Default Re: Triple-Head Setup without Xinerama?

For two displays I think DH2G pretty much works like TH2G, except that the
DH2G only has a VGA input. If all your equipment is DVI, then DH2G may cause
some potential picture quality loss. This is why i opted for TH2G although
i only added two displays to the box.

If you have three LCDs with a resolution of 1280x1024 each, then with TH2G you
could also do SLI - SLI doesn't support twinview, so the above described
triple head variant wouldn't work. This is why i have a spare 8800GT laying
around, now.

At least for the X-Server under Linux, the TH2G simply looks like a monitor with high
resolution capabilities. The USB connection is only used as power supply and
to one-time reprogram the resolutions. So i think that technically the triple head setup
described above should also work for windows.
