Bought a new toy today - not M/C related...

I've put this off for a long time, 'cause there's nothing wrong with my current monitor. But I couldn't pass up this deal on a 17" flat-panel.
Samsung SyncMaster 712n - a $420 monitor for $250 after a Samsung $50 rebate and a Best Buy $120 rebate. Now whatamIgonnado with a perfectly good KDS Avitron 17" CRT monitor? So far I am liking it a lot - it sure is BRIGHT though. Not that you could tell by this photo...

Why get a video card thats supports 2 monitors? Just plug a second card in and run 2 cards (cheaper)

Re: Bought a new toy today - not M/C related...

Geez, that's a nice buy at that price.

For you twin monitor guys, how's that work? Looking at two of the same images? Split screen? What the hell?

Its usually an extension of your monitor. Desktop stuff is on one side and you scroll all the way accross and put what you want over there.

We used to used them at work for massive spreadsheets but for home I think the 1 monitor thing works fine but I do want to hook mine up to the TV

It rocks for programming in addition to doubling screen space you can run the program on one screen while debuggers are on another. Also graphics you can run the image full screen with tool palettes etc on the other. If you have the deskspace to run 2 it rocks.

Seriously I don't run that way now but I used to have 1 monitor on 2 machines and a third hooked to both via a monitor switch. I have considered going back that way but the setup is a hassle.
