I was considering a dual monitor setup. My current monitor is a Hanns G HW191D 19" LCD 1440x900 75Hz and VGA/DVI input. I've read that DVI only goes up to 60Hz and there is no difference between DVI and VGA until you reach resolutions above 1080p. Is this true and does this have any negative consequences for games running Vsync at 75Hz (thought I haven't noticed any problems?)
Both monitors in the title are 19" 1440x900 LED monitors around the same price. The main differences I can find are:
the contrast ratios: 15m:1 Hanns 50m:1 Asus (will this make a huge difference in picture quality?)
the Hanns G has a DVI/VGA port and the Asus only has a VGA (will this affect longevity as VGA is phased out?)
the Asus can tilt a little but the Hanns G seems static from what I've read (but I wouldn't mind so long as the screens are at the same height as my monitor, which is why a forward tilt sounds good)
To anyone who owns these, what's the average build quality of these monitors? It seems the Asus is glossy while the Hanns is matted, which I prefer.
Most importantly, what's the vertical distance between the screen and the table so I can know if these screens will match up with mine?
Is there another monitor I should be considering?
Is it a good idea to mix LCD and LED monitors?
Should I consider swapping for a bigger monitor with 1080p qualities? Personally I liked the idea of dual screens with either the same or different programs maximised on them, but do a lot of problems come with having two monitors like aspect ratio and incompatible programs?
Would a multimonitor setup work better with 3 screens instead?
Also will my GPU be able to handle 2 monitors at max resolution? Nearly all games run smoothly at max settings on the resolution I'm working with, but I'm effectively doubling the work load aren't I?
