I actually have three monitors on my desk. Well, four I guess if you count my comic-making laptop.
The two monitors on the left are for my work computer. The four pals on my desk help with getting my work done too. Overall, this setup gives me at least a 437% boost in my productivity.
*8 monitor setup*
