Your job has just become more tolerable

MSI Dragon Eye allows you to watch a YouTube video or Twitch Stream while playing a game simultaneously. Simply add a link or stream to the Dragon Eye application and select the size, position, volume and transparency and start gaming. With a few hotkeys you can start/pause your video or set the volume.

So in this case... they are no longer AFK, by definition.

Well technically, you aren't AFK when you are watching Youtube in your browser with EVE minimized

Just food for thought.

some people prefer big 4k monitors that cost as much as 10 of your puny 1080p screens.

Keyboards with multimedia functionality and multiple monitor setups have been around for ages.

Lol

And I will still take 10 full HD monitors over 1 4k one.

The difference is big, but not huge enough to warrent the loss of multiple monitors.

Fascinating, someone has replicated what I'm doing with my PS3 on my TV when playing EVE.

I wont argue with someone that fails to grasp what having a bigger resolution actually means. 4k = 4x1080p monitors with no bezels. Superior in every possible way.

Nice software but... it only works with MSI ready package computers.

Imagine watching Family Guy reruns AND your ship at the same time!

Dunno why people try to multitask mining and watching stuff.

Its too mentally exhausting to keep doing this all day long.

I say, leave it to the bots, no need to waste precious grey matter on this soul crushing job.

Some people prefer 10 'puny' screens to one massive one that takes up a whole wall and still only counts as one display.

2x 1920x1080 is not enough though.
However, I have run out of physical space and I will need wall mounts for more. Cry

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

So, for the same price, you can have "4 monitors" or 10...hard choice.

And there are very nice full HD monitors here with almost no bezels.
Let alone that using multiple monitors most of the time don't matter if there is a slight bezel between them.

Ya, I like my 3 1920x1200 monitors....especially when I enable super sampling or DSR
costs much less than buying 3 4k monitors

I play eve on a 120 inch theatre screen with a 3000 watt surround sound stereo. Its like im really in the ship!. When i get podded i curl up in the fetal position and hold my breath till i respawn ( really hope for no lag at this point). Its amazing.

Ok im kidding, Im either playing eve or not playing eve. If what im doing is so boring i need to afk to do it i just dont do it lol.
