comment 3 Monitor PCI-e Graphics card on Linux (without tremendous pain)?
Regarding the adapter - ok, so you now have 2 displays connected via DVI and one via DisplayPort-to-HDMI adapter? That should have done the trick if the source of the issue were the ports (it might have helped anyway, but it dies not seem to be the root cause). Can you specify the model of your graphics card (on top of 5750) and which driver version you are using please? Unless anyone has better advice, I'd suggest also trying to ask on the official AMD and Ubuntu forums.

Regarding Single-/Dual-link DVI - the Dual-link one contains more connectors/wires which can be used to transfer the video signal, thus allowing to transfer more data over the interface - e.g. for achieving higher resolutions or refresh rates.

comment Linux for work, virtualized Windows for games?
Thanks for the feedback Jason. Similarly as VMware, VirtualBox contains support for OpenGL/D3D acceleration and even on non-Windows hosts ... but it's still very experimental. I was hoping that the bare-metal hypervisors were more ahead with this, it seems that they are not. Regarding using Windows as a host - yes, that's an option that I'm considering, but I'm leaning more towards a Linux host as that one can be 64b (I'd have to purchase Win7 while upgrading to 64b).

comment Linux for work, virtualized Windows for games?
As Ignacio said, I'm not happy to hear that ... but I expected this to be the case. You saved me a lot of time wasted on experimenting, I have a much better view on the next steps now - thanks for the feedback guys! Thanks for the tip on Synergy+ as well - I knew similar solutions, but not this one. I may give it a try if I go with the 2-machine option (at least for work, I agree that it might be problematic for games).

comment Linux for work, virtualized Windows for games?
Mostly because I wanted to avoid loss of context while rebooting into the other OS (i.e. there may be a few apps for which I won't find a good GNU/Linux alternative). But I'm starting to see that this might be my only solution (other than to get a new machine).

comment How good is Opera for developers?
@Metropolis: thank you! I completely forgot about that, as I was working in sensitive data for a very long time. Technically, I still am, but now that I looked into it thanks to your nudge, I see that the link to the validator can be changed in opera:config#UserPrefs|ValidationURL ... so now just to setup a local validation service :)
