    I'm not neccesarily new to the mac world, but I do have a question. I know how to hook up two monitors to a single video card on the G5, but how would I connect the 3rd, or 4th? Is it even possible?


    I'm hoping it is... can someone please help a chappy out?

    They were talking about this just recently on TechTV. You'll have to install another/multiple (depending on how many other monitors you want) PCI video cards. Though, it should be noted that you WILL NOT achieve great performance from these because they are running off of the PCI bus.
