    Hey, I was wondering if it was possible to hook up three monitors to a G5. Two will be mirrored and one will be to the side. Also, what video card would i need to have, and would it be possible with a video card with two DVI connectors and just hook up a splitter cable of some sort to one of the ports. Thanks.

    I have triple displays on my G4 right now. I have mine set up on two separate video cards, so that I can control each display independently. For your setup, the splitter sounds like the best solution. I don't know if there are any DVI splitters, so you may need to use a VGA splitter (which I know exist) with two VGA displays/adaptors.
