Function over form all the way.
I totally agree, but glossy screens make the picture look awful if there is any light in the room. Since you are doing eyefinity, you can expect the monitors to reflect each other.

Excuse my ignorance, but I'm not familiar with eyefinity. How does that play a part in the Monitors reflecting each other?

You have three monitors to give peripheral vision when gaming. Here's what my setup looks like (sorry for iphone pic):



Since the monitors tend to be placed angled inward, glossy monitors would glare off each other.

So I understand that, but you mentioned "Since your using Eyefinity..." so I was assuming that eyefinity had something to do with the reflection...

It's absolutely amazing. There still isn't a card with enough VRAM though.

oh, well no. Monitors for eyefinity need to be tilted inward a lot more than regular triple monitors though.

It came to $95 with shipping.

By "tilted", I mean like this: /-\ (top view), not actually leaning up or down.

It does that sometimes. Can you pull up the log and see exactly how long it's taking for each percent?
