    Number of Monitors: 3
    Screen Resolution(s): 1280x1024 + 1920x1080 + 1280x1024
    Screen Size(s): 19" + 21.5" + 19"

    Central 21.5" used for Chrome and all main & development work. Side 19" screens used for mail, Evernote, Facebook, and being generally unproductive. When I'm in development mode, all three screens are taken up, either with various Visual Studio panes and code windows for Windows development, or with Eclipse, the Android emulator and DDMS when developing for Android.

    Number of Monitors: 2 monitors plus a TV
    Screen Resolution(s): 1920x1080 & 1440x900
    Screen Size(s): 23" & 19"
    Number of graphics cards: 2, a GTX 570 powering the 1920x1080 monitor and the TV and a 7950GT powering the 1440x900 screen.

    19" to my left, 23" to my right and the TV far right. The TV only gets enabled when watching videos so the 570 will downclock to 2D speeds.

    I am running three on my main JAllen Labs workstation, a 27w", a 22w" and a 19"4:3. Nothing beats having multiple monitors. What a great investment.

    It's actually this one from the G3 design generation. Uses Mitsubishi's Diamondtron tech with an aperture grille.

    I have the two monitors on the desk and a TV just behind (on a long HDMI lead so it can sit on the desk too, if necessary)!

    I also find that non-matching monitors drives me insane...

    Use it mainly for gaming. The latest Nvidia surround drivers are causing issues for me though. The desktop defaults to the left screen instead of the middle which is doing my head in.

    I usually have two screens on my work computer and find it great. I currently only have a 27" (2560x1600), though. I've got a 27" on my home setup (again, 2560x1600), although it acts more like a TV than anything at the moment because I've got it set up at the end of the bed for now.
