i couldnt find a suitable place to put this, i hope i got the right folder...

do they exist?

i currently have 2 19"'s one which i do everything on and the other which has msn and widgets on so i can watch movies/ work etc and chat at the same time.

the problem is with both screens on their native settings of 1280x1024 my graphics cards struggle. especially if im playing games.

i want to get a 22" widescreen in the new year as my main screen and then a small one to sit beside it for system information and msn etc. it only needs to be 800x600 really.

i want to reduce the work load my gpu has to do and hence reduce its temps etc

any ideas or am i just mad?

im intending on getting a better graphics card. im using a 6600GT at the mo.

but when im playing games on my 22" at max settings, surely having a second monitor is going to have a large effect on the frame rate etc. i enjoy having two screens and dont want to give up the option of having a second one,but having one at 1280x1024 seems a bit excessive for what ill be using it for

Yes, they exist :) Starting from 7" widescreen TFTs (800x480 or so), then 8"-10" normal TFTs (800x600) and so on (search eBay for example). Many of these have touchcsreen option too - useful for car PCs or for HTPC cases or similar.

where have you seen them? im in the uk and have had no luck finding any that are a sensible price as of yet. (i tend to avoid ebay for electronics as i like to know i can return an item if its faulty with little hassle)

If you buy from someone who offers "Paypal Buyer Protection" on Ebay (it will say in the listing) if the item is faulty or not as described you can easily get a refund and return the item.

Do you stretch the gaming view over two screens? I doubt that? Then running two monitors doesn't impact game framerates, as long as only one is actually doing the game..
