Dual Monitors of Amazingness

Post by Jesus on Fri Dec 17, 2010 2:19 am

I have dual monitors and I think I'm gonna cry because it's just that freaking awesome.

Edit: Also, I think this should probably be in Computers/Electronics but whatever.

My netbook does multiple monitors too, as does the 10-year-old pornobox in my basement. Christopher Mitchell at Cemetech has a rig with 4 independent monitors, now THAT is so awesome one could cry.

Had dual monitors, lost too much performance in games because of it, never used again.

If I get a real nice ATI card I might go tri-monitor at some point

Dual monitors is pretty cool on a netbook, because you have two different-sized screens at different heights and different angles, so it feels like a rig from The Matrix.

Yeah it did slow down my CAD programs quite a bit, but it was great for internet browsing and manipulating mods.

Unless you have an awesome computer like Christopher Mitchell, then it helps because you can do more.
