I have a 17" and run most of my games @ 1600x1200.

got a sony 420gs 19''
desktop @ 1152x864 (Yes, even such resolutions exist)
most FPS @ 800x600 or 1024x768.
Second v-card (ATI something) ready to plug another monitor into. Actually, I've already tried running a dual monitor system with win98 and I must say it was very easy to get it up and running. (surprised even me..

btw, if you're still got less than 17'', go out and buy a 19''.

I have a temporary Acer 15" 33D borrowed from a friend. I plan to buy 2 17" monitors (Gemstar brand) sometime next week and get a nice dual-monitor setup going for debugging.

My old 17" monitor took a crap because my comp. was in my kitches forever and the magnetic fields of the chest freezer, microwave, and refrigerator warped it beyond belief.

I'll be glad to get back to 1280x1024 resolution (this 15" only supports 800x60...god, I'd forgotten how crappy that res is!)

My work monitor is a 21" PanaSync E21 (but the OS thinks its a Nokia 17" because Panasonic''s drivers for it really stink! I couldn''t go over 60 HZ in 1152x864 but it has no prob with the Nokia driver)

At home I use a NEC 17" M700, the funky one with the speakers and mic built in.

Dual Display:

IBM 6091 19i (old and fixed frequency (eugh!) but 19 inch )
Belinea 15" - new but small

A decent combination, the best of both worlds, as it were

Ok, I have a EIZO FlexScan F55 (Color Display Monitor !!!)

1024x768 / 85 Hz

Compaq MV720 17" 1280 x 1024

From 17" and higher I don''t think it really maters. And yes, if have played on a bigger one, and it is a big difference, but not by far as big as the step from 15" to 17". My eyes hurt when I''m behind one of those again.

Well, call me Mr Poor-payin-for-college-himself
Late last year I got a used, although seemingly pretty new, CTX 15" monitor ($25 along with a 486-25 system...I only cared about the monitor)
It does amazingly support 1280x1024x32-bit just fine though, although I only use 800x600 for my desktop.
Ah well, a new cheapo puter was first, a new monitor will come later

a 17 inch KFC Chromaclear (whatever). I''m considering a dual display solution, is it any good?


#37 Melo   Members

WOW - so many posts - well let''s say 17" are the standard size, so the best res. would be 800x600 or 1024x768.

Sad thing I realize now is that as nice as my Panasonic S17 is I paid way to much for it 3 years ago. Back then a .26 pitch 16.1" viewable was amazing and at $699 it was expensive. Still love it though.


Hey how many of us run dual monitor configurations and have you enjoyed it or has it been as bug laden as I hear it is?

i have been using multi monitor for a while now, and although it can cause problems it provides so many advantages it is incredible.

Imagine doing your code with VC++ open on one monitor and gamedev.net, MSDN or the latest tutorial you have found open on the other. It makes things so much easier.

I still havn''t tried multimonitor debugging when in fullscreen though, as I have read so many nightmare stories about it.

I would also like to just confirm that multimonitor under Windows 2000 works extremely well (better than 98).

Multimonitor - get it, try it, love it

As I wrote before, I''m considering whether a dual monitor configuration would be good for me!

How is it to setup? I mean will me BIOS complain when I''m using a AGP and a PCI/ISA gfx adapter, and how about windows? (win 98SE currently!)
