I currently have a computer connected to 2 monitors running WinXp. One is the main one and the other is just an extension that I can move windows to etc. With my ever growing need for even more space I now need 4 monitors and so I have a couple of questions:
1. OS: Does WinXp support 4 monitors at the same time? Do I need to upgrade to Win7?
2. GFX Card: How many cards should I buy? Or maybe just one card with 2 DVI outs splitting each of them? Whats better?
3. Stand: Right now the 2 monitors, they are side by side. I want no. 3 and 4 to be above the ones I have right now. How can I achieve that? Special stand? Does it even exist?
Really looking forward to your responses since I don't have a clue.
No problem. I think you can find a 4-screen eyefinity 5770, which should be one of the cheapest options. You might also need a displayport adaptor but overall it shouldn't cost you more than $150-$200 overall (card + adaptor) seeing as you already have the screens in place.
I do think you will need to upgrade to win 7 or vista too though.
