Different Second LCD
I REALLY want to get a second 17" LCD for my home computer. I currently have a viewsonic that has performed flawlessly for almost a year. I want to spend under $200 but cant seem to find the same viewsonic. I was thinking maybe an Acer or just spend the extra $20 or so and get a samsung.
Anyways, will having two different LCD monitors create any issues that anyone might know about? I mean if i match the settings as close as possible, i am thinking i would be ok. Right?"Life moves pretty fast, if you dont stop to look around once in a while, you could miss it." -FB

What kind of issues are you referring to?
you dont have to match anything...
unless you can buy the same exact monitor, (highly unnadvised) there WILL be differences in the picture quality, colors, refresh rate brightness etc...
Few people span their desktop across both, they usually use them for seperate views...
paying that much for an older model wouldnt be smart... just get a decent value for your budget...

I dont know what kind of issues JPMiller. I am sure that my video card (x850XT) wont care that they are not the same manufacturer. I usually do stretch my desktop when working with dual monitors but i guess i dont have to do that.
I was just wondering if anyone had a similar setup and got headaches or anything. or just some odd issues."Life moves pretty fast, if you dont stop to look around once in a while, you could miss it." -FB

well when you're considering LCD's, I'd recommend the Hyundai L90D+, which is a true 8ms monitor with 16million colors...see the LCD sticky.
I have this monitor, 19" and I've been really happy with it. Newegg had it for pretty cheap when other monitors were over $300.
It accepts a DVI or VGA plug, and includes an adapter. I use the VGA plug because I use a KVM switch between two computers.

No, it won't cause any issues.
I am running 3 different makes and models of monitors on my computer (and have before) and never had an issue.

I'm using a 24" widescreen next to a 19" 4:3.... you can mix and match whatever you'd like.
