    Two computer monitors, some questions.

    Have you got two or three monitors ? Is it worth it ? What are the advantages and disadvantages ?

    I myself think it's easy and usefull when gaming on one screen, and chatting on the other, aswell as multitasking while watching a movie (as an example, a boring part and you decide to browse MPGH while it plays).
    I'm thinking about getting a second monitor, it's like €100 for the exact same monitor that I've got atm (otherwise it doesn't look as good, I guess ?), so why not ? Tell me in your reply.

    I'm using two 23 inches, when I disconnect one of them everything feels so wrong/slow/donotwant, usually keep spotify/msn windows on my second one, sometimes youtube videos if I wanna watch something while browsing MPGH on my main monitor.
    You can't go to the other monitor while playing a fullscreen game though, because the game will minimize

    I've used 2 monitors before, it's worth the money, that extra space can be a wonderful thing.

    What about games that use Windowed Menu mode ? (e.g. the game keeps runnign while you browse to other stuff with Alt+Tab)

    Doh
    I myself got 2 monitors.
    It's great while gaming and skyping, or watching youtube videos and browsing mpgh.
    It's really awesome for programming and googling.
    Would definitely buy.

    definitely get a 2nd monitor, i use it all the time with video-editing.
    btw 2 different screens are fine too, at least i don't really find it disturbing.

    I'm currently using a 25 inch monitor and used my old ancient ~18 inch monitor as a second monitor. It was pretty useful and the experience is nice. I eventually swapped the ancient piece of shit for a new one. If you got the spare money, I would suggest you buying it. Also, it wouldn't necessarily have to be the same size.
