    Multiple video cards multiple audio cards

    Hey all just wondering is it possible to put more thank one video and more than one audio card in a computer and use it almost like it was two computers?

    Could you play different music on one screen and have something playing on the other screen with different music?

    Could u make it so you could watch two movies one on each screen?

    Thanks for all the help

    Just wondering because it would be really nice if you could set like one lilliput up front and one out back and be able to have music playing and some one watching a movie with like head phones on. I know u can do the multiple screens and do different things on them just donít know about the multiple audio outs.

    I would appreciate any ideas

    Even if you havenít actually done something like this just some guesses on how I might rig this up and if there is any chance it mite work

    yes, and yes. i think you can choose which sound device certain programs (like winamp) use for playback. i haven't tried either, but i'm pretty sure it's possible.

    Yes. ThinSoft has software to do this called BeTwin. You can run up to 5 consoles off of a single PC with seperate video, sound, keyboard, and mouse for each. They also sell a kit including some hardware that makes it pretty easy to get going called BuddyPC.

    I would be curious to know how BeTwin performs with this USB2.0 VGA graphics adaptor.. Using that, you wouldn't even need a PCI slot for your second (third/fourth) video card. You could really do some neat stuff with this kind of setup in a car. It'd sure make back seat dvd /front seat GPS style installations a lot easier.

    I don't know.. they are supposed to run around $40 so it woudlnt' be all that expensive to get one just to try.. tell you what, if you get one and you can't play video over it, I will buy it from you to use for presentations and stuff on my laptop
