Multimonitor graphics shootout at TR

2 are better than one - that's what we believe - and that goes for displays too. The Tech Report takes a good look at the various setups and manufacturers involved from Matrox to nVidia.
I suppose it's only natural that, with PCs growing ever more powerful and capable of performing multiple tasks at once, we'd put them to use doing just that.

Why not just run two or more displays with a single graphics card?
