The Moni-tuar project is alive (really alive: watch to the end)!

Tired of being limited by two monitors and a laptop, I – Matt Swider, TechRadar Managing Editor – show you how to build the ultimate workstation and answer this question: how many monitors are too many? Six. Six is the answer. But I went for it anyway.

In this battlestation build, I used a Mac Pro 2013 because it has six mini DisplayPort outs on one graphics card, with six mini DisplayPort to Display port cables running to six Dell U2417H monitors. These are superb Ultrasharp 24-inch Infinity Edge monitors are important because they take up less space than border-heavy 24-inch monitors due to having very little bezel – my co-workers to my left and right can’t complain about my workstation crossing into their desk space. My workflow remains unmatched at TechRadar.

Any questions? Leave them in the comments.
