Maybe I'm just anal, but when I use multiple monitors they all need to be the same. Same size, mfg, etc. Looking at different screen sizes, resolution, screen colors drives me batty. I like it to look seamless.

Yeah different size is buggy ive seen it on uniform montiors and it looks better than any way ive ever done it with different sizes, although the way im thinking all the LCD tvs are widescreen and i think i can live with only the vertical dimensions matching.

I'm using 3 different monitors on 2 different video cards (ATi Radeon 9800XT, and a very old ATi Rage128 All-in-wonder PCI). I run two on the Radeon, and 1 on the rage. I have tonnes of desktop space, but no desk space :whistling:. I'm using different monitors too...

19" Acer Widescreen
18" Eizo Normal
17" GNR Normal

For some reason I can only play games in high FPS (on the Radeon) on the primary monitor though... Its good using multiple screens, and having ultramon software running too, I can customise my desktops to how I want.
