ok.. well putting in a new gfx card into my machine when I get back form work. A PCI GF4 mx440. Bloody cheap really considering.
This is if they've actaully SENT me a PCI... we'll see. If not... damn.

The funny thing is this will now make my PCI card about 3 times faster than my AGP!
I'll prolly run my second monitor from my AGP - its a TV card too so that'll work nicely.

Anyone have any tips on setting up multi desktop systems? I've never had to do it before so any hints appriciated.

Photos will be posted after I've sorted this out :)

I don't think it is all that hard. My stepdad did it and he is by no means a computer genius.

Congrats on becoming a dual monitor man. ;-)

Can't wait to see the photos!

Re:
yeah, I made archiacangel and her boyfriend come over and he brought their big dog to help hand out candy. Paul works nights so Josh and I would have been here alone. It makes me nervous when the older "kids" (highschool aged and dressed as gangsta thugs) trick o' treat and know we are alone. Last night one kid said "G'damn, that is a big dog!" I just replied with, " I know".

Re:
the real gangsters aren't scary.. not the street kids anyhow. Its the guys that THEY report to..

They're just punks with guns. The guns are the scary bit.. not them.
