eally no special software you need, just video cards with drivers that
support multiple monitors. I've been doing multi monitor since 98. Recently
it's gotten much easier to do, as most high end video cards are not dual
head cards. Configuration with them is much more reliable (that you'll get
it working) than having two cards.
With that said you can go with one of the following:
1) 1 agp dual head card
2) 1 Agp card and 1 pci card
3) 2 pci cards
I've had the best luck when doing dual cards using ATI's cards. If you go
the multi card route I would suggest searching on multiple monitors, there
are a few sites out there that allow people to share their experience of
what cards they used an how hard/easy they were to get configured. I
actually screwed up my 98 machine so bad once I had to reinstall, but then
again it was 98.
I would highly suggest getting a dual head card if you are going to do it. I
currently have two Matrox G450's and a ATI 9800Pro all three are dual head
and have served me very well. NVida makes dual head cards as well, though
I've never used one as of yet.
http://search.ebay.com/g450_W0QQfkrZ1QQfromZR8 <-- searched on G450, appears
they go for around $10. Third link in the result, at least for the next
8hrs, is a Quad version of the card. G450 is great for a development
machine, but wouldn't do well with today's games.
