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.

  • As a side question: What kind of interface is this newegg.com/Product/…? That looks almost like SCSI

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.
