    We've been lacking one of these, so I took it upon myself to start one!

    Post links, NOT the screenshot itself. Thumbnails linking to the actual picture are probably ideal.

    Nothing shocking and not even porn ... so quite unusual, it seems.

    Mine, for now. Sometime next week Windows is going to be completely re-installed, as I'm upgrading my system thoroughly ... if I find the time, at last.

    Click for larger version.


    Eh, as far as I know you need simply a video card that supports it. I know Matrox made video cards like that; my brother has one, as well as three monitors connected to it. It just doesn't work all that great for games, because the performance is shitty (not because of the three monitors, but because it's Matrox)

    What might work as well is if you use two video cards, provided you can fit two on your board.

    Pretty easy, actually. If you're using some form of Linux, like Ubuntu or Sayaban or Gentoo, the easiest way is to get two nvidia video cards. ATI has the shittiest driver support in the world.

    Windows, on the other hand, once you get them installed, it's pretty easy.

    With Linux, you just toss your cards in, install them, install nvidia-settings for your nvidia cards, and you're off.

    Windows is install, then point and click.

    Pretty unoriginal, but I like the whole post-apocalyptic theme for my desktops.

    Both desktops (laptop and other computer) while using teamviewer.

    The usual background is Hogwarts at dawn, but the background is turned off when the remote controlls are enabled.

    Before I got the new systems I had these:
