with some more or less intelligent image processing algorithms (however,
I doubt it). Alternatively, you could add a G-Sync framelock module to one
of the Quadro cards in order to sync to the other one. In either case, you would
still sit there with Xinerama :-)

Anyway, if I could easily afford a 70K+ projector then I would definitly
spend this "little" more money for a QPlex, but YMMV *g*

jesmith, would you be able to record (even if SD) video of this project and post it on youtube? It sounds very interesting. By video I mean from a hand-held camcorder, not a screen capture from the projector itself.
We don't run the desktop in our apps. We run a full-screen OpenGL UI. (This will be rear-projected onto a 100" touch screeen.) So basically, it will look like those fancy CNN touch displays.

We'll all know it's linux under the covers, but it won't be obvious from the appearance.
