Hi all,

i have a question concernig the use of projectors.  I want to build a screen of 180or 220 degrees with two or more projectors.  Every time i read about someones setup for more than 1 projector they talk about more pc's . My question is if its possible to use more projectors on 1 pc because my videocard has more connections than one.  Or is it possible for 1 pc and more videocards to operate 2 or more projectors.  What is the advantage by using more pc's

You would do well by reading the dozens of posts regarding this topic. Simply put, if you want higher frame rates, go with multiple PCs. Several of us have built a single PC visuals with up to 3 projectors. The major factor is what frame rate do you want as a trade off with scenery complexity.
