I’m in the market for new monitors. My old ones will be donated to a home office setup for when my wife and I work from home.
I’m running a gtx1080 so I can push the pixels as it were. Looking for dual monitor setup, but I don’t span the games across both - I use the second for “productivity” type stuff (discord, web browser, etc) while playing the game. For example I’d have charts up on it while flying.
That being said, I occasionally watch Netflix on that secondary monitor while gaming as well, so sacrificing on picture quality isn’t a huge appeal.
Basically wondering people’s thoughts on setup, and what you currently run.
Current options I’m considering are:
- two identical monitors
- larger monitor with smaller monitor for productivity to the side
- larger monitor with smaller monitor for productivity on monitor arm mounted above main monitor
If going for route 1… 24" inch is kinda the max size limit I would think, as I can’t really fit 27s side by side. I’m flexible on the other 2 options.
I’m looking to spend less than $1k total CAD if possible. I mean the monitors I currently have are good enough. If I can’t find a setup I like, I’ll just buy two mediocre monitors and use those for the home office.
