I wonder if it is worth it? My graphics card supports 1 HDMI, 1 DVI, so I think I can connect 2 screens to my computer, but what I am not sure about is will I be able to see a good amount of difference comparing to 2 VCD?. I barely play games, most of the times, I use it for watching downloaded movies or multi tasking ( reason why I need 2 monitors). One last thing to mention, 22" is TOO big for me, 17" is maximum and 15" is perfect =)

- My graphics card = NVIDIA GeForce 550
- My power supply = Thermal take 600 watts

Thanks in advance =)

Thanks for the update, your card and PSU are fine for what you require.
Just a pointer for the future a video card with 2GB of memory is better for 3 or more displays or a single display larger than 32".
