I don't need it but there are times where it would help productivity. Usually I have Chrome maximized on 1 monitor and chat, folders, widgets and stuff on the other monitor. I've been converting some videos lately and having a 3rd would help. Mostly this is for proper integration of SoftTH in games. I have used 3 monitors for that but it was far from ideal, having a 15" rotated so it's 768x1024 and then using a less than native resolution on the other 2 monitors, it just didn't look good and was too much of a hassle. Now with 3 all the same physical size as well as all the same resolution will overcome some of the challenges.

My desk is an awesome blank canvas; it's made out of particleboard. In it's stock form particleboard furniture sucks. But it can do great things when you add woodglue, misc bits of wood and deck screws. Mine easily supports all this weight but when I moved out here, it sat in storage with a bunch of stuff on it. Long story short, it sagged ever so slightly. To combat this, I've added 1-2 layers of foam tape on the underside of my monitors to make them level again. With some inginunity and basic materials, you can turn a particleboard desk into something that suits your needs and has more function than any pre-built desk. Wait till I post final pictures of my setup including snapshots of my epic wire management under the desk :P

Few questions..
What kind of headphones and how much were they?
How was that apple?  I like the green/yellow ones more..
What's that box on the left of the desk?  It looks like a recorder..
You got a ps3?  I didn't know that.. (that is a dual shock three right?)

cotton, lol. Um...

- Headphones are recabled Beyerdynamic DT770/80. I think I paid $150-ish.
- The apple was pretty damn good, I think it was the best one of the batch I picked up. Crisp and juicy.
- The box would be a Maverick Audio TubeMagic D1 DAC/Amp unit. My "review".
- I do not have a PS3. Without getting into a heated debate, I think consoles are a waste of money. That is a PS2 controller from my old PS2 that I had a while back. It is connected to my computer via an adapter that I had to rewire not long ago. Here's a picture: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/464376/headshot/DSC07084.JPG IMO, it's hard to beat. I've seen and used various PC gamepads and it's tough to beat a Sony Dualshock.

Those controllers are full of win.  Force feedback doesn't work in PC games, does it?

I know force feedback, in theory, could work. But, you need the driver for it and I have no idea where it is. I guess I could look into it but since the adapter is USB-powered, 5v isn't really adequate to power force feedback. I remember testing the driver that came with the adapter when I bought it with XP and when the motors kicked in, the red analog light dimmed. Right now, I just use a generic Microsoft joystick driver.

I split the topic, if you're interested we can continue there. It's in the audio section.

I've used two monitors.  Now I'm using one.  I do like two way more than one, but it takes up more room than I have. :\

Yea, using CRT's and different-sized monitors sucks.

The first one I used was an old shitty monitor that wasn't even close to the same size as my laptops monitor.  So I hooked up my new monitor and they are just about the same size.  It was great.  But same thing..  Not enough room for the space I have.. :|
