Default Re: 3 Monitors.....

Matrox is probably your best bet. They don't run cheap though.

Default Re: 3 Monitors.....

I have 3 monitors on my system and I just use 2 7600GTs. My previous desktop I had an fx5200 as the primary and 2 monitors on that, and then a PCI Matrox card for the last monitor. For more than 2 monitors, you will need more than 1 video card.

Thanks everyone for the help, its only the center screen that will be playing games so I may aswell get a PCI card. But which PCI cards can do Aero? The GeForce 6 should, right?

Yeah, the GeForce 6 would work fine with Aero.

Thanks, so all I nned to do is get a GeForce 6200 (I have found a 256MB version for 40), stick it in the PCI, and although my graphics cards will be different (8800GTS G92), they will both work to use 3 screens. Also will I be able to drag things onto the 3rd screen like I can with 2 screens on the same gfx card?
