Not super geeky, main desk has a monitor on a KVM with the house file/print server. I plug my laptop into that monitor regularly but I mostly just use my laptop for school work (Toshiba 2.4 GHz core 2 duo, 4 GB RAM) and the wife has the same.. My setup at work is another story

That is great. If they do a remake for whatever reason, he could be Boris easily.

That's good to hear about the video card... 22"-24" monitors are so cheap now, it's curious why more people don't run them. I know that ecost/tigerdirect/geeks has 24" all the time for $200, and 22" ones in the $150 range. Anybody want to recommend a dirt cheap dual DVI card or have one laying around they'll sell me.

I've never really understood about a lot of people that have more than one monitor. What exactly do you use them for? Why so much desktop space? I understand what its for, but I see a lot of people who don't do anything to really need them. My single 24'' has always done well enough for me. If I could add height and width, that would be nice, do a 24'' cube with 4 monitors.

Not sure what you classify as dirt cheap, but you can get 5770's in the $150-$175 range. Some have dual DVI. Or an older 4870 like I have has dual VI as well. They are also in the same price range.

I dont personally like multi monitors, but the idea is that you can have your CAD or whatever program maximized and being used actively while you have other data or information on other monitors.

For example: I often refer to drawings or datasheets for information and dont want to print them out. It sucks to alt-tab back and forth--especially with Pro/E because it's ******* stupid and has multiple windows and can't seem to remember which one I was last using.
