Default Multi Tasking At It's Best;

<333




I've been doing it ALOT since I recently found out how to take advantage of the 8800's control panel and quick buttons on the title bar. I've assigned colums and rows in both monitors specially for each program i use and it opens there and i have some set to transparent, some to always be on top, etc. So now I have like, a crapload of stuff open at once.

COD4, a music library indexing over 80GB's of music, transfering movies to my ZEN, Browser open with 12 tabs open, AIM, Windows Live Messenger, uTorrent, and Ableton Live (big audio producing program). And I am still barely using any system process. Haha.


Anyways, soon I think I am going to get another 8800GTS 640 mb and the trade out my old 17 inch samsung and just go with QUAD 22in monitors


I am so excited, I leave in less than 12 hours

Looks good but your not going to be able to do quad monitors and run SLI though.

Kind of sucks to spend that much on a second card just to use 2 more monitors and not get the benifits of SLI.

What are you talking about?

I can't quad span? Only dual pan and then have 2 clones?

Why? You sure? o_O

ya, he's tellin the truth, in sli both cards act as one obviously, which i know you knew that, but because of that, the second card cant have output unless sli is disabled and you just run dual graphics cards, if you do that, i would suggest just buying a shitty pci graphics card to run the second dual monitor setup, thats personally what i would do...

When you are in SLI, you can only use 1 monitor port on the main graphics card I think. If you want quad montitors, I would just put in a cheaper second card for the other monitors.
