    Networking a few things :)

    I want to link up my computer in a certain way and i want to know whether it is possible to do it, how to do it so that it works, the names of any software that i need.
    I want to have 1 PC and 3 monitors.
    I want one monitor to be directly linked to the PC, then the others are extra.
    I want the main monitor to display EVERYTHING, and then the other monitors display what i want, which will be too seperate things.
    I want to be able to have the same program open for each of the slave monitors, but have different sessions for each. i then want to be able to use the main pc and monitor to control each of the seperate screens and programs.
    Now is this possible? If so how and what do i need, and if not is there any other way i can get around it?

    I've attached an image of what i want it to be like, so that it'll make more sense than me rambling on.

    I do hope that someone can help me.

    Many thanks in advance,

    I get the picture lol:)

    Okay I'm going to take it by the way that no-one's replied to my post that it's not possible to do it the way that i want. In that case does anyone know of another setup that would have the same effect? It can have anything, i.e. 3 PC's and 3 Monitors, that's not a problem, i just need to know

    Many thanks in advance

    What you want may be possible but you'll need a video card with multiple outputs (http://www.matrox.com/mga/archive_st...idisplay.cfm50 for a possibility) and then it's still up to what the video drivers provide in multi-monitor options.

    Edit: That link doesn't work but http://www.matrox.com/ has a link on their home page to their Parhelia card which may give you what you want.
