    Default I love 2 Monitors!

    My new PC uses a 27" 1920 x 1080p monitor as the main one, and a 23" 1920 x 1080p as a second one. This is so much fun and efficient!

    I still need to pick up one more monitor for this to be a reality for me, and would love to see if I can find a deal on a Mount for all 4. Not very many that actually hold 3x 22" monitors, and I'd love to upgrade them all to 24"+ at some point. But the next time I upgrade monitors, there will be at least one of these: LCD2490WUXI2-BK

    you can make it happen
    that is easly done using strut, available at any homedepo/lowes
    SUPER-STRUT Channel, Half Slot, 10ft - Strut Channel - 5YB80|B1400HS 10 PG - Grainger Industrial Supply

    a few screws, brackets, and "incorperating" what ever your currently using for mounting

    and you can have it any way you want
    even hanging from your celing
    swing from the wall, how ever your imagination wants it , you can do it

    there are 50 to a hundred ideas here for DIY bracket builds
    http://www.instructables.com/pages/s...oniter+bracket


    my personal goal is using a design where i am layed back in a recliner with a split keyboard, 4 screens, and it's all on a hinge so i can swing it out of the way to get up
