Haha yeah I wouldn't even use that laptop screen.

Yeah, I could configure it that way, but I like more real estate...  one of the software packages we use in particular, has about 5 windows per instance, so it's very annoying to have to minimize/maximize constantly.

As much as I love two monitors I cant imagine the need for a third on anything but a gaming rig.

DisplayFusion for your random window needs.  Picked up a legit version during the Steam sale for about 8 bucks.  YW.

 

 

 

 

And mismatched monitors make my OCD go nuts.

Probably could, but apparently Dell didn't really make allowance for that with this configuration.  The K5000M video card supports 4, but the way the connectors are arranged on the system it won't actually work.

 

I did some research on this because to get the two monitors to work, I had to buy a DVI to DisplayPort adapter.

 

Plus I don't have room on my desk...

Just buy some monitor arms to mount lol.

 

You can get USB adapters that let you add more monitors actually.

I didn't think so either until I started using three on my main workstation and now I can't live without them...

These aren't too bad, I've got them really close now that I played with the settings a bit.

 

 

 

This is what Zaximus wants...

I have two at work but could use three.  I monitor UC4 application/sql jobs all day on one.  Then monitor VM's on another window/back up VM's.  Then another for Huddle browsing lol.
