I personally think the 21.5" monitors work the best as they do not take overly too much space on the desk as well as there is a point if you sit close to your desk that you will not be able to see even some of the peripheral stuff on your side monitors due to how big your centre one is.

I've never really bothered to worry about the response time of the monitors. Most people cannot visually notice a difference (even if they claim they do) due to how fast that still is. Also, the times most manufacturers put on there are of the fastest time they could find the monitor running at, not necessarily its average/normal response time too.

I agree with Arinoth. Unless you have ample space, 21.5" monitors are a good size for the average desk. Also, if you've never noticed the difference between 5ms and 2ms, there is no reason to splurge extra cash. It would be best if you can go to CC or BB to see these monitors in person and make a decision from there. Specs are just numbers.

Nice setup. I especially like the depth of your desk. That's a pretty beefy desk to be able to put a 800D on, too...
