This is pretty amazing! Although two isn't suitable for gaming due to the bezel being in the middle but once you get the third monitor, you'll have yourself one kick-ass setup.

Can I ask where you get panels?
I would love to do something like this.
Would probably like to try and do a seamless 5760x1080, need to get edgeless panels.
Is there such a thing and where?

I bought locally, bargain but for 35$ incl shipping (each) I can buy a ton of them lol

Biggest disadvantage of this setup are TN panels which has very low angles of visibility (left and right is even ok, but up/down is horrbile) and if you do portrait as I am you see right/left AS down/right so not good for gaming or pro use

This is not a problem for me bcoz i will use these 2-3 panels above my main monitor to display markets/stock exhange/email etc
