Why not an LCD TV as a second monitor? That way you can get a bigger screen for your money as it doesn't have to be sharp enough to sit close to.

Yes... that's what I meant. No spanning.

My setup is not nearly as expensive as you think. The first screen is my new monitor, an LG 1970 bought at 400$ while the other my old 3 years old CRT, all running on an Nvidia 6600that cost me 200$ at the time. It's worth about 100$ now. All for all, I guess it is a good amount of money, but it wasn't bough all at the same time hence why I could afford it.

CRT == headaches

I have a spare CRT sitting around but I don't use it for dual screen because it gives me headaches. Ever since I got my LCD, I can never to back to a CRT.

It's exactly what i do, the CRT is there so that my main display is not clogged by all the property windows when I edit a map. You just don't know how much I like having that second display when I edit a map, I will never go back to single display for map editing, ever. Otherwise, the most it really does is allow me to read a bit between each map and see who is talking on any voice chat I use. It's off my slightly off my field of view, so it dosen't bother me when I don't need it. Anyways, when I don't need it I simply change my graphic profile to single display with a quick click on the Nvidia icon in my task bar.

If I were to DS for UEd, primary would be one whole level view window and the second screen would have the properties and 2-3 additional level windows

Properties would have a quarter of the secondary all to itself to boot

The static mesh / texture browser has more then 2/3 of my second screen. You need that kind of space if you want to view the biggest meshes properly. It's also useful to be able to view more textures at the same time. The property window has the other 1/3.

You seem to be thinking there's several property windows in Unreal Ed. There's actually only one property window and only one browser for actor / textures / static meshes etc. Everything is bundled in highly convenient packages. So you really have 2 main windows plus your level view which need dedicated areas. The only other tool I use enough to even consider giving a dedicated area is the texture panning. The rest dosen't need any screen space.

As far as having other level view windows on the second screen, I don't even see the use. I work with only 2 level view windows and it's more then enough. If you use them properly there should never be a need for more. 4 is overkill and gives you too little screen space in each window to work properly.

Here's a screen shot of the map I'm currently building. You can see my setup quite well.

What refresh rate would you use? I too would get headaches but only if I'd run it at 60Hz (for who knows what reason). 85+ Hz usually takes care of that.

refresh rates never made a big difference.

I can't bear to use a CRT with a refresh rate of 60 hz, but when it gets around 85 I usually can't see it skipping anymore.

Funny - i have the opposite reaction than most poeple. I PREFER CRTs because I actually get headaches from LCD screens. I can't use my laptop or some of the computers at my office for very long before the LCD screen starts giving me a headache. On the other hand, I almost never get a headache from my work/home CRTs which I believe are somewhere around 70-75Hz refresh rate.

Your fucked up

Anyway if i get a new computer i will keep this screen for a while because i can't aford to renew everything at once, after that i will get a nice 20inch monitor and use this 17 as a dual screen, that way vent on one screen + IM game on the other (just to see whos online) and the other for gaming, or in photoshop, LOTS of tools on one side and the canvas on the other, i want that so much
