My monitor is new from last week.  ;D
22" 1680x1050 widescreen (Philips 220EW)
I find it just the perfect resolution for most programs, few games like Mass Effect and Crysis i run in windowed mode.
Spore has made us gods even before we are worthy of being men.

So how do most games you play run on three monitors?
Just curious.
Like an RPG or RTS for example.

well... a picture is worth a thousand words  ;)

this is not my rig btw, just something i found on google... mine is similar though... only the desk is considerably more messy :P





Cheers

I've found 22'' widescreen to be the sweet spot for me.  Not too big, not too small.
Ditto. I might move up to 24" the next time I need to replace my main monitor, but much larger wouldn't work for me. I've tried playing on a 30" Dell, and it's just too big when its on a desk right in front of me.
