Setting up a two-LCD display

Setting up a two-LCD display - techie FYI. I just reconfigured my 2-head setup. I did (a little) research, looking for a display adapter that would support two digital 1600x1200 pixel LCDs. I settled on a Matrox Parhelia. It meets my requirements. So far, very nice. One caveat which was a surprise, and I didn't think to ask: with this board at least, both digital outs have to be at the same resolution. If the two displays have different capabilities (like mine do) then you have to run it at the lower of the two. Bummer. Workaround: if you run with one LCD in digital and the other in Analog mode, then this restriction is lifted. That's what I am doing.
