Thread: Big screen

    Re:Big screen

    Well if you have a Sony Vega or another trinitron type tube the TV out isnt too bad.... I have a 20" Vega and it can do tv-out at 1024x768 and if you up the font size a bit its not too bad...

    But still as for the answer to the topic, Dual 15" or 17"s!

    BTW, you dont watch a movie accross 2 screens, only 1

    I am actually tempted to go quad 17". Thats only about $800 if I buy 4 new ones. And I can get pretty good ones at that too. I was in BestBuy last week looking at LCD's, and noticed the price of CRT screens.... nice and cheap.

    That stuff could make my geeky dreams come true ;D
    I wonder if you'd see the text on the screens above a bit bad though

    Re:Big screen

    I might go for the 2 17" screens solution, but now for the GFX card trouble.

    These are my current specs:
    800MHz P3
    128MB RAM
    Geforce 2MX 32Mb AGP

    So, my options are to either buy a new PCI gfx card and put it in a free PCI slot, or I can buy a AGP card with dual VGA in.

    If I go for the PCI card, I guess I get another Geforce2MX for the PCI port.
    Would it be worth it to buy a Geforce4 w/ dual video ports? I mean would it be a bit too fast for my 800MHz comp, so I would waste a lot of performance because my comp can't handle the high speeds?
    Thoughts?

    My main PC is an Tbird 900. I got a major boost when upgrading my GF1 to GF2. I would imagine that there is still alot of room to go up still, with a GF3 or 4. Dont hold off on getting it if you want it. Linux plus a good piece of hardware that is supported in Linux == AWESOMENESS. Trust me.
