Uses your normal Graphics card to power the display onto 3 monitors, and it is not that bad a price.

Yes, it's been around quite a while. Lots of people know about it...


I mean, no one knows about it, so you may feed your ego the knowledge that you've introduced a brand new item to this large gethering of technology savvy folks!
(Btw, that PC case is the ugliest I've ever seen. It makes my blue/black Dell case look like an Alienware)

TT, the above swept wing thing aside, there was a thread on here a while back about those Fresnel Lenses and one of the posts, original poster I think, linked to a site that gave a design for a three Fresnel lens arrangement over 3 CRTs that provided for a seamless image, ie. no need to worry about the couple of inches of plastic surrounding the screens on the CRTs. As the lenses are pretty affordable, and I'm sure a chap of your skills could easily rig up the mounts for them, it might be something to consider to 'enhance' such a set up.

Here's a link to the doo-da. LINK TO DOO_DA. (http://www.rickleephoto.com/rlcoll.htm)
