I have an Acer Aspire 8735G-6502 that has an Nvidia GeForce GT 240M chipset and only one VGA port for an external monitor. I am looking to set it up with something like 3 external monitors, but I don't know if this is possible.
I have seen solutions like plugging in USB->VGA adapters (with devices like Iogear GUC2015V), but I don't know if the refresh rate on the monitor would be so great under those conditions. Would the refresh rate be bad on those monitors plugged in through USB? I don't need it to play games or anything, but if moving the mouse around my desktop is laggy that would not be awesome. Would all the graphics processing in this case be handled by the CPU?
Really the goal is to close the laptop and tuck it away and use external mouse/kb and have the 3 monitors, so any solutions/ideas in that area would be appreciated.
