    I have 2 screens at work and now I think about it I could use 3. If I was forced to go back to one I couldn't cope!

    I wouldn't have a problem with it. If you can afford the bills and live comfortably then why not. As long as there's no issue when you want something

    Yeah. She explained how three screens worked to me and it would be great not having to minimize things constantly!

    Maybe you could ask your boss for a third?

    If you don't need the money for anything else that is essential (paying off debt, home reno, etc), then I think a computer is a reasonable thing to spend the money on. So long as it doesn't take all of your savings - best to have a safety net!

    I would LOVE to have 3 screens - I can't function on only 1! I have 2 at work and iften end up having to print things out so that I can work effectively with only 2 screens.

    DP says that most pc's can easily handle dual screens but if you want three you sometimes have to get a better graphics card - especially if you'll be using it for the latest games.

    3 definitely seems the way to go...

    Wow DS sounds very smart. Do you just order the parts and put it all together? Sounds confusing.

    Wow I didn't realise how many people had dual screens 😳😂

    My husband does and it does my head in. I can't concentrate. I get lost.

    Yes I'm blonde 😝

    But yes you should get it for her 😁

    My husband does this too. I'm not sure where you are but he built his computer for $1200 and saved thousbNds it's a gaming computer. And then it clicks into TV as a big hard drive (again I have no idea) lol
