    I finally started using two monitors about a month ago and hard to go back to just one now. It's alot better doing everything now.

    I'm wondering if you guys have more than one monitor too?

    I have 5 total, only keep one on at a time as of late, as I get so distracted that nothing ever gets done. xD

    I use two and I love it. My original goal was using 3.... but I haven't gotten there yet. Some games look *so* awesome with a triple display, especially shooters.

    The only thing that annoys me is when people buy cheap monitors with thick framing so you end up getting big gaps in between :/

    I also think triple monitor displays kind of look better when they are set up portrait versus landscape.

    I have 2 but they are not the same size so I just use it as a second screen, not for continuous dual monitor gaming.

    I have 3 screens, but only know how to connect to 1 other at a time, I use my tv and an older fat back monitor usually just for watching shows while doing other stuff. Was fixing another computer but it was so screwed no point in trying to get it working again.

    That's what I do too. Game on one screen, randomness on the other. Woo for games that have windowed mode option :p

    Depending on how new/good your video card is, you might not even be able to do 3. When I bought mine, I was under the impression that it could handle 3.... but it does not. Whomp whomp :(

    If I'm not mistaken you can achieve 3 screens by buying a USB powered one as the 3rd one but it won't be great for gaming, just for regular tasks.
