Studies have shown that dual monitors can increase productivity, but the jury’s still out on whether adding even more monitors means even more productivity. That aside, having multiple monitors (and I’m talking three, four, five, or even six) is just…awesome, and something you totally need in your life.
Right now, my main PC has a triple-monitor setup: my main 27-inch central monitor and my two 24-inch side monitors. I use my extra monitors for a number of things, such as comparing spreadsheets side-by-side, writing articles while also doing research, keeping tabs on my social media feeds, and, of course, watching the exchange charts on Poloniex.
A vertically-oriented monitor can save you a lot of scrolling trouble in long documents.

Here’s my full guide on setting up multiple multiple monitors—and all the factors you’ll need to take into account before you do so.
