Rotate Window Application 90 degrees

Hello.  I am starting a project.  I am planning on building a MAME machine, and I want to run these games with my monitor turned 90 degrees.  I know how to get the games running like this within MAME, but is it possible to have the initial Windows application to run the same way?  Version of windows has not been decided yet, so if it's easier in one or the other, then I can accommodate.  Hardware has not been picked yet either, so a video card that supports this may be another option.  (I can’t think of any myself that do support it)

Best Regards

PivotPro software does this, and some Windows video card configuration applications.

If you install an Nvidia graphics card you don't need any extra software.

One of the features is NVRotate:

Hope this helps.

That may just work out good.  The motherboard I was planning on using has an intigrated TNT2, so assuming I install 2000 or XP, that should work great.  (Older Pentium 3 - 450, so I think 2000 will be the better bet)

Thanks for your help.
