What is the best position for duel monitors?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Not sure if this is best place to post as wasn’t sure what catagory.

so I have Had my gaming and stream setup for a while now but been moving it around and upgrading hardware. I have a duel monitor setup which is currently central on the desk, now is it best to keep it central? or is it best to move it across slightly so it’s more left?

I have one of those PC wall mounts you might see at a doctors office(at least in the US), I use that for Discord while gaming, and I raise it to the highest setting along with my standing/sitting table if I feel like standing up. I put it (wall mount) to the right or on top of my gaming monitor because I'm a righty.

Not sure if we have got them probably have on amazon, sounds like a decent setup idea to be fair. Was thinking about making my main monitor in front then ether the stream to the right or left but pc is on desk on the right.

Personally, I'd have one of the two monitors directly in front of you (as main monitor) if not slightly to one side and then the other monitor can be placed directly by it, if you're constantly looking at your main monitor in an odd fashion/angle then you could get neck pain and so on. 


If I don't seem to laugh very often, it will be because I sold my soul for more PC parts.
