Ive got a project Im about to start on and this is one of my problems. I need the picture to span across two screens at a lazy angle. Id prefer to use TVs, since the motion blur would be perfect for this, but monitors are probably more realistic, they just will cost more. Ive also toyed with the idea of arcade game monitors, but at a max resolution of 320, thats not happening. So any suggestions not made by matrox?

Matrox is the best, but for what its going to cost to do the entire thing Im thinking of, itll cost to get the matrox parhellia board.

If price and size were not factors, yes, yes I would.

Actually you should see some of the setups I've seen in army trainers. They have one where you sit in an aircraft like chair that is on the ground, then a over the shoulder projector blasts out a full 180 degree view on a curved screen. All this takes up less room than a normal computer desk.

If you just want two outputs go buy a couple cheap PCI cards. Or, if you need the GPU power, a decent AGP/PCI board + cheap PCI board.

2 DVI outputs though.

I suppose there could be some sort of converter box, but it would be cheaper just to buy a crappy PCI card for the 2nd output.

DVI to Analog converters are cheap. DVI to S-Video not sure (or if you can find one). I've found a MiniDVI to S-Video/Component and DVI to MiniDVI converters.
