If only I could get to display the form designer on one monitor and the code view on the other or one class within the same project on each monitor

You can, Trevor! You have to maximise VS across both screens - there are tools to save you dragging it out manually every time (NVidia drivers have one i think). Once you've done this, open your designer and code editor in separate tabs. Drag one tab over the content area, and you'll be presented with a context menu to split horizontally or vertically. Select vertical, then drag the separator to sit in betweeen your 2 screens - job done!

I also squeeze outlook, messenger, rss feeds, winamp and performance info onto my right screen using the fabulous[^].
