    I am a big multitask er and I am thinking about getting a 2nd 19" wide screen monitor. And I was wondering with my current specs how much of a drop in FPS would I get if I played with a 2nd monitor?

    well if you're playing with you're display spanned accross the two screens then i'd expect a significant fps drop. If you're looking for another monitor to keep information on like stats and help for quests or something then you'll be fine, but remember when you game with the monitor on if the game is full screen then you can't use the other screen it just displays whatevers on it while you game. i did it till i went sli and i've just stuck with my 22" ws lcd and i'm fine, if i need stats i put that on my g15 or the l.i.s.2 display on the front of my case.
