    I use my 42" LCD TV atm, once my daughter turns twelve we will be moving her into a bigger room and moving my son into her room, then it is time to turn his old room into my man cave where I will run a different setup, of course that is five years away.

    You should use Synergy to connect the mouse/keyboard of those two systems.

    I would but I use the secondary for while I am playing games or whatever. A majority of the time when I am not playing games or anything like that, I am using Windows 7 with both screens. Also, I don't have X start at boot because that would just be wasteful

    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.

    I have just ordered UK Filco Majestouch-2, Tenkeyless, NKR, Click Action, Keyboard which should get here soon, probably going to replace the trackball with something more fancy later on.

    Here is my current setup. Not sure if I want to change them, add more, or leave them. 2x 24" BenQ Q2400w monitors. This picture is a bit old. The only difference is that my computer is in many parts and there is a lot of random computer parts and tools all over my desk, which will get cleaned up when I feel like it.
