I currently have two monitors installed on my machine, and would like to attach a third, but I'm not sure if windows supports a third monitor.

Is there any way to attach three monitors to Windows 2003? (Each having DIFFERENT view).

I haven't tried yet, because I don't want to purchase the hardware before knowing that it's going to work.

Hardware is usually returnable.  Just watch for restocking fees.

*I* would go ahead and try because I don't see any reason it shouldn't work.  If it didn't I'd return the hardware, but I'd expect it to.

I just tried it with an old PCI card, and it fails to boot up.

But I'm not sure if this is because the card is bad, or it's incompatible with my other two cards, or incompatible with the machine.

I would like to hear from someone who's successfully tried this, before I making the purchase.

>>Hardware is usually returnable.
I'm very lazy about returnning things, so I rather avoid getting something I might not be able to use.

You can always get a dual or quad monitor card and replace the existing graphics card.

I didn't know they had quad Video cards.
