Multiple monitor setups can be useful as long as you have enough space for them. They could work for eyefinity too.

For $20 you might as well. If you end up not using the second monitor, then you paid $20 for a backup. Not bad in my opinion.

Btw, the aw2310 is awesome! I can't stand 60Hz monitors anymore...lol

If it's old the screen might be starting to look darker if the bulb is wearing out. Though, for $20 I'd risk it if you could use it.
