~55k points are now spent, and $750 worth of futureshop giftcards are on their way to my house, probably in the same box as Sklansky/Miller's TAP.
I'm probably blowing the lot on a monitor or two, but I've yet to decide exactly which models and what sizes. The bigger the better obv, but nowadays you can only get so much with $750.
As it stands right now I'm using a 32" Acer tv/monitor which is actually kind of 'standard' aside from it's great size. It's got bad (1280x760) resolution which means fewer tables.
I'd like to add two more widescreens on the side, 20" plus, but a) I'm not sure what I can afford and b) I'm not sure if/how I can hook up 3 monitors to my PC. The displays will be used strictly for poker - video games/tv will be used on my acer, so high-quality specs don't really matter to me much - resolution does.
I'm using a geforce 8800GTS 320mb video card which has two ports in the back. Two adapters came with them so I can fit vga and/or dvi. I'm not sure if I'll need either a whole new video card (**** that) or an additional one (**** that too), but I've heard of external adapters that allow you to use 3 monitors...
Anyways if anyone's got any advice on what monitors to buy and how to get 3 to work at one time it'd be incredibly helpful.
If you know of a better way for me to get my hands on some monitors via the points, I can always cancel the order, but it has to be done like within the next day or else it'll be too late...
