple "EYEFINITY" setups. Its neat on some games though, like racing games or FPS's.

You can't go wrong with 1080p or 1440p. I guess its just up to how much your budget can take! And the same goes for 60hz vs 120hz. If you can afford to get 120hz+ and you would like to experience that, then maybe you'll have to break the piggy bank and increase your budget. If you got 3 x 1080p 60hz monitors, you will not be disappointed though. Its awesome.

I have 3 different monitors, :D so its not exactly uniform, but its great. 1 LG 20", 1 Acer 22", and my laptop 15" Lenovo.
At home I chose the business styled Samsung S32D850T 1440p 60hz.

Another warning, some games that can't do windowed mode, will black out your secondary monitors while gaming. Not all games, but some. Just make sure to adjust the video settings to windowed if you can.
