    Already got one ;)

    Winamp visualisations look sweet througt it with MMB sitting on the top displaying Temp etc :D

    The only problem with it is you have to set it up as a second monitor and the version of MMB im using dosnt save which monitor it should be on so I have to drag it there every time I boot Windows and winamp does the same thing...

    Just got to make some sort of stand for it now...

    Looks cool, but I've just invested £60 (inc graphics card) on a 10" monitor with an 8meg SIS card.... it does 800x600, and I use it for much the same as what you would use that LCD for... Although everything stays on there when I reboot windows :D

    If I hadn't have got this monitor tho, I would seriously consider one of them ;)

    To the best of my knowledge yes .......... the display properties dialogue box should allow you to customise each monitor seperatly. Why not just plug it in and give it a go anyway !?!

    try http://www.realtimesoft.com/multimon/ for some good multi monitor info.

    Yeh. Here at Mr. Jefferson's Resort (University of Virginia for the unenlightened ;--) the School of Commerce has these schweeeeeeet triple-head LCD monitor computers for all the future stock brokers. One of my roommates brought me down there - they needed a mop for the drool :--)

    I used to run 3-head at work. I had 3 cheapass S3 cards, and 3 17" MAG monitors. Effective desktop 3840x1024. It was sweet to have simultaneous full-screen windows for Photoshop, Ultraedit and a browser.

    No, they were all PCI. Cheap $30 cards, 4MB S3 Virge as I recall.

    Windoze lets you mingle AGP and PCI cards into one desktop, but you're limited to the AGP card being the primary (not a bad thing, just something to remember).

    It sure impressed the people who came by my cube to visit. My standard response was "I have three times as much work to do...."
