Default Extra Monitors Opinions?

Hey All,
So i'm interested in amping up my monitor setup a little bit from its current.

Currently i'm running triple monitors the main one is a 27" HP 2709m HD LCD Monitor (my baby ), with the two secondary's being 1 15" Dell Monitor via VGA and 1 17" Dell VGA (Lame but I got them for free)

Basically I was wondering peoples opinions on the two routes im looking to go.

1st route: Buy a second HP 2709m, Ive seen a couple of them available for around 250-280 price range.

2nd route: Buy 2x 20+ inch other monitors [Looking for recommendations]

What do you guys think and if buying 2x smaller monitors what brand and model (id likely buy these of newegg) Thanks!

Second router by far. 2 monitors is not enough at all. I wish i had a 3rd as well. Dell has some GREAT monitors i hear, but they're usually in the $500 range.
