    purchase ultramon. best dual monitor software ever. even better then the nVidia one.

    to cheat the dual monitor wallpaper, create/download the wallpaper you want, and set it to tiled. :wiggle:

    I've never used Ultramon before. Looks cool. I'll have to check it out.

    I know you got your answer, but I wanted to understand what the OP's complaint is about. Is it that you can't have one large image across both monitors? I've never had any problems doing this with Matrox, whether I set it to center or tile.

    The tricky thing about dual monitors, is once you have two - a third one is only one monitor away, and a fourth, and so on......

    Hoping to setup an additional 2 samsung LCDs this year with my tax return, bringing the total to 4 :coold:

    You need another gfx card - SLI'd is best, but it can be done with pretty much any PCI vid card.
