Hello. So I want to do a Dual Monitor set-up and I have been having trouble deciding on how to go about this. I did think of getting two of these ASUS VG248QE Black 24" 144Hz 1ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD 3D Monitor Height&pivot adjustable 350 cd/m2 80,000,000:1 Built-in Speakers.

I want to have 1 for gaming and 1 for browsing while I game.

Would getting two of the above be a good choice or would it be better to get one 144Hz & one 60Hz (for browsing). Any other ideas for Monitors would be good thanks.

I have never had more than a 60Hz Monitor and so would 120Hz make a difference to Recording/Editing/Rendering?

One last thing is my GPU is a single EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SC w/ ACX

Any help would be really appreciated. Thank You

The monitor is top of the line.

1 would defintitley be great for gaming but 2 is not necessary unless you pland to upgrade to Nvidia 3D vision in the near future so you could play on 3 monitors.

But should you be 100% sure you won't get a third one, then take a less expensive one as secondary as it makes no sense to have a high end monitor on their without it being used other then for browsing :)

Glad to hear it is a quality Monitor. I won't be doing 3 Monitors anytime in the future I think. So Should I go for a 60Hz for the secondary browsing Monitor?

Btw thank you for helping me with my problem. Really appreciate it =)

Yea 60hz would do just fine :)  for example Asus VS248H ;)
