Magnificant, Bernhard, combined with the driver update, it does exactly what I wanted to archive.

Thank you very much.

Me, too, please.

It looks like I'm lucky, since all I need is changing the graphic card and add a monitor to the dual head setups.. The systems in question have µATX boards, hence a single PCI-E 16 slot only..

For what it worth, the named graphics card is able to drive 3 monitors the way I wanted, and Google Earth doesn't crash anymore. According to KDE (3!) flux screeen saver, all screens are 3D accelerated, and the unlock dialog isn't drawn between the 2nd and 3rd screen ;-).

Cool stuff,
Pete
