Bought an Active Adapter Mini DisplayPort to DVI-D and using ATI Eyefinity Technology allows all three monitors to be directly connected to the ATI graphics card and grouped as one desktop.


1. Matrox TripleHead2Go no longer necessary
2. Better graphics quality
3. Higher FPS rate in FS
4. Catalyst bezel is much better than Matrox bezel - no desktop loss


I use Matrox TripleHead2Go Digital Edition. 

This device enables to add three digital monitors with a maximum resolution of up to 3840x1024, even if that system only supports a single display output. There is no image distortion and no scaling to the original raw pixels generated from the existing graphics accelerator.

Another variant to reach large perspective is the program Wideview. Wideview can be used to create cockpits with panoramic scenery view, through multiple monitors on networked PCs. There is no limit on how many PCs can be linked together, and view angles can be easily customized, to get perfectly matching images throughout the LAN. To properly see the traffic on all LAN PCs you also need the program Widetraffic. Widetraffic is an optional module ensuring AI and multiplayer traffic synchronization throughout the network.

An interesting hardware is USB VGA External Dual or Multi Monitor Video Adapter.

The USB VGA External Adapter turns a single USB 2.0 port into a VGA output - providing high quality, dual display or multi-monitor capability for a variety of laptop or desktop applications.Functioning as an external graphics card, the device supports resolutions up to 1600x1200 allowing you to connect your external monitor without having to open the computer case to install or upgrade your existing video card. The device provides the option to mirror your display so that both are showing the same content, or extend your desktop to the secondary monitor increasing your screen real-estate. It is possible more than one adapter connected to one PC.

Another possibility for external monitor is this software. MaxiVista turns any spare Desktop, Laptop or Netbook PC into a dual monitor for your primary computer. No extra multi monitor hardware is required. Simply extend program windows across multiple screens as if it were one big monitor. Increase your productivity by using multiple monitors. There is also free demo version.
