    I know there are quite a few members who use more than one monitor. Do you guys use any software like UltraMon, DisplayFusion, etc to manage all that screen real estate?

    I have 2 Dell Ultrasharp 30" monitors on my main rig. I just use the inbuilt Windows 7 desktop management.

    In my X58 I have a HD5850 video card. I just plug both monitors into the HD5850. Win7 recognizes them from there and I manage from the control panel.

    HD6970 here: one monitor connected via DVI and the other via DisplayPort.
