Gordon: The traditional way is to use a multiple-display video card, or more than one single-display video card. A quick search shows that, apparently, USB will also support display output with the proper driver and monitor that'll accept it, but I have zero experience with that. Windows or Mac will natively support more than one monitor (one article I read said up to 10 with Windows XP), as long as it can see them. Multiple-connection video adapters also often include software which simplify moving between different settings and arrangements of monitors. You can also purchase a simple splitter for VGA, but doing this gives you no control over how the extra display is used (the OS only sees one monitor), and there is some reduction of output level so monitors can appear dimmer. I doubt there are splitters for digital outputs, but I've never looked. Hope this helps!
