Posted September 08, 2018 08:16:25A dual monitor setup is a great way to get your gaming PC to look good on multiple screens.
If you’ve got a pair of monitors, you can either run a single monitor on each of the screens or split them into a split-screen setup.
To do this, you’ll need a dual monitor stand that’s able to handle both monitors.
Here are the basics to make sure your setup is ready to go:1.
Find the ideal height for the setup.
I’ve found that if I’m using my PC as my primary monitor, it’s best to find a spot that’s tall enough to get both my primary and secondary monitors to work at the same time.
I find it easiest to use my laptop for the primary monitor and use my desktop for the secondary monitor.
I don’t have a preference about the height of the monitors, but if I have a problem with them touching, I’ll be happy to try and get them out of the way.2.
Find a suitable distance between the two monitors.
If the monitors are tall enough, you may be able to use a desk or table to support the monitor towers and provide a stable platform for them to sit.
Alternatively, you could use a shelf or wall that’s taller than the monitors to support them on top of each other.
I generally recommend a distance of about 15 feet or so.3.
Make sure your gaming desk and/or gaming setup is capable of supporting the display towers.
If your system isn’t capable of that, consider installing a second monitor that can support it.
I recommend using a monitor tower that’s at least 5 feet tall, but you could go higher if you want to be more flexible.4.
Measure the height between the monitors.
Measure from the edge of the display tower to the bottom of the desk or tabletop.
It’s best if you can measure this distance from your laptop monitor to the back of the laptop.5.
Measure where the monitor stands.
Measure in from the top of the monitor tower and make sure it’s a distance that’s within 1/4 inch of the top edge of your desktop or tabletop, and not too close to the edge.6.
Install the monitor stand.
You should be able a set of mounting screws to mount the monitors together.7.
Measure how tall the monitor sits.
Measure between the top and bottom edges of the screen.
If it’s too low, add more height.
If too high, add less height.8.
Install your gaming monitors.
Mount the monitors in this order:1) The left monitor2) The right monitor3) The bottom monitor8.
If all three of your monitors are on the same side, move one of them to the left and put the other one on the right.
This will give you two separate monitors with a single vertical screen.9.
Install an optional stand to support your monitors.
Install this if you’re using two separate screens, or if you only want one monitor on the side that you want.
If you’re a fan of using a stand, you might also want to consider adding one to the top or bottom of your desk or to the side of the table.
To install it, you will need to drill a hole that’s about 1 1/2 inches in from your desk.
Once you have the mounting screws and the mounting hardware, attach it to your monitor and then place it over the monitors and your monitor towers.
