  1. Where in the UK can I buy a DVI to VGA converter to use another VGA monitor using the DVI socket on my GF4?

    I know these converters are around somewhere but i'm not sure where to buy though.

    On the subject of using 2 displays (or TwinView), who can tell me some examples of where you would find two displays useful? e.g. 1 display used for word processing and the other for some fancy full screen animation plugin with Winamp playing music.

    It should have come with your card. I know it comes with the Gainward.

    Just extra desktop. Multiple browser windows, multiple apps open without being on top of each other. You can fit a whole lotta stuff on a 3200x1200 desktop. The downside is that pop up dialogue boxes open up in the divider between the screens.

    I found having two monitors was useful, for, say, watching a DVD or other movie on your primary monitor and surfing the net/IRCing on the other :cool:

    It's kinda useless in games for me because my primary monitor displays the game and the other screen just turns black, or if I click anything on the other screen it minimizes the game on my other screen :rolleyes:
