    So could two video cards that both support dual monitors be used all at once? 4 monitors?

    So long as one is PCI and there are no driver/IRQ conflicts then there's no reason that it shouldn't work. ;)

    Wow,
    im speachless. Just when i think that my idea to hook up 3 monitors is too big, Wiggo gives me some thing to think about.

    Thats a lot of monitors, i'd hate to see the power bill.
    BTW is that yours Wiggo???

    yeah, i saw that harcore simulation action as well.

    I heard in Battlefield 1942 if you use multiple monitors, there are windows in the side of the tanks.

    Could be a rumour, though.
