    Question 4 at once?

    I have a friend who wants to run 4 lcds at once. Hooking them up is no problem, just use 2 video cards with 2 dvis each. BUT, he wants to be able to monitors 4 different pages at the same time. Is there software that will allow this? any help is appreciated. He's into the stock market.

    You can drag Firefox or IE windows across any of the monitors in a multi-monitor setup. So if you open 4 different pages in 4 different windows (not tabs) you can keep one in each monitor.

    Or did I not understand the question correctly?

    That would be part of it, but he would need like an rss feed, so that the page would be in real time, without constantly having to refresh the page. I found some software that might be the ticket, after I googled multi monitor.

    UltraMon is really good, but I currently use MultiMon with my two monitor setup. Both have trials for you to try and see which one works best for you.
