Default how many monitors do you use?

out of curiosity how many people here actually use more than 1 monitor and what do you them for?

myself I currently use 3 of varying size and quality. 1 17inch, 1 20inch (this is the beautiful ips one) and 1 22 inch for my main. Depending on what I'm doing I can have multiple webpages, multiple documents, music,video,voice,chat in the background while I'm gaming. Really I just love the versatility having 3 gives me.

and now. Now its your turn

My home pc has 1 x 23"ips, work has 2 x 22"

Ideally I'd like 3.
2 x 24" 1920x1200, 1 X 27" 2560x1440 ips/pls and a TV, (36" would be plenty)

I use 3 monitors at work, 2 23" and 1 25" Monitor.

At home when gaming I only use my 27" Monitor, however have a side 21.5" that I use to web browsing, IM people while gaming. I only ever turn on my third monitor when I'm doing school work as it's a lot easier to write up lab reports when I have all my data open to me at the same time, rather then switching between say excel, word, lab manual and matlab.

When I'm home, I use a 16:10 24'' IPS along with a 16:9 23'' PVA monitor. I use them for multitasking, either to play games on the main and watch something else on the side, to watch a video on the side while reading something on the main. Its something I recently discovered and I really enjoy it.
