    Can anyone recommend some good-fitting monitors for a triview setup? I want to do a widescreen center and smaller side monitors.

    I'll be using a GeForce 8800GTS.. can I split that card into 3 outputs or will i need another card?

    I basically want something like the bottom half of this but with some samsung/dell monitors.. the stand is nice though. I want the side ones to be as close to perfectly matched in height as possible.

    there's a ton of monitor arms out there, many designed for dual or triple screens. For the hardware to run it properly, any dual head card in the AGP or PCI-E slot and a standard PCI card to run the 3rd one.

    Depends on your card. MOST cards only support 2 outputs if that. I run a Triple setup at work but I use 1 windows box running 2 screens and 1 linux box running the other with synergy linking my mouse and keyboard to them
