I think future OLED will get you bezel-less or frame-less monitor.
For now, IMHO Dell still has the smallest frame/bezel in their monitor.

I'm going for a 3 x LCD setup since I play FPS games.

This is a really good video showing how 6 screens does not work well for FPS.

But with 3 screens Eyefinity does wonders with FPS. With the screens rotated 90 degrees you get no middle bezel.

Do you have 6 video screens Rodney?

I'm starting to wonder if not having a DX11 card is going to be a problem for me this year. Already BFBC2 are using shadows that look blocky on my DX10.1 card.

For FPS, TPS and Racers the 3x2 setup is not ideal but for RTS and RPGs - OH MAN its heaven!

I'm receiving one of these video cards soon, so expect a video review soon, probably next week.

Great review. I totally agree that a middle row bezel in a 3x2 setup would be just distracting for most FPS games if not all games.
Now only if display manufacturers would all jump on the no-bezel display might this technology really see some strong interest.
