Thats right, the 4 monitor club.
I’ve heard it talked about a lot and based on the amount of multi-tasking I do, and the amount of screens I use on a consistent basis I knew I had to grow beyond the 2 I had previously.
I will be downgrading to 3 after today as 4 leaves me with no desk space and just isn’t efficient. Plus nobody here has 3 and I figure if I go around with 4, people will get jealous.
I originally wanted to do this because we had an old PCI NVidia card laying around, and recently some new monitors became free. So it seemed like a simple process. But when I went to put it all together, it turns out an NVidia card and an ATI card won’t co-exist peacefully.
I was absolutely amazed at this point, the computer booted up, the monitors did some turning on and off, and then all the monitors were working just as expected. I still needed to change the resolution and placement of the monitors, but I was just boggled that it took 0 setup after I plugged the card in.
I’m stoked.2 comments
