Hello everyone, this is my third post since I registered in 2008 - hate to rush into things, ya know.....
Both my wife and I are running two monitors each. Hers are wide screen and of the same size. SyncMaster 2243 (22" diag.)
My setup is a tad different in that my main monitor (directly in front of me) is a 19" diag, SyncMaster 915n, and my secondary monitor (to the right of the main monitor and angled towards me) is a 17" diag, SyncMaster 710n.
Both monitors are set at 32bit color, 1280x1024 resolution, and 75Hz refresh rate and set as extended displays. They are being driven by a Sapphire HD 3850 Graphics Card w/512 MB GDDR3 memory.
We are both using the Ultramon program which puts the taskbar at the bottom of both monitors. It is set so that only the programs running on a particular monitor are shown on its taskbar. We like Ultramon, by the way, because it puts an additional command button at the top of the open programs that you can click and automatically move it to the other browser. No more dragging from one monitor to the other.
Right now my monitors are position about an arms length from me and around 9.5 inches from the desktop to the bottom of the monitors. I expect to be making some changes that will lower the monitors several inches and allow me to pull them closer when desired.
