    Both Thunder and the new P4 run dual 17" monitors though I'm lookin' at a pair of black 19" ones now for the new AMD setup. ;)

    Why the test as I thought they stopped the requirement that ya must take drugs for those jobs? :D

    So are you basically looking for a videocard that has DVI and CRT ports? They're getting pretty common now. What's even better is to have 2 systems running dual monitor setup, to 2 monitors with builting line switches! We got one at work here, set up like that. Pretty cool. Course the cards are DVI/DVI

    At home I got Dual Viewsonic E90fb's 19"ers.. works awesome with the Leadtek Ti4600. (MyVivo)

    Nah mate,
    I know the cards which can run them, i just want an in-depth response upon how to run two different destktops, ie software involved.

    Because i want one to be my regular desktop, and the other to be interchangeable between

    My FTP server, mIRC, icq etc

    OR

    Tv tuner :D

    I'm not real clear on what it is that you want to do but this page may help somewhat:

    http://www.digit-life.com/articles2/...4-tv-out.html.

    I realize that it is primarily in relation to FG4 cards but the principle should be the same.

    Hehe sorry for being soo unclear. I guess im not writing what I am thinking :P

    I would like on my first monitor

    The original desktop as is right now.

    On the second monitor I would like to run my ftp's mirc chan msn icq etc.

    ORRRRRRR

    Another idea for the second monitor would be the tv.

    I guess the tv thing is easy, i just want to know where I can purchase the TV unit in Sydney, Australia.

    I would also like to know if there is any software needed to run the second desktop. Whether it makes it run better etc.

    I am waiting on the delivery of my second Sony CRT (Fri) so I will have dual monitors.
    The Sonys have a selector switch on the control bar to select between two inputs, and my #1 computer with an ATI 9700pro has dual out and includes software for dual monitor use.
    (things like the mouse pointer can just gulide from one monitor to the other, etc) Then I also want to use the second monitor to check on my fractal generation computer!
    (I AM hoping that I can switch inputs on the SONY hot, in dual monitor mode, and not have any problems!) :?:
