New monitor is soooo big

My new 24" Samsung Syncmaster 2493HM monitor arrived yesterday and boy is it huge. Only just fits on my desk. Problem is I dont know what to do with all the extra real estate I've got now. Minesweeper looks awful small and lonely on the screen.

I went from a 15" to a 22" widescreen. What a difference it makes. I know that "I can see more" feeling. It's all good

I'm thinking of buying a 24", but not sure if I should wait for a touch one for Windows 7. How much was yours, and is it HD?

you will see that what you have now, will only get bigger and bigger.
I went from 20"-22" dual 22", then 24", then i went stupid, bought a 40" as a computer monitor, then 46", and if that wasn't big enough, I'm currently using a 52" 1080P.
Working on a 65"...lmao

heh - I don't upgrade monitors that often - If I could afford it I'd have a pair of 1080p monitors, but as it is I have a pair of 22" WSs...and I am loving them.

johnG, you have to grab the final screen to complete the setup.....

1 more 22'' would give you panoramic gaming!!! , i would love another 2x 20'' monitors for my setup..

but alas my lonely 260 would burn out in about 5mins

I have a setup with 6 monitors. Today my main monitor broke and I couldn't find a way to shut the PC down since I couldn't access the main desktop to get to the Start menu. Is there a way to change which monitor is the main monitor without having access to the current main monitor?
