    Right now I run a single 17" viewSonic flat screen and am thinking about picking up a second 17" monitor, I already have a two output video card, or should I get a 19" for the 2nd monitor?

    I don't play games or anything, just develop web sites and surf so don't realy need the larger monitor but you know how that goes. :crazy:

    I don't mean to piggyback, but why would you need two moniters.

    It is great for dev html etc. on one screen and view output on the other, also read emails on one while fix the problem in the email on the other screen without going back in forth on one screen.

    Get a 19" and use it as the primary. Try newegg.com. I think they had a few 19" widescreens for less monies.

    No one need a 19, but once you get one, you will wonder how you lived without it. I agree with RJ.
