I only use 1 monitor for now, but soon im gona buy a 4 k gaming monitor.
Then i want a secondary monitor vertical. I have a Samsung 27" SA650 syncmaster and i tryed
to turn it vertical but everything looked blurry and my eyes started to hurt from reading any text.
When it turns normal then there is no problems.

I know my monitor is old and only 60 hz but what kind of monitors do people use for verticals today ?
Im sure they dont use a expensive gaming monitor for that purpose but it looks like a standart one.

You have to adjust ClearType to get the text to look good on a vertical monitor.

The Samsung SyncMaster usually does work well as a vertical monitor, but you have to be aware of the BGR/RGB subpixel issue with ClearType. That's why it affects how reading text feels for you.

Also MVA panels don't always have great vertical viewing angles. I had a MVA years ago and it was not good vertically, I eventually switched to an IPS 1920x1200 panel that was perfect. I did run ClearType tuner as suggested above, that does help.

Yes, if by "adjust" you mean "turn it off". Cleartype doesn't support portrait orientation. Your options are grayscale AA or no AA.
