Well, clearly you were using it to communicate with certain people... so, why aren't you all getting together and merging to new software to continue along? I suppose you could open craigslist on there to find new roommates... worrying about your parents seeing porn sounds PAINFUL.

Videos? Music? Watching the would burn? If I can fill my six monitors, you can fill your three.
I actually NEVER had the need to use more than one monitor, for anything, and I have a spare 27" 1440p dell, a 1024p 19", ; I find it uncomfortable and my 40" 4k seems to suffice for everything, I don't monitor hardware while gaming too.

I usually have three things plus game up at once, I guess I'm just a busy dragon.

I guess a 2nd/3rd monitor is good for overlays, music playing when you can't add tunes to certain games, instant messaging/video chat/youtubing live/facebook live. Bear in mind GPUs clock rates do tend to run higher at desktop when more than 1 monitor is used, but if you don't care about that good for you.

My screen count is split between dGPU and iGPU, as per my spec list. Let's my 1080Ti downclock when not in use.

I need to keep the third one, because it's the only one suitable for my Windows 98 computer.

Everyone I want to talk to uses something else I already have, getting an alternative IM program would be of no use because I'd have nobody to talk to on it.
Open the messenger on two screens, talk to yourself.

Play a card game like Hearthstone on it that doesn't require much thinking, on top of playing your games on your main monitor, cause Hearthstone is slow paced and doesn't require thinking, that is what I do. I just got my 4K IPS HDR monitor hooked up today, it is gorgeous beyond belief.
