I just finished my triple monitor setup. Center is an Asus 23.6" 1920x1080 monitor, with two HP 1740s 1280x1024 (rotated-1024x1280) monitors. The Asus I bought new at around $160 or $170. Both HP monitors were previously owned and cost $40 and $20. I also payed $8 for an active mini displayport to DVI adapter that is required for Eyefinity.
So it's a cheap setup (price-wise), but triple-monitor setups today often have 3 widescreen monitors that are recent and of better brand.
I also cannot use all three right now, since the requited adapter and DVI cable I ordered has not arrived yet.
Some images below.
Just recently built my first computer, if you like to know the details, feel free to PM or comment to me. I also have a 5.1 surround sound speaker set. The subwoofer can be seen in the bottom right of the top pic (it's pretty big, IMO).

It's just someone showing their setup... Why the hate

On topic, it looks good. Eventually you will really want all of the monitars to be 1920x1080 but I understand people don't want to she'll out the money. Honestly two monitars that are widescreen 1920x1080 would be better, but it would still cost a bit more.

If you can't see why this thread is pointless, you probably shouldn't be on a forum.

It's related to "Computers and tech" (and indirectly, gaming) which is what this board is. Sharing rigs, setups, and "battle stations", is a VERY NORMAL PART of any and every forum or online community in general encompassing computers and/or gaming. So, realistically, you're the one who probably doesn't belong (read as: isn't up to date on how things work on a forum) - not surprisingly.

However, there should probably be a sticky or an often bumped thread specifically for posting these things.

Was going to say something, but curry-butt above me here already said basically what I was going to say.

Feel free to share yours if you would like, I would share mine but it's pretty boring.
