Wacom Cintiq with dual monitors

Saturday, November 8th, 2008

A couple of days ago I was asked by Gordon Robb about my Cintiq post the following question

“…how does the cintiq connect if you already have two monitors. I have this setup, but my graphics card only has two outputs, so where would the cintiqu go? This is the only thing stopping me buying it.”

Thanks for your question Gordon. My solution is two dual output graphics cards (ATI Radeon 4800 series). This allows me to have my two main monitors and the Cintiq as an auxiliary. Because my deskspace is limited I’m not in a position to use the Cintiq as a third monitor all the time but on rare occasions when three screens have come in very handy. I use ultramon to handle my existing dual monitor setup and it can handle the Cintiq as a third monitor just fine.
