So what are you waiting for?

I know what you mean. Got a 22" from Dell at a ridiculously low price. The 19" just feels cramped.

Monitor envy-it's quite common. Fortunately, there is a cure. Go ahead-buy one.

Heh, yeah guys, I know the solution. Unfortunately, $400 with nowhere else to go has to come first! ;)
Come to think of it, my tax rebate will be close to that...

22,24,22 in a row, hanged, and I ain't going back :)

I've been running a pair of matched 19" pannels for a few years now, and thought life couldn't be sweeter.
A little over a week ago, in a fit of ill-advised, warranty-voiding tinkering (did you know it's possible to 'overclock' your monitor to reduce the grey to grey response time?), I turned one of the two monitors into an expensive paperweight.
I started shopping around for a replacement in the typical way of a web junkie - floating around manufacturer sites, reading stats, reading professional and user reviews... Research, research, research.
Then I made a mistake. I went to an overpriced retailer (where I won't buy the monitor, but they have a pile set up running and on display).
Now, instead of spending 400-500$ on a perfectly good 24" monitor, I'm gonna have to hold off for another week or two for some cheques to come in so I can drop just under a grand on the 27" panel I fell in love with at the store.

Yeah, I got lucky and went out on Black Friday and found a 22" for $200 :)
That 17" looks like a toy now.

I am running 24,24,21 [webmasterworld.com].
I am finding the vertical much better than the horz orientation (landscape).
The difference between 24 to 21 is moderate. I'd rather have two medium large screens than 1 huge screen.
Out at CES, we looked at a system that had 16 monitors attached.

I have installed my 24" wide screen yesterday. It was originally intended for one graphics oriented project only, but after one day of working I think it will permanently replace my current monitor. My new baby can rotate 90 degrees from landscape to portrait mode, which lets me view a large number of lines at once while programming. This gives a lot of oversight when writing complex algorithms.
Brett, I like your screen in the center. I thought I was the last dinosaur that preferred to work with white text on black in terminal emulation windows. Glad to see I am not the only one ;)

Question guys,how do you set up two monitors when you have integrated video? I picked up a pci card with dual output, but when I plug it in
the integrated video shuts off. I don't get any output of the pci card either.
I know I can go into my bios and turn off the integrated video, and the PCI should kick in, but what happens if the Pci card doesn't fire up? How do I get my default integrated video back up?

> the integrated video shuts off.
Ya, alot of motherboards are that way. It is an either internal or external pci thing. That is especially true with pci-express cards.
> white text on black in terminal emulation windows.
hehe - there just happened to be a "Readme.txt" on the screen there. I run most of my programming with jazzy syntax highlighting on. But ya - it's still a black background. I couldn't imaging programming all day with a white background - my eyes would hurt too bad at the end of the day.
