Sentence didn't really make sense. So what is overkill?

It is also possible to do 3 full screen remote sessions all at the same time with my 3 monitor (or more if I run 2 windowed on the new 309 inch) configuration (the screenshot is of my old monitor)

I've often wondered why nobody called me out when I mention my triple screen system, now I know, most users here are savvy enough to know that not only is it possible, it's easily do-able also

I just tried Need for speed hot pursuit at native resolution. It's like your entire face is in the screen. It was very fun!

Now you know why you can never go back.

You're so much in the game, everything less is a framed disappointment.

This year I bought myself a present. It's been on my "wish list" for a very long time. It's a Dell 30 inch IPS monitor. To put the size of the monitor in perspective, each monitor to the left and right of the middle (30 inch) are 24 inch monitors. This monitor is pretty sweet I have yet to game on it, but I shall try that pretty soon! The graphics card that is driving that beast is a GeForce GTX 660Ti.

You know what I got for Christmas? Oh, it was a banner f**king year at the old Bender family. I got a carton of cigarettes. The old man grabbed me and said, "Hey, smoke up Johnny."

These were my Xmas presents to me;


And the best bit is I got them for a little less than the price shown.

Almost 2 months ago, I had an XBox 360 Slim vanilla and 5 titles in addition to some PC games (11 titles) .

Anyway, I started to love the idea of multimonitors. How I can I get the best of these humble parts
1- 24" LED Full HD TV Monitor.I use it for PC/XBox, but Not as TV
2- 20" Monitor: Slightly below HD res.
3- Ofcourse the HP Laptop HD 15.6, If can be used in the configuration?
