I use 4
1 for browsing
1 for watching stuff
the other 2 I just got a bunch of stuff on like foobar, file explorer, some ssh sessions, irssi, steam etc
helps if u tile (even though windows is dogshit for tiling)
I used to run dual monitors. Then I needed a laptop for school and started using that more because it was better than my pc. Now I got a better pc again but stuck with using 1 monitor, my new pc also took way more room on my desk so (can't have it on the floor due to carpet) so I thought 1 monitor fit better.
It might be useful for watching content while playing non-intensive games. Also fun for watching streams and browsing on the other screen.
It's fun to have but not a necessary must. I'd rather buy a good monitor or have a few upgrades for my pc instead of having a 2nd/3rd monitor.
i have 2 but i mostly use 1. I only use 2 when i want to watch stream and do other stuff at the same time
yes absolutely worth it, monitors arent that expensive anyway
1000000000000000% worth, once you get 2 you'll want another.
If I use them separate does it count?
I mean I use one of monitors in wc when I wanking / watching some tv show while poop
Another one in bath usually singing "America got talent" and shit some sort of this
my main monitor is a 144hz one and my second just a 60hz which i don't need for gaming obv.
worth it 100%
I use 3, simply because I've upgraded my monitor twice and kept the others because it's useful. Usually I've got stuff like TeamSpeak or Discord open, sometimes a video aswell whilst I'm playing.
i use 2 ( one is TV, but it is on the desk ) and its so good, i am thinking about getting third one
I use 2, I play some casual game and Netflix or YT on the other. When I'm doing homework I have Word or something in one and the other with a browser. I love it
i use two, for doing things for the university its really nice to have two large screens. otherwise i just run twitch on it while im dming or playing arena.
Im using dual and its fucking awesome, cant imagine have only 1 now xD
life is so much more easier with 2 monitors
3 + a Tv screen in the back.
But honestly, I couldn't have mono screen what's so ever. Whatever I do, I'm always multitasking.
In your case it would be working app on main screen + working document on the side, gaming + tv show, website or whatever on the side, surfing on the web + youtube, tv show, twitch on the side, etc...
If you use alt tab you need a another screen. It's as simple as that.
rn i have hltv on one and major on one
I do and it's awesome. Playing and watching movies at the same time is the best part for me.
I only use one but I have a 65 inch tv about two meters from my computer desk which I cast on or play twitch when games are on. It's great to have an option for browsing/gaming and watching at the same time.
I got 2x 2560x1080, before that had 3 times 24", before that 2x 24" and even befote that I dont even remember the size, once you get two, you will never go back to one, you just can't if you are really used to it.
If you do something work related on PC like me its great, easier multitasking, but also for gaming its great, depending on what you play and windowed mode works properly, otherwise you still need to alt-tab.
Depends a lot on what you actually use your PC for, if you literally just play games, especially by yourself and you only focus on your game. There's hardly any reasons to dual-monitor.
But I think most people who have gotten dual-monitors are usually PC enthusiasts who enjoy just having more screenspace, it's very handy if you're multi-tasking or doing any type of project on your PC. That said, dual-monitor is a luxury and not a must, but since your 2nd monitor usually isn't used for anything important you could just get a cheap one.
Buying a second monitor was best investment I did
It's nice. One for games/internet/movie. Other for streams/discord/chat/spotify. Not necessary though
Its so underrated tbh, once you get second monitor you will feel so good, second monitor > expensive ass gaming gear except good mouse, coming back to 1 monitor after that feels so weird its actually hard to use PC xD feels so autistic.
2 monitors = must have
just try it, and u'll like it for sure
I run two. 144hz for gaming and a 60hz for discord, steam, twitch, chrome, and all that stuff
Mega worth it for watching porn. If the girl starts eating the dude's ass on the other screen you can just watch the other for a minute.
Also pretty good for all kinds of chats you might have open while playing a video game.
