Hi, I currently use a stock Dell 8400 with the Nvidia 6800 GTO card with two 17" LCD's. I would like to run a third display (probably 19" LCD) and would like to know the best (and easiest) way of doing this. I'm not a big gamer; mainly doing this for school (online) and work (on-call monitor/responding).

The only way (unless you want to drop $350+ on a Matrox Parhelia) would be to pick up a cheap PCI video card like a Radeon 7000 or GeForce MX 4000 and hook up the display to that. Before you do that, check your system BIOS to see if there's an option have the first video device be PCI (instead of onboard or AGP/PCI-Express).

Newegg has a rosewill Geforce 5200 128mb pci for 50 bucks. It has a vga and dvi connection and tv-out. That would be good too for a 4th monitor some day.
