    I just pulled a gun pic off my phone for a different thread, and saw this one. I figured i might be able to show off a little bit in an area i do know something about (since all i can seem to do usually is ask questions and beg for help on gun info).

    Anyway this is how i roll when i am on the forum. All six screens are hooked to one computer and you can move any window to any screen. It increases you production TONS when you're a software engineer - or doing anything that requires you to have more than one window open at a time.

    Come on boys feed my ego a bit... It's all i have.:D

    BTW - Ed is my brother - he has been wanting a multi-monitor setup, so i sent him a pic when i got mine up and running.

    You can never have too much screen real estate!

    I've got a question or two about your set-up. I'll send you a PM.

    Nice! But my feeble mind can barely keep up with the two monitors on my desk!

    Nice, but I agree...I'm not a multi-tasker.

    I thought Windows 7 was supposed to eliminate the need for many screens *snicker*.

    But if they "fix" an issue, what would they promise to have on windows 8?

    How are you running 6 screens off one video card? You got a splitter or what? I know you can use a KVM to run multipul computers on one screen and keyboard.

    What video card are you running BTW?

    It is actually running three video cards and all three of them have 2 monitor outputs. When i sold my business, i just took apart several of the computers i had left over and put all that i could into this one. You'll appreciate this - the whole thing is running off an old dell dimension 9100. I will PM you the specs so the guys in here dont pick on us when we "talk our talk".

    You need to think this through before you go and do it. If you're married, it is harder to close out 6 screens before she catches you!!!

    But on the plus side... your draw and fire time gets MUCH better and more accurate. I can now fire 6 rounds dead center in under 2 seconds (point and click...point and click...point and click...) :D.

    (BTW - I honestly try my best to stay away from the porn sites. I am not perfect... like any man. But I felt like i should add that part, it is just who i am. Go ahead and make fun of me, i am used to it, and PROUD of it :cool:!!!

    Let me know if you (or anyone) wants the technical info on exactly what i have going on. It uses some older technology i had laying around, so it is cheaper than you think (minus the cost of monitors) to get the video cards in and up.
