Adding a second monitor can make a big difference. Depending on what you do with your PC, you can potentially save significant time looking at multiple documents or webpages simultaneously. If your computer time is limited to looking at one webpage or document at a time, this is not for you.
I find that the time savings seeing everything at the same time; vs, constantly minimizing and maximizing windows that you are regularly switching between, is invaluable. Keep in mind that each time you bring up a new windows, you have to find where you left off each time costing you time.
If you’re thinking of just getting one, even larger monitor, the degree of increased efficiency is not the same. While it may help, one large monitor is rarely a viable alternative to having dual monitors.
