I got a new video card, but it only got the correct resolution in digital mode, not analog (so I ditched my KVM). Video card futzes out and goes blank at irregular intervals. Should have returned it early on. too late, now.... [[~OtherMichael]] June 09, 2010, at 11:11 AM


!! Multiple monitors
I finally got a second monitor at worked (found a dusty, un-used LCD in an otherwise empty cube).

!! I need a monitor

I've got an old, bulky 17" CRT that takes up half my desk. It's too close to my face, and I can't move it any further back, unless I pull the desk from the wall, and that's not going to work, either.

I'm now used to a [[http://www.viewsonic.com/products/vg2021m.htm|ViewSonic VG2021m]] at work. 20". 22 annd 24 sound so GOOD, though....

Or, what about TWO 20" displays? That would be a more cost effective way to get a ... two-panel display....

Not sure if my current machine could handle all of that, though....
