2 Screens / 2 Monitors

I know some of you have 3 million monitors plugged in,
but little old me has the one lcd.

My Questions is it handy to have 2?

I have a 19" Square one at the moment.
But fancy a 22" i call them wide screen.

Will this be awkward different size monitors??
I have 2 Outputs and down the line i can add another Card
and link them. (Cross Fire) I think its called.

Anyways any advice about 2 monitors pros and cons thanks.

Well, it works nicely if you do more than one thing... But for some people, they just don't have the space...

I myself use AltDesk (by the same people who brought me Aston, my alternative windows shell (down with explorer!))... It makes it so I can have numerous items spread over numerous desktops...

So, for example, I have 4 desktops configured right now; I have:
1. FFox
2. Thunderbird
3. IRC Chat
4. Pidgin chat sessions

I hit ctrl and the left/right keys to scroll through them, or just click in the desktop area to switch. Everything notifies me of new activity so I can just click over when something is new.

I got myself a Samsung SM2232BW / 22" Widescreen LCD Monitor and its the best one I have had in years, no complaints and a good price as well in my eyes.

And back to your question; I would say its very handy to have two, have used two at work for years and its at well good home, especially if you work on webpages, coding or similar.
