How to run 5 Screens?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So i know this sounds stupid but i have 2 19 inch Samsung LCD's lying around

This is what i was thinking... i currently have a 20-30-20 setup, now what i wanted to do was add the two 19's to the top of the 30 angled down at me. Mounting them to the wall is what i was thinking. Got that covered.

Now as my 5970 is running the 20-30-20 setup

I need a different VGA to run the 2 samsung screens... Obviously looking for the cheapest VGA available..

I have seen some PCI, and Some PCI-E that are around 40 dollars, by both ati and Nvidia. Basically i'm wondering is it possible to run both cards without them interfering with each other, will there be a driver issue?

Also should i go with ati or nvidia?

If you are looking at more monitors I suggest you get another ATI card.

Unless you are using W7 drivers will conflict.
