Default Re: Help me choose my next piece of hardware.

How far away are you going to be sitting from said 37" monitor?

Becuase there is actually a limit to the size of a screen that the human eye considers "normal".

It's like sitting on the front row of a movie theater.... yeah it's huge but kills your eyes.(or mine at least). I've noticed that with my 22" screen, I've got it pushed back further on my desk and I actually sit back a bit further in my chair rather than hunched over at the screen.

Mabey if you wallmount the 37" screen it won't be as bad.

That would definitely be a wall mount. Or I would get a wireless mouse/keyboard and sit in bed and game!
