Dual Monitor Question

Games, Gaming and Hardware
In the future, I'm thinking of having dual monitors. Would it be a good idea to get a 1920x1080 res monitor for the gaming monitor and to save some money and get a lower res monitor for web browsing?
If you just want a 2nd for web browsing i would still buy the highest resolution you can afford, but try and pick one that has a pivot adjustment on the stand. A 1680x1050 pivoted to 1050x1680 will let you view the entirety of most web pages without scrolling.
Get a nice monitor for you main screen and if you don't want to spent the same amount on a 2nd screen buy a refurbished 17" Dell UltraSharp 1280x1024 for around $50-$60

For your main screen I would recommend

$225
