Here's the Matrox site for some elaboration : http://www.matrox.com/mga/workstation/3dws/products/parhelia/128mb.cfm The Parhelia cards are capable of a maximum resolution of 3840 x 1024 which "stretches" over the three screens (ie. (1280 x 3) wide x 1024 high). The result is essentially the same as a single desktop on three screens. When you move the mouse arrow or any window or object to the edge of one screen, it simply starts to appear on the adjacent screen. As for Revit, or any software for that matter, all you have to do is maximise and the program will fill all three screens. You can then open each project view in Revit and resize and position them manually to fit on each screen as desired. One of the best features of this is that when you save a file, and close Revit, the next time you access this file, the views will open up on the same screens and at the same size you previously used them. So if you have the plan on screen 1, the model on screen 2 and the elevations on screen 3 for a given file, then every time you open that file, it opens in that exact view configuation. The configuration is saved with the file. Best of all, you can save different view configurations for different files, depending on the views most commonly used for a project. Rob, there really is no standard or limit to the number of screens, it's just a matter of how much space you have and what's affordable. I aquired three screens over a few years, I couldn't afford them all at once, but as LCD prices dropped significantly, as well as the price of Matrox cards, I was able to throw it all together. In relation to SLI or Crossfire, you can only SLI two identical PCI-e nVidia cards (that both support SLI) and various ATI PCI-e cards can be in Crossfire. Matrox has only single card solutions to date. (PS.Rob: the missus has 2 of her own screens, one's on the microwave and the others on the front loading washing machine and I havn't left her yet, sorry just being a sexist curse) Post edited on 2006-01-25 02:25:25
