Multi monitor screensavers

Just got my new workstation assembled (Quad Core 2.4ghz, 3gb RAM, Raid 1 160gb drives, all SATA, even optical, and 2x Dell 22"w utrasharps) and looking for something nice to use as a screensaver. Needs to hide the desktop and not be picture and video based, show on both screens, and hopefully use both as one giant canvas.

Any suggestions?

Draw maps, run the network.. surf MCB We get some very large print files and base map images that hit the 1gb a piece mark in file size, and my old single core 3ghz machine wasnt cutting it.

All that and a bag of chips from dell for 1100 dollars. (we bought 2)

It runs everything suprisingly fast in Vista ultimate.

$1100, I'd call that a smoking deal if the monitors were included in that.

I know how large maps can get in file size. I used to use a topo background of the U of A and a very basic CAD drawing was HUGE. Easily 50x the size of a typical background.

I used to have a Matrix code screensaver on my dual monitor set up...I'm pretty sure I got it from C|Net's free download section. These days though I just have the screens shut off.

Would be nice if someone could make a screen saver that look like a classic video game, imagine a game of pong playing across the two screens.

Pong screensaver only works on 1 screen, and it wont play by itself.

Plus Im looking for something snappy to show off the screens and the 512mb video card
