:whistling: Hello,
I have a computer with a NVIDA GeForce4 Ti 4200 with AGP8X and I'm currently using two monitors. I have tried two different PCI video cards that I added to the system to run the 3rd monitor. I was told the new video card has to be the same as the existing one because a system can only operate on one video card driver. So back to CompUSA I went and was told not to add an additional video card but to use a y cable on the existing DB15. I fear that will only provide a duplicate image on the third monitor and not 3 independently running monitors. Does any one know how I make this work for me???

There is also a matrox adapter called triplehead2go.
