With programming its really the more the merrier. If I could have every source file open on the screen at the same time I'd be one happy (and efficient) coder. The only limiting factors are how many monitors you can fit into your workspace and how many you can actually hook up to your PC.
I have 3 monitors, of which only 2 are hooked up due to one of them being very old and a port that I use being linked to that(1600x900 and 1280x1024) When I program either have 2 source files open or documentation open, you really can't go wrong with more monitors for the multitasking value they give you. say....anyone know of a deal on monitors?
