Getting alittle shrinkage eh??

Actually, besides eyefinity, multi monitors are wonderful... gameing on one, porn on the other, er I mean homework/bible study...

I will always run 2 monitors from now on.

Yeah, after making the move to two 1920x1080 monitors, I can't go anything smaller. It's just so nice having so much screen real estate!

Edit: And I wish nVidia would support nView on Vista / 7 with the GeForce cards... just because of this, my next card will be ATi... Sorry nVidia
