Dual Monitors

Postby Kerry Fullington » Sat, Aug 29 2009, 11:10AM

I have heard many of you tell how great this was and because Dell had 20" monitors on sale for $99 each with free shipping I finally jumped into the world of dual monitors. Put this on my list of things I should have done years ago. It is great to be able to open the cut list, my pricing spread sheet etc. on one monitor and still have one for nothing but custom layout.
Maybe next year I will get indoor plumbing.

Gary, with your Vid card all you need to do is plug it in, then right click on Desktop> Properties> Settings. From there you can set up the configuration and resolution that you want.

Thanks Rick.

Now all I have to do is get another monitor.

I just found out I might have a bad intake manifold gasket. Small amount of coolant in the oil :cry:

That sounds more like a blown head gasket or a crack in either the head or engine block. Either way, OUCH!!!

Will,

They are the S2009W 20". Just keep checking the link and eventually Dell will put them back on sale. It took me a little over a week to catch them at the $99. I have no complaints so far.
