Default Dual monitors



kinda makes you want to do it doesnt it.

Both of the monitors are running 1024x768, giving me lots of room to put a lot of crap, as you can see. i would take pictures of the setup, but i a)have a really dirty desk and b)cant seem to find the camera.

anybody else having fun with dual monitors?

I used to, my only extra monitor now is a flat glass 17" with an ADC connector, and i'm too cheap to get the adapter for it. It'* also a CRT, so it'* hella big.

Would dwarf the Digital flat panel...

its kinda funny actually, my parents complain about the electric bill going up $20 when i run dual monitors. i find that hard to believe, but i bet somebody here will tend to side up with them on the matter <never fails >

I have ran dual quite a few times. Either as an extension or exactly the same picture. I connected 3 and 4 together as well at my previous job. Fun times

hey, why'* that guy want to kill you???


Yea... I had a nice setup for a bit at work... 4 Dell 1901FP monitors attached to a 4 head Appian Pheonix Radeon 9000 card.... Mmm... what a setup. My productivity went up a lot.

Now I just need to find another monitor...

Does your Nvidia have dual connectors? If so, hook the other up, right click on your desktop, click properties, click on the far right tab, and configure it.

I run two 20" flat panel LCD'* at work, and the monster tool I'm building will have 4 (I have the monitors already, just waiting for the industrial PC and video card to show up to configure it).

At times I run duals in conference rooms, with my laptop as one, and the projector as the other. I can have stuff running that nobody in the room is aware of, while giving a presentation or showcasing a new design.
