    EIGHT MONITORS on one PC!!!!!!!!

    Hi Folks.

    I notice in the latest PC Pilot magazine, that somebody has managed to run EIGHT outside view monitors on ONE PC!! There is a photo of the setup which looks amazing. There is no spec mentioned, and I can only assume that he is using four dual head cards - or a 3togo plus one on the second port, and two dual heads?
    I have mailed the magazine for more information, and if anyone is interested, I will put it on the forum

    Would be interesting to know about this setup. I thought he was using a multiple setup of Matrox TrippleHead 2 Go.

    Interesting........but triple head is in three's (ttl 9) and this assumes that he can run it on PCI cards? Unless he is configuring two 3togo's from one dual head?
    I have not heard from the magazine yet.

    I did a search on the internet "8 monitors/flight simulator" and it brought up a youtube video of an 8 monitor setup which looks impressive, is this the same one.

    Had a look through the internet, but could not find the item you mention? There was a device that offered multi monitors of the same image (splitter), but nothing like the PC Pilot write-up.

    Is there any way that you can direct me to it?

    8 Monitors - 1 Pc!

    Have just contacted a chap called "GOST1VIAN" on YouTube. He has managed eight view monitors on one PC using what looks like four dual heads.
    He uses an AMD7 series chipset, but I am waiting on his reply to my email for more technical information. I have seen his video, and the views are VERY smooth. Find YouTube and have a look?

    8 monitors - 1 PC

    Hello again.

    Spec herewith -
    AMD X2 CPU.
    AMD 790FX based Motherboard.
    Latest AMD dual head Graphics Cards - using PCIe slots.
    2gb Ram.

    Gigabyte, Asus and MSI all have Motherboards based on the AMD790FX chipset, with support for 4 graphics cards.

    If you can afford it, it might be a good alternative to "Wideview"? Avoids all that mucking about with extra PC's, extra programme discs and putting stuff on slew!

    Just a thought?
