Hi, I want to get two 17" monitors, I found a great deal. I have a Radeon 9600Pro, will I be able to hook 'em up? And can I use 1280x1024 on both monitors at the same time...How will my screen be split ? When I play a game, do I use both or one ? Someone please explain this whole concept to me please, send a pic if you have. Thanks.

ok yes you can run dual monitors if the card has 1vga and 1 dvi port you will need to get a dvi to vga dongle to connect the second crt when you game it will be on the primary monitor and your mouse will be locked in that monitor i have only played a few games that let me keep watching videos but i had them in a playlist lol asto the resalution you can run them however you want i have a triple monitor setup #1 17" 1024x768 #2 19" 1280x1024 #3 15" 1024x768 any more questions just post it here and i will try to help but i am unfamilier with the new ati cards and there setup mine is on a gf4 ti4200 and a gf2 mx200 pci

i have a 9800 pro and all u need like bishop said is the dongle and then to configure the setup, in display properties>settings>advanced.

 

Then decide wether u want windows to duplicate itself on the second monitor or stretch itself out across the 2.

is 1280x1024 max a good resolution for a 17" monitor ?

bishop how did you do that screen shot? I can't get mine to show all 3 displays at once :(

 

btw 3 is cool, 4 is just downright annoying to try to deal with (2 17" lcds, 2 19" lcds on a 9800pro 256 apg and a 9200pro 128 pci).
