Wink oh sexy thing!

http://sys.us.shuttle.com/G5_2000.aspx

that is a very sexy machine... i believe it actually has support for using both the integrated and PCI-E video cards at the same time, so you can use 4 monitors simultaneously.

I'm interested in getting one, though I can't find just a barebone kit.... Anyone know where?

thanks alot,

integrated video sucks. not only is it not very good, but it uses your RAM and CPU, and slows it down.

I use 2 and it has improved efficiency quite a lot. But 4 monitors would be pointless, but cool.

I've never run more than one monitor and have yet to encounter a situation where I said to myself, "I sure need another monitor running simutaniously."

Its nice to have a multiple display for what I do- Its useful to see source code in one display, project tree in another, etc... build status, etc.

rrrrrr.
