Check out the HIS Multi-View DVI, maybe the easiest way to set up multiple monitors for those who haven't switched to a 64bit OS. It supports up to 1600 x 1200 or 1680 x 1050 if you use widescreen monitors and you can send that signal to 6 different monitors if you are so inclined. Bjorn3D loved it for extending desktops and allowing huge amounts of space for windows and menus, it was not so impressive for gaming or for watching movies. In other words it may be great for using Photoshop, but not so good for slacking off.
"Many people, myself included, have often wished for an easier way to connect multiple
displays. Perhaps you don't have the money for multiple video cards. Or maybe your
laptop doesn't have a video-out. Or maybe you just want to connect six monitors.
That's a lot of maybe's, I know, but Hightech Information Systems (HIS for short) has
developed a solution to solve all of those problems.
Meet the HIS Multi-View. This particular model has a DVI-out and is small enough to
take anywhere. Being portable is a huge advantage in today's market with all the
hustle and bustle of life. If you have a need to connect multiple monitors to your
laptop, there is no better solution. It needs no external power supply and requires
only a USB cable to connect up to your PC. Simply install the software, plug it into
the DVI port or cable on your display (or VGA through use of the included adapter),
and plug the other end into the computer via the USB port. It really is that easy."
