    Gonna try WidevieW

    Just came off the Newegg site. Man that hurts my wallet everytime I visit.

    I ordered another Powercolor HD2400 512MB dual head card. I liked the first one so much I figured I couldn't go wrong with a second.

    A 25' and a 12' cable for two monitors, and 2 sticks of 1GB each Corsair XMS2
    DDR2 800 memory for the second system. This should almost bring it up to par with the main FS computer. The secondary computer is only running a Celeron processor though while the main FS computer has a Core 2 Duo.

    I hope to have either two 3/4 forward views or one 3/4 view and one side view.

    Sure hope this works.

    Michael,
    A few years ago I tried a celeron as the second computer in a WideView setup. Main computer was a P4. The celeron would lag behind the P4 in turns. Not too noticeable in straight flight with minimal clouds. Hope you don't experience the same. I didn't try it in forward view and then a left view. You may be OK in the configuration. I did mine in forward and forward left views. But using two of the same video cards for the visual is the way to go. I would also use the same monitor if I had it too.
