Maybe, but I don't have enough ego to act that way.

Shouldn't be any problem. Most video cards that have dual monitor support will have a standard monitor output, a digital output, and an S-Video output. Obviously Monitor1 will be in the standard plug in, so you have to make sure Monitor2 has a digital or S-Video input otherwise you'll have to start dealing with all kinds of adapters and such. S-Video input is pretty standard on your better quality TV's if you want a large display however those extra inputs on a regular monitor are going to be more expensive and harder to find.....hence the adapters....and keep in mind this IS only video, not video and sound.

However, your options are basically endless, keep in mind that quality and functionality are directly related to expense in computer world, but if you can dream it, chances are there's already multiple ways to do it.

It is real easy Anime talk to their brain and not to their curves. They would like you to talk to their curves and it is easy to slip off down that trail if you are new to the game. I treat the ladies with respect but at the same time I do not let them use cheap weapons like crying or blinking those eyes to put me on my heals stay on your toes Sir. They are all part of the YA YA Sisterhood. Ya,ya,ya

Don't use s-video for anything other than movies, tv, etc. It's 480 lines of resolution (and interlaced on top of that) so you'll go crazy trying to use it as a computer display.

I am with Pokie. I think all the attitude adjustments are doing the boy some good! He just got his first kiss.

Yes this is true to an extent, while the TV is great for videos and gaming, reading normal sized text is virtually impossible. However this is as much a result of a regular TV set not being able to compete with the resolution capabilities of a computer monitor as the method of input....

Right, even if you have a monitor with high enough resolution, s-video will only carry a 480i signal.

Lightbulb I do this in my classroom

I purchased a VGA splitter from Dell and run PowerPoints on my second monitor while I still have complete control of my normal desktop. Also, to extend the second monitor to the window you will need an additional VGA cable of whatever length you require. That should be the lowest cost/hassle solution.

So you are saying you have dual monitors with their own desktops without a video card designed for dual monitor support?

Please expound if this is the case.....I've never heard of such a thing.

Thanks again! You all have helped me tremendously! I will start on this next week. Will probably have to come back and ask some more questions, so stay tuned. Brain, you will be able to see the results. Let me know what you think. I am not sure how long it will take to get it all set up. Don't faint, but I am the one who does our website. Excuse me for bragging, I feel we have the best one. I have worked hard to make sure we are on the first page in the top search engines. Yahoo is giving me some problems since all the changes, but that is my next project. Google loves us. I welcome any suggestions.

Hello, that computer clearly shows a video card with multiple video outputs while it seems you are saying you use ONLY a line splitter to have two separate desktops.
