Well what I was thinking is that I'm going to end up using these things for general use and work too, right? With how rare these CRTs are, and how much rarer they get every year, if I used three at once even outside of games I'd be using up their lifespan for no reason whatsoever. By the time one of them dies it would be nearly impossible to replace. But if I stick to the two CRTs I already have and just use one at a time, I can get away with using them for a good 10-20 years.
And since the side monitors stay mostly in the peripheral vision, it's not like you NEED them as accurate as the center screen.
I figured it would be a good compromise
