Default VESA triple mount system?

Anybody have experience with VESA mounting systems. I'm trying to find a good quality triple mount to mount three 24'' monitors side by side, but can't find any of them for sale with the kind of info I need (like if they will actually fit my monitors). Most of the stock images I see show non wide aspect monitors. I'd be pissed to spend $200+ on a mount and have it not fit. What is a good brand to look out for? Never been baller enough to have a triple setup like this, until now of course.

Three of these on the way:

I already have a damn nice 24'' Samsung, but to buy 2 more matches to it would cost another $1000, expensive ****. It will be on the other side of the desk on the oddjob computer.

you should get 24in monitors with a better Resolution. TVs use 1920 x 1080. A computer monitor well the good ones use 1920x1200. As for the mount any should work as long as the monitor supports VESA. VESA is more of a standard now a days.

Basically this. I was already for sure doing 2, and decided for only $200 a pop, why not get a third and open up a nice opportunity to play some racing sims. Plus when is more desktop space bad? Can't have too much.

I'm thinking I may just get 3 separate single mounts. That way I can be sure it will work, and I can have a bit more flexibility in mounting, though it won't be as clean.

Three will be a bit crazy though, that's 6' of monitors, lol.

We install a lot of monitor arms- mostly Humanscale and Ergotron. Lot of doubles and quads out there, don't think I've ever seen a triple.

Here's one: http://www.ergotron.com/Products/tab...S/Default.aspx Rated for maximum monitor width (outside) of 20" each.

Is there something wrong with just putting them on the stands that they come with?
