Added a 24" Soyo monitor that I got for $40 shipped plus repair to replace faulty caps. With 24" 1920x1200 in between the 2 existing 21" 1920x1080 I have really wide view. The extra wide view came in handy when I wanted to run prime95 to test my overclocked dual Xeon rig (24 processes)
Trying to expand 24 little windows over a single monitor would have been quite hard.

I have deal 22" acers, I just mounted them on a dual screen stand so now both the screens line up perfectly.
Even though multi monitor stands can be a bit pricey they really improve the feel of the work area, as when it was just 2 screens standing on a desk they would always end up out of line, having them mounted in a screen stops me from acidently missaligning them, I have had multi monitor set ups since 2007 and since adding the stand yesterday this is the first time a dual screen set up has felt complete. I plan to adjust the stand to make the screens a bit higher but over all I am very happy with it.
this is the stand for any one interested: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/scanf...inity-scalable
I'm on my tablet in the living room right now but I will post some pics when I go up stairs
edit: some pictures added, I didnt realize how untidy my desk was till I took the photos.
I'm thinking of adding bias lighting but I am not sure how effective it will be with a black wall behind the screens?
