I can set a wallpaper for each screen, so I dont have to worry about mine stretching.

bryce, if you want to set a different wallpaper for each monitor.. then i would take your two favourite wallpapers, double the width and put them side by side in a photoshop file, save as jpeg and apply it (Y). I think thats what your asking. Thats just my thoughts though, i personally dont have 2 monitors at the moment because if i did it i would do it right with 2 flats 19inchers or something. im a major ati fan, seeing i rarely if ever play games on this computer. The cards have been wonderful and personally i would suggest them... my card at the moment has quite a few new settings tabs (basically 4 times the original ammount of tabs) of options. Its amazing what this thing offers. It does have one graphical feature which is pretty cool where it is called hydravision (i think) it simulates shadows on everything. It can also add some nifty effects to all your windows.. I prefer not to use it though as it does take up more ram.

@M:
No, he doesn´t stretch it or something like that, he uses the same wallpaper on each screen.

Well, on mine when I go into my display settings it will let me set wallpaper for each individual screen. Like I said though, Im using a geforce fx with nview.

Multi-monitor setups are fun.
