Hey guys, basically I have a dream of owning 4 screens. I will get the screen brackets for the table later on, first I need some advice/recommendation on the 4 screen setup in case you have some helpful info/tips. Here's a bit more info of what I am trying to do, so please do read on...

1. What Is Your Country Of Origin?
  • Australia
2. What do you plan to do with this monitor? (ex. Games, Movie Watching, Photo Editing, etc.)
  • Main screen is for gaming, photo/video editing
  • 3 secondary screens are for multi tasking (discord, browser, music, etc).
3. What resolution and screen size do you want?
  • All 4, strictly 1920x1080.
4. What refresh rate do you want? (ex. 60 hz , 70 hz.)
  • For the main screen I need it to be 240Hz, the other 3 need to be 60Hz.
5. How much are you looking to spend?
  • Preferably around 1.5k$. (AUD) (Or less, if possible)
6. Brands Preferred (ex. Samsung, Acer, Asus, AOC, HP, Viewsonic, etc. )
  • No preference on brands.
7. Brands Not Preferred (state reason why)
  • N/A
8. Are You Buying More Than One Monitor?
  • Yes. 1 x 240Hz, 3 x 60Hz.
9. How Many Displays Can Your GPU Support Maximum? And what GPU and driver version are you using if applicable?
  • 3 x Display Ports, 2 x HDMI. I am currently using Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 Gaming OC.
10. What Port Do You Want To Connect To (ex. DVI-D, HDMI, etc).
  • Doesn't matter what ports. Obviously the 240Hz has to be Display rather than HDMI.
11. Is This Monitor A Primary Display Or A Secondary Display?
  • 1 x Primary, 3 x Secondary's.
12. Is This A Secondary Display For A Laptop?
  • No, no laptop involved.
Thank you kindly.

I'd suggest all monitors to be the same size. It will make dragging objects between screens much easier.
So Asus VC279H (instead of VC239H).

Dragging objects between different sizes isn't much of an issue. I do it daily on my dual setup...

Thank you guys for recommendations, but there's 1 problem. I've got the following sockets on the GPU:
  • 3 x Display Ports
  • 2 x HDMI Ports
- As shown below:


So I'd need 3 x Screens with HDMI/Display and the main 240Hz (4th screen) preferably running via Display Port.
- I am planning on using 2nd HDMI socket on this GPU for a HDMI connection to a TV (so 5th socket is reserved).

The 280hz screen comes with DP which is ideal for high FPS gaming. The remaining 3 screens comes with HDMI so you need to use an adapter with one of them...
