I currently have a Dell Optiplex 980 running Windows 7. Its motherboard only allows 2 monitors to be connected (they run off the same card). I can run a third via USB-to-VGA adapter if I must.
Apparently, unlike almost everyone else I know, I like to run my monitors at lower resolution, and I sit further back from the screen than most. So I have a 26" LCD TV running at 1360 X 768 (native resolution), and an old Dell monitor running 1024 X 768.
But I am finally at the point where I need something a little higher rez. I've been looking at 32" LCD TVs/monitors which run 1920X1020 or thereabouts.
I understand Windows can scale text, but that doesn't take care of menus, icons, and so on--those don't scale.
So I need some direction about what do buy/what kind of setup to have that will, essentially, make stuff bigger. If I had my way, I'd run a 32" monitor with resolution somewhere around 1600 X 1200, but I never find those, everything is high-rez or labeled "HD".
