Default a unique way of using a 22" widescreen LCD

okay
i was wondering if it is possible to do something like this
have any vid card (for S&G lets say a GeForce 8800Ultra)
have it run 2 monitors
1st be a 22" Wide screen (1680x1050) in that mode
2nd be a 22" Wide screen BUT!
we turn it on its side
so that it now a 1050x1680!
that way its taller than wide
and it would be a lot easier to view web sites with the vertical screen
and one for gaming
any ideas on if this is possible
or how to accomplish this task?
thanks

I know for a fact you can do rotation with the nvidia drivers, not sure about ati but i'm sure they have it too.

I think it is.

We have an o2 store here that uses a wide-screen LCD monitor mounted long ways to advertise the iPhone.

I see what your getting at and I think it's down to the software you have.

Yes you can. My monitor actually swivels vertically so you can do that :P

Just right click on your desktop --> Nvidia Control Panel --> Display --> Rotate Display

You can do it with ATI also. I have an ATI X700 Mobile and it has an icon on my taskbar that when I right click it has -> Rotations.
