    A video card with two outputs is one method. What's your existing hardware?

    Thanks for the quick response , but if a have lets say 3 or 4 Monitors which all have DVI-Cables , how would i plug them all together , should i have multiple Graphic Cards or do i need a special Port-replicator , Because as far as i am concerned , Graphic cards have a maximum of 3 Ports or 4 ports with different interfaces (eg. 1xDVI 1xhdmi 1xvga 1x svideo). Thanx

    Anyway, you start with a graphics card that supports 2 monitors (and that's compatible with your motherboard

    Way too much info to say there, I'm sure there must be many guides on this across the web
    You can even contact your computer manufacturer and ask them :)
