What's your setup look like? When you're playing games on your computer do you use a TV or monitor? Do you use dual monitors? 

I have a curved SONY TV I use to play games on. Really awesome peripherals and graphics this way.

I'm more of a PC rather than a console gamer. Dual monitors just gives me to much to focus on so I tend to avoid. I have just the one and it's built into my Gaming Laptop. What's the resolution on your Sony?

Dual monitors for sure!!! You can have your game up on screen and look up stuff on the other screen, like strategies or guides, maybe even watch a YouTube video. For RuneScape, I have Netflix open on the other screen so often. Must have for me.

What resolution and brand is your monitor? What did you originally pay for the dual? I'm glad to hear it works out for you although on the otherhand, personally, I find there is to much to concentrate on at one time.

I have dual ASUS PB278Q monitors (27"). They're IPS panels, which is a screen type made for color accuracy and consistency. As a designer, this is very important to me. :) The added bonus is that games look amazing on them!

Dual monitors are definitely the way to go if you have space and can afford it. A friend of mine plays his Xbox One on a curved TV and it's quite nice, especially for the viewing angle.

They were pretty cheap, like $79 USD lol. They're just 21" Dells (1920x1080). When I moved to my apartment, I ordered some nicer ones on Amazon and they never arrived. Spoke with Amazon for months and they wouldn't give me my money back or any monitors. Sucks.

I have two 27" Acer monitors for my work computer at home though! They're great :D
