I have a friend building me a custom computer at the moment but I'm not entirely sure what kind of screen setup would work best. I'm stuck between either a large screen or two smaller screens.
I was curious what other people use and which you would suggest.
I would also what the hell you call the stand that holds the two screens, I have looked in alot of electronic stores and never see them.

Cheers.

Why....would you ever want two screens for gaming?

Three screens for gaming, two if you want to do something else.

I like HDTV because of LCD brightness and contrast

My LG 32" has served me nearly five years

oh, and viewing angles

it is an IPS 1080p 120hz

I use a 27" 1080p 120 HZ monitor (for beautifully smooth FPS gameplay and the odd 3d vision game) and a 24" 1080p monitor for watching netflix, hardware monitoring software, browsing, etc

Did you know those settings for contrast and brightness don't actual change what their names imply for modern T.V.s? You should research it, it's funny.

I'm in love with my 2711x.

But, personally, I don't really notice a big enough difference between 1920x1080 and the higher resolutions (like 1440p) to warrant a better, more expensive display. And $250 for a 27" 1080p display is a really good value. Or, at least, it was last year when I bought it.

I wouldn't recommend EVER using multiple screens. All you're doing is spending a lot of extra money and sacrificing system resources to avoid pressing ALT+TAB or minimizing windows. My 27" (16:9 widescreen) is big enough, for example, that I can have two text documents open--one on either side--that can be fully displayed at around 160% the size of the paper they'd be printed on.
