Default using 3 monitors

I have a couple 19in lcd's running right now, but I want to run a third 17in about 10-15ft away to stream movies on. I know I am probably going to want to run dvi because of the distance. But I don't know what to use to run the third screen? Should I use some sort of switch on my secondary monitor?

Thanks,
Lance

Default Re: using 3 monitors

buy an extra card the 8400 comes in at £35 in the uk so about $50 its a pile of wank to play games on but probably manages general use quite well
