Im running on two 19 inch monitors and one 24 inch between it. I find it kind of irritating to me because it doesn't feel right for some reason. do you think it really matters? or you just go with it. Thanks!

It doesn't have to be. I run a 19" widescreen and a 19" 4:3 in dual monitor. It doesn't look as good and you sometimes have to resize windows when you move them between monitors. It also doesn't look the same, which could be why it doesn't feel right to you. It doesn't really bother me to much. I am considering getting new ones soon anyway.

You don't have to use two of the same size monitors, but it really helps in ceratin cases. For example, I'm dirt poor, so I'm using a 24-inch monitor with my latop set up next to it. My laptop sits much lower than the desktop monitor, so the mouse is a little jumpy when transferring between screens. Other then that, however, I love the dual monitor setup, even with the difference in size.
It really just matters what you like. If you like to have dual monitors, with no matter to the sizes, go for it. If you're a person who likes everything to be perfect and even, this may not be your ideal setup.

If you have lots and lots of money, you should buy all your screens at the same time, and all the same model. Otherwise your collection of screens will end up being a hodgepodge of what was available when you had money.
I'm a bit of an authority on the matter:
BeforeAfter 19", 20", 22", 22", 20", 19"24", 24", 24", 24", 24", 24"
Which would you rather have? :)

I would say that it does matter. It is personal preference. I think that your monitors should be CLOSE in size, aspect ratio, and resolution. I run a 19" wide and a 20" wide...they are obviously different in size when using them but not enough that it bothers me. 19-24 is a much bigger difference though.
