My office has a number of identical monitors laying around that will be trashed unless I can think of something to do with them. I was thinking of getting 2 of these and putting them in an extra box. Are these graphics cards a good choice?

After the graphics cards, what software would be good to monitor several webpages/programs, each on their own screen?

Any tips from someone who has built an office status display? This whole setup will likely be running ubuntu.

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

As a side question: What kind of interface is this…? That looks almost like SCSI – TheLQ Jul 19 '10 at 17:17
In pictures, it looks like it is some weird cable that transforms the output to 4 DVI ports – mvid Jul 19 '10 at 18:18

If its one website per screen, you should be able to just use your OS to configure a multi-monitor set up, and run the web browsers and apps, one per screen. Shouldn't need any fancy software.
