What to do with my extra monitor?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, I have an extra korean 27" 1440 monitor, but i'm not quite sure what to do with it.

I got it because it was dirt cheap, but found myself wondering why I got it.

Currently, I have it in a dual monitor set up, which is nice for general use, but in gaming since 2 27" monitors are too large to have one centered and one off to the side, I have them set up so both are equally in the middle, but don't like during gaming where I constantly look to the left or right.

I'm also thinking about replacing my ( personally bought ) monitor at work, currently i have a 22" 1080p monitor, and the extra working space would help tons, but also reduce my already tiny desk space.


Or, I'm thinking about trying to sell/trade it.

Any ideas on what I should do with it?

just do regular multimonitor setup

use left side for browsing, youtube, or whatever you want and play only on one monitor on the right side. That's my setup

Thats what i'm doing currently, but the size of the screen puts the far left/right sides quite a bit away from my keyboard and mouse and it feels quite akward to be so far off center from the screen.
