    Successful Dual Video outs

    Ive been searching on this topic quite a bit lately
    Alot of projects always start out saying " I want 2 screens one with video and one with gps" and so on but not many ppl come back to say "hey i got it working!"
    what im wondering is cpu usage wise, power consumption, and specs wise
    if you have dual video outs on your system
    **NOT CLONED VIDEO BUT 2 TOTALLY DIFFERENT DISPLAYS (NVIEW)**
    what type of setup do you have
    is your system stable
    is the opus or your psu supporting your setup
    has anyone mastered this basically

    My main thing is epia is appealing but looks like video will be choppy if it can be done at all, HOWEVER then its a constant battle over power consumption and the inevitable "will the opus power this" thread.

    BTW ive done power consumption calculators but i get diff number on diff calculators

    SO if you have a functioning dual vid out system if you could post your specs and even trials and errors you went thru i think it would help out a bunch

    *im not looking for ppl to do the research for me i am planning an Asus A7N8X-VM and Mobile Athlon 2500+ system but im also confused on whether i need to put a second Geforce vid card, any housebrand vid card or if one of these or these will work*

    Thanks

    well at home i have 3 LCDs 2 vid cards You just set it as dual veiw and then you can have apps open in the A B C screen, i recomend a GeForce card. Or just get a shuttle barebones and if its the right one you will have dual VGA.

    Just get a Video card with dual heads and it should work.

    the Asus A7N8X-VM supports Nview apparently
    From the Asus Spec Page
    _____________________________
    VGA -Integrated GeForce4 MX GPU
    -Integrated TV encoder
    -NVIDA nVIEW dual-display architecture
    -Support DVI (AGP-NV-DVI) and TV out (AV/S) cards
    _____________________________

    I think thats confusing me a little
    the board only has from what i can see only has one vga out

    whats required for a second display one of the things i posted previously or a second gforce OR just a vid card

    i know this can be done i was just hoping to see some ppls working examples and get some feedback

    the dual head is only fromt he VGA and tV out. There is only one nForce2 IGP mATX board wheich has dual VGA out supporting nview and that is an Epox model.

    The only ways you could do it are
    a: run a VGA and svideo/rca screen
    b: put a PCI graphics card in and run both - but this is always crappy
    c: buy a dual head AGP card and disable the onboard graphics - easiest option
    d: buy the Epox!

    hold up a second, possible correction from above correct me if im wrong because if im not this seems to be the perfect board (for me)

    I read on the specs page
    ___________
    I/O CONNECTOR:
    PS/2 Mouse and PS/2 style Keyboard Printer, Audio-in/out, MIC connectors COM1, COM2, Game Port by extra Cable
    _________________
    scouse i saw a post on here this was your concern as well
    If I am reading the right specs it seems i can add just a cable and be done ?

    EDIT again

    someone on newegg said "I wish it supported clock multipliers because then you could use Mobile Athlons. Other than that, solid board."
    does the wire trick solve this or no im not much of an overclocker...
