I'm planning on getting a X850XT PE, and getting 2 lcd's. One will be 19" widescreen and another 17", will this look weird? Should I have any problems?

not as far as technical issues that I am aware of...

So, you can specify different resolutions on the 2 monitors? That's awesome. You can, right?

How can I use a CRT, it has the wrong plug, doesn't it?

Ah, I think this one comes with it. Ok. What about running both monitors at different resolutions, can I do that?

I do that every day at work. For both monitors you can use any supported resolution. Why do you care, both 17 LCDs and 19 LCDs typically have the same (1280x1024) resolution.

For that past year I have been running a Dell 2405FPW and a Hitachi 21" CRT with my current X1800XT and it works fine too...
