I'll have to look into that.

My partner was given a bunch of extra computer stuff from her company recently. A couple of monitors but they are HDMI or some other HDMI looking connector. I'm not even sure if I have all the motherboard stuff installed or if I could do dual monitor with one VGA or one HDMI. Really need to look into what I might be able to do with what I have, but I usually end up just sucking it up and using my free time for music instead of fixing issues in my studio : )

It was a bit of a struggle going back to one monitor. I love FL Studio, but its a bit of a mess with all its windows.
yea just a router should work, you can connect them both using LAN. i have the same problem, my router is in the opposite corner of the house on a different floor

you can use both HDMI and VGA together if you have the hardware, thats exactly what my setup uses, one of each, but my graphics card has outputs for both.
you win over me though because you spend the time in your studio, i just cant seem to find the time these days :'( although i did have a good session today.

i sometimes use my laptop just to play using only one monitor and i hate it, always moving things out of the way to get to other things. even when im just using reason it gets too much. suppose we just spoil ourselves like little brats XD
