Pros and Cons of a dual monitor setup
I've got a 24" Westinghouse LCD as my monitor for my desktop computer. Sometimes I would love to have a second one right next to it since I constantly flip in and out of multiple screens (Firefox x 5, multiple folders, photoshop, etc).
I'd love to purchase a second monitor but want to find out exactly what i'm getting into. I occasionally game on this PC and would like to know any potential drawbacks of running a dual monitor setup.
Basically, what happens when I play a game? Say, Live for Speed, Warcraft, GTA, etc? Will the game only show up on one monitor? I'd actually prefer it to be that way and NOT stretch over two monitors.
Also, is the second monitor a second virtual desktop? As in, will I be running TWO 1920x1200 areas on my computer or will it just stretch the images?
