lol, while that was loading, I was thinking "no way, did just post a completely black desktop?"
Then I scrolled over and saw the other side, really neat, makes me think of firefox
lol you know what it kinda does remind me of firefox.
lol I bet firefox tastes great
^^ that's awesome! Eyefinity??
sadly no, ;_;

On battery mode because in class and bored.
It was rather hard piecing together the wallpaper but I love the end result. Not sure why but just do.
Out of curiosity, could you use two 22" monitors in Dual Monitor setup? And if yes, what would be the maximum resolution?
you would add the first digits together before the "X"
so, mine, being 1920X1200, 3840x1200.
mine right now..
But, I need to grab another 1200 screen.. my 28" is 1200, my 24" is 1080
Hey man you should try out DisplayFusion. It lets you have a different wallpaper on each display or stretch a single wallpaper across, gives you a taskbar on the other screen, along with a lot of other cool features. The Pro version isn't that expensive, but you get a fair amount of stuff with the free version.
I've had that on my system when I first got duel monitors a few years back.. I don't care much for what it gives.. installed it yesterday because of your post and didn't care for it still.. I just never care for that..
But, thx's for the post.
Nice desktop SJ. And thanks...more options are always great. There's also UltraMon which is what I use.
Hey remember the old Windows 7 login background...well it's my login background for my current retail Windows 7 and also my desktop wallpaper right now .
Ya I know...only a 15" LCD for my secondary...Hopefully getting another 22" wide soon.
Damn, 22" + 15" must suck I don't think I could even bear having two 22" that are different models (I'm a perfectionist ).
Yet another question - What about Triple Monitor? Does it work the same way Dual Monitor does? (Does it extend your desktop etc) and what resolution would that bad boy be in?
lol. I have a 24" and a 19". The 19" is only used for icons, IM and monitoring programs tho.
yeah, triple would be the same way. quad would be different. If you line them up, it would be the same, but if you did the "square" then it would be the top two, for the first two numbers, then the numbers after the "X" would be the second numbers added.. so.. 1920x1200 would be.. 3840x2400.
Yeah, have this set up strange. 28' for all gaming and movies, then the other for, 24, Chat.
All right Sj, using display fusion.
Guess I was just crabby with it due to me being sick..
Once I move to London and actually get a job, I might actually get another one of the monitors I already have (real cheap but real good, look nice too). If you have two monitors then does that cause more stress on the system? And what about gaming? Do you game on one monitor or wut
Sorry for all the random questions
The only thing that two monitor does, is put more working stress on your graphic cards. I say, I have about a 5c increase in heat due to duel monitors. But, with these 5870's spaced out like they are, at 30% fan speed, I never see anything above 73-74c in temps when I'm gaming and both monitors are on. Now, if I had just one monitor on, probably be around 66-68c for temps.
When gaming, I use the second monitor to show me temps, my processes via Win7's Task Manager, and any conversations I have going at the time.
But you can't stretch the actual gaming window across two monitors?
Looking pretty slick man. Does the free version not set up a taskbar on the second display?
