Default Split screen monitors on one bigass?

What are you guises opinions on this? I have a 19" widescreen monitor now but yeah, it reached its limit. I need more screen area, I have a 32" tv but that is only for movies really. So I'm thinking get another 19" and do a split screen or give this to my brother and get one bigass like 23" or something. We have 23" Dell's at school and I'm just like wow I need more screen! OR keep my 19" AND do a split screen with a 23" hahaha. big and small...

doing split screens on a small screen just allows you to open more crap. but a BIGGEr single screen aloows you to utilize More area Per application. for say cad/solid works. id say one big one for now. then wen you get back into Gaming. get a radeon EYEFinity Setup and run 3!!!!!!!! Yes 3 monitors not just widening the picture. as to stretch it across 3 screen but to actually attain More Field Of View!!! YESSSSSS

I have a 22inch monitor, its farking huge. Its almost so big you cant get far enough away from it when sitting at a desk. When playing some games where i have to watch lots of different things I find my self turning my head to look from one side of the screen to ther other lol

Any bigger then 22 and your gonna need to sit several feet away. Also, I had my computer hooked up through my TV which was a 42 inch at the time, and sitting on the couch 4 feet away with it in 1080 and no one could read any writing on screen lol I had to lower the rez when going through computer to read it lol Games looked awesome tho, the font is bigger in games so it wasnt an issue to read, just on the desktop and the internet were hard to see.

Unfortunate I'm over 2hrs away and I'm working this weekend. Let get a hold of my buddy and see what he's get and ill post up what I get from him. Sometimes I can get some computers from him too. I'm not much up on computers so ill find out what he has. Most of the time he just gives me this stuff and if its anything you or anybody else wants you can have it.
