Dual Monitors

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So, I'm looking to buy two monitors to obviously put in dual screen.

These were the ones I was looking at:

Two of these:

Or these:

What do you think I should get?

What for? I'd rather have one bigger monitor than two small ones.

Same price, same amount of pixels, and you're getting a much higher quality display.

I want more space. Plain and simple.

That isn't the point, I want two monitors.

I was thinking today that I don't actually need to buy another two monitors, only the one since I already have my 1080p TV hooked up to my PC.

2 monitors is nice, but 2 poor quality, very low resolution monitors are nothing more than a waste of space.

Good point. But I think I'm most definitely getting one 19" monitor.
