So heres my problem...I have my Black Macbook, A huge This-End-up solid wood desk, A very modern room, and a $500 budget. I would really like a multiple monitor set up. But is has to look good, as in they have to all be the same type of monitor and it has to be symmetrical, I have no idea where to start, How many monitors can I drive with my Macbook? Am i better off investing in one large monitor? and finally, any suggestions on monitors?

Without a video device\adapter, you can only drive one external monitor with your Mac. Your BlackBook uses an Intel GMA X3100 integrated GPU which really isn't all that fast anyway. I have the same GPU and use an external Samsung 22" when at home. It works well.

Here's an article that shows how to do it with a MBP. Might have some hints you can use.

Regards.
