Konrad, For the past 6 months I have used a Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 2060 (CRT) and an LG Flatron 563LE (LCD). The Mitsubishi is obviously my main monitor and I just use the cheap LCD for parking my PS palettes. Best thing I ever did. No problem with moving my eyes or head. In fact all health recommendations suggest you should move your head and body frequently to avoid 'fixation' problems with staring at a monitor. You don't need color management on the second monitor; most have sufficient controls to let you roughly match them to the calibrated main monitor. A Matrox 450 or 550 gives you the best dual control for 2D work, without the whizz-kid 3D stuff of gamers.
