What you have there appears to function like nvidia surround, but... only with two screens?

I downloaded a program called DisplayFusion. Works amazing at managing multiple monitors. It allows you to do just about anything you want with the wallpapers. The coolest thing is that when you stretch a wallpaper across both monitors, you can move each wallpaper individually on each screen, as if it hides behind the monitor bezels. (So that it doesn't look weird)

It also gives you access to many different macro keys for organizing your windows on multiple screens.

I use UltraMon for mine. Looks like many options out there

My next plan is to mount my 32" Sceptre 720p TV on the wall above the dual monitors. Not entirely sure what I'm going to use it for yet.

The sceptre 1080 32" 3d 60hrz is on sale regularly on newegg for $250

Obviously not, since that isn't what he is using. And nvidia has had surround "forever" too, it just doesn't "work" with two screens, since it is nearly pointless anyways.

And eyefinity doesn't duplicate your taskbar.

Thanks anyway man, but I already own the TV. Not a bad price though, considering I paid $350 for it under a year ago.

I just need to figure out what type of wall mount I want to use. Due to the nature of my dual monitor desk mount, it means my desk needs to be a good 1-2 feet away from the wall, so I'm looking for a TV mount that has some sort of an extension arm.

dont judge this too harshly, as it will soon be moved into a new case, and when that happens it wont be nearly as ghetto modded (its moving to a new LD PC-V8, making a nice computer for my fiance in what i call "Project Sweetheart" no build log yet as the project isnt officially started yet).

this is my "guest computer", pretty much scavenged from parts from upgrades and what not, it is watercooled however it is a modded H60/H100 ghetto mod

I have used DisplayFusion and UltraMon for over a year each, and they are both good programs. I'm currently using Actual Multiple Monitors and I love it. Been using it for about a month so far. I only need it to use two backgrounds, and for the second taskbar on my left monitor, so I haven't investigated the other tools, but from what I read on it when looking for a new program to try, it has more features than the others. Another handy feature is it puts a couple of buttons next to your min/max/close buttons on every window to move the window to the other monitor, or full screen the window across all monitors. I can't recall if the others had this or not... If they did, I didn't make use of it until using AMM.

This thread isn't about judging... It's about showing off what you have, no matter what it is.

And yes, that IS ghetto and should probably be the mascot for this thread. lol

I just ordered this one for over my eyefinity set, can be very close to the wall or out pretty far. Hope to have it up in a week or two.
