Dreaming of a multi-monitor Christmas?

If you have on your wish list a GPU capable of multiple monitor gaming, be it EyeFinity or nVIDIA Surround and a two or three pack of monitors, you might have forgotten one wee thing will detract from your joy. Lining up all those monitors on a desk and trying to keep them from moving or being of a slightly different height is not particularly easy; unless you pick up a multi-monitor stand. Barring those with the skills to weld one together themselves, you might want to consider shopping at Phoronix's favourite supplier where you can get a quad stand for under $100.
"If you find yourself picking up any extra monitors this holiday season, you may be in need of a monitor stand.
When it comes to monitor stands though, Ergotron is often regarded as the leading manufacturer of such LCD stands,
but their products come with a hefty price tag where a simple side-by-side LCD arm can cost over $300 USD. If you
do not want to spend several hundred dollars -- likely more than the cost of a monitor itself -- on a metal stand,
I have a better solution. For the past two months, I have been using LCD monitor from Tyke Supply. They are
wonderfully reliable, fully adjustable, and cost just a fraction of what it would cost if buying from Ergotron."
