About playing games on two monitors, what about FFXI? Does anyone know if that game has dual monitor support?

Fast enough? Nothing is ever fast enough. How dare you utter the words, 'it's fast enough' on THIS website? We overclock because NOTHING is ever fast enough.Ever.

In situations where the screen is over crowded with tool bars such as in AUTOCAD, space is needed to do your graphics, your actual work. Here you place the second monitor as an extension and all the tool bars, help window, links, etc.Thus you have all the tools needed on one screen and lots of space in the other. This will make yor work easier and and faster. (no need to open-close all kinds of windows)

Matrox makes a triple head card. Around 375 bucks for the 128mb version. But it is 512GPU. Not really sure good it for gaming though.

Am I the only one that realizes how old this thread is?
These stats don't matter, suffice it to say I've spent too much money on my computer.

that's really good news, I've been playing jedi academy for weeks and I was using my seccond monitor just for monitoring my temperatures. I didn't know I could play on both of them. Ill give it a try tonight.

Is it easy to set up? Does it work with different resolutions on each monitor?
