    1 monitor, 2 monitor, 3 monitor, 4??
    is it possible in a Power Mac G5 or any Mac tower that is to add more than 2 monitors? I guess what I'm asking is can you add a PCI card with a video output and add a third monitor or is that impossible? I'm guessing its impossible but would be very cool if you could?

    With a Mac Pro Tower...you can have up to 8 monitors!

    If having 3 monitors is "very cool"...then how would you describe 8 monitors on the same computer???

    Computer labs would be very simplified.

    And I would love a Pro or Power Mac G5 if I could ever afford one/find one.

    The Power Mac G5 can support 1 DVI and 1 Dual DVI extension. Do the math there, you might get up to 4 maximum (Mac Tracker doesn't specify).
