How relevant is it to have matching LCD monitors for dual screen?
I noticed I was having some video tearing on my Linux system when using the twinview mode between my two LCD monitors. After a little research it was suggested that my refresh rates between the two monitors did not match, and when I checked it was indeed off by a small margin. Further research suggested that was definitely my issue and matching monitors would put the card under a lot less stress and take away from the tearing. Despite the fact I had not noticed any tearing in Windows (in fact, the tearing I was seeing seemed to be limited to only Nvidia cards) I had noticed that my entire basis of reading this was not OS limited at all and that I was reading this from a hardware standpoint. Even users on Windows web sites were suggesting to buy monitors in identical pairs.
That being said I figured I would ask here... in the future as I replace monitors for my systems, would it be more beneficial to the hardware to get matching monitors? I'm trying to understand this on a more technical level as opposed to "just do it, it's better."
There's no place like /home.
