Simple poll.

I want to see who uses just a single monitor and who uses special display modes.

I have a 22" widescreen LCD in 1680x1050 and a 19" standard LCD in 1280x1024 for secondary using dualview.

Dual view. Couldn't live without it at home.

2 19" Samsung CRT's at 1280x1024.

37" Westy & 24" Sammy - Dualview (can't live without dual monitors).

At one point I was running: 37" Westy, 24" Sammy, 19" Viewsonic, and one of my 19" Dells, that's right 4 monitors! :D (2 separate video cards). It took me forever to scroll across, but I could be surfing on one, gaming on another, coding/working on a 3rd, and monitoring system status on a 4th. :)

One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
Two can be as bad as one
It's the loneliest number since the number one

No is the saddest experience you'll ever know
Yes, it's the saddest experience you'll ever know
`Cause one is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
One is the loneliest number, worse than two

It's just no good anymore since she went away
Now I spend my time just making rhymes of yesterday

One is the loneliest, number one is the loneliest
Number one is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
One is the loneliest, one is the loneliest
One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
It's just no good anymore since she went away
(Number) One is the loneliest
(Number) One is the loneliest
(Number) One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
(Number) One is the loneliest
(Number) One is the loneliest
(Number) One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do

lol

If you count my TV, which I occasionally hook up to to watch movies/shows (torrents), my laptop and my secondary computer, then I have 4. But honestly, I'm on single view 75% of the time I'm on the computer.

I just have one. I have tried dual mutliple times before but I have a lot of problems configuring what to show up on what monitor, etc. I would like it if I could game on one and be browsing on the other or use the other for work. But I can't seem to get it right.


Ya..say it..n00b.

Almost everything will default to your primary display, the desktop, games, and videos. Mine lets me switch between everything else and games smoothly and flawlessly if the games are windowed.

I use a 47" primary monitor, and very rarely (maybe two times now) a 19" secondary monitor.

IMO more than one monitor for gaming is annoying because of the division(s) in your view.
