    lets say I have a single LCD monitor but I want to
    buy a dual one...

    am I better to find a dual monitor that is moulded
    together or do I just buy 2 singles?

    then I assume I need to replace the chip so I can
    use both of them off 1 computer

    right?
     
  2. you buy two singles (never heard of two "moulded" together).

    www.newegg.com

    you don't replace the chip but you must buy a dual video card like

    www.matrox.com

    very easy to setup, i drive EIGHT monitors off one computer.

    is the matrox video card any better
    or worse than the appian hurricane card?

    thx
     
  5. Depending upon your current single card, you may be able to just buy a 2nd compatible single rather than a new dual head.
