    I was thinking about it, but never got around to it, I was going to try it with a quadro card so I could get video out + two monitors, reading about it I think you are limited to the max output of a single port on a video card, so like if the max out of the video card was 1650wide thats the resolution that you would span 2 monitors with, could be wrong though???

      I am using NX76t256D-RH Graphic card wich has dual dvi output, it has max screen resolution at 2048 x 1536, i use 2 lcd monitor on it.
      I would like to ad the third monitor to that system.
      So if i use one output from the graphic card to one monitor and the second out put from the card to the matrox dualhead and add two monitores to the dualhead, will it work ? can i get to use 3 monitor on my system ? It would be just grate.

        probably wont help you

        i've only worked with the analogue version of that matrox thingie, should be the same 4 dvi version.
        what the other guy said is right, dual head2go splits original signal into two, so if your graphics card outputs 2480xsthing pixels you'll get 2 times 1024xsthing max. so it looks pretty bleak for your tripple 22" lcd screen setup

          That seams right.
          Any other solution that anyone knows that will giv me the third or 4rth monitor to same system, other then using two graphic cards.

            no way

            naw, otherwise it'd be too easy and everybody would have 8 screens ;) you definitely need a new graphics card for that. therese a couple of odderings from matrox and ati. but dont expect 3d performance or a less then hefty price tag. if you're fine with an analogue port and 4:3 aspect ratio you could just an a legacy pci graphics card for about 2 bucks

              Blast1 is correct, the DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go appear to be one single monitor to the graphics adapter it's connected to. Thus you are limited to whatever the graphics adapter supports resolution/color-wise for a single monitor on the Dual/Triple-Head2Go-ed "mega monitor" no matter how many physical monitors the "mega monitor" is comprised of.

              I like the product because it's close to a low-end video wall processor. Now if it translated touchscreen control coordinates...
