i had one of these in 2001, driving a dual setup. there were ghosts of the second screen on the first. and oddly, it was a ghost of the VGA screen on the DVI screen (at the time, the cards didnt have DVI, but they had this addon bridge thing which was unshielded pins to another connector on a second pci slot). the bottom line is, the signal quality was questionable, and the cards are massively obsolete.
