I had the same thoughts, as well.
I'm thinking of replacing my 17" CRT with an LCD (which will mean
finances are limited for mythtv). (My TV is only 14" at the minute so
17" would be an improvement.)

I've put two cards in my more powerful box, with two monitors attached.
I'm having trouble finding documents on configuring the two cards. I'm
imagining that each video card would run it's own X-Server.=20

I don't understand how the keyboard would work....

... hopefully someone can fill the gaps in my knowledge here.

(Still as far as having MythTV installed - but not having managed to get
it into permanent use)
