    No video card? No Problem! USB monitors!

    http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/oth...g-sm940ux.html


    With the use of an onboard video signal decompresser, USB monitors can actually function without a graphics card at resolutions up to 1600x1200 at 24bit color. It can run on some pretty low-end equipment without bogging down, too. You can even chain 2-4 monitors on one USB port! You don't get any 3D acceleration (since it's handled by the GPU of a graphics card), but everything 2D seems to work just fine. Another cool feature is that the drivers are loaded into the monitor itself, so no install CDs are required.
