Here's a brain dead question for the right person.

I have put in 2 Matrox cards under Win '98 (release version) downloaded the Matrox drivers, and multi-monitor is super cool for increased productitivy.

I can see where 3 or 4 17"'ers and a switch box (currently in the mix) would really increase a person's output.

So the question is to anyone who is using multi-monitor,

can I go with a odd number, like 3 monitors, or do I need to stay even, and go to four (and get a longer desktop!)
 ;-)

I plan to stay with the mystique 220 with 4 megs to stay chip for chip the same with the other cards.

No,  you can go with any number,  and put them anywhere you want.
It's been tested by microsoft with 9 monitors and everything works fine. (okay,  the guy who did it plays DOOM for a living and makes money at it.)

Cool. When I was on campus seeing this for the first time, the drivers we're being hand written, one by one, and was working with 4 monitors on OAK chipsets.

It is an incredible time saver to click on the URL in the mail, on monitor one, and have this site pop up in monitor two...

The orgional plan was to be able to open tech-net on one monitor and play 'follow the tech-net' on the other.... Now I can see where a third monitor would allow me to study, and follow email too....

Thanks for your help!
