If you are running multiple cards in a Windows box without monitors you might find a dummy plug convenient.  

You can do this with three:

Or this with one if you want to it quick and dirty.

For 1 BTC I will ship three resistors in a standard first class mail envelope for US customers.  Email me for a bitcoin address to send to, do not use my signature or I will not be able to sort em out.  For each additional resistor over three add 20 bitcents.

I am just sending resistors, it is up for you to put them into a connector if needed.  

If you need a DVI to VGA plug I can sell that for 2BTC along with a resistor order but I think most of us got em for free with our video cards.

If that is a displayport card, right now the way I know of is to use a displayport to DVI or VGA  cable then put the resistor there.  Do those cards come with some kind of adapters in the box?

Resistors are pretty cheap, but postage from USA to Europe is not.  It might pay for someone else in the EU to do the same thing as I am doing for the US.  If I did ship to Europe it would cost 2BTC more, Canada and Mexico 1BTC more.  And yes, I know you did not say your location, it is just a guess.

It would cost me about $2.04 or roughly 1.5 more bitcoins.  I am more then willing to do it of course, but there may be a local option for you that is cheaper.

I presume doing it with 3 is more safer? :)

I think so but I am not really sure.  I have seen it done both ways.  I am going to add these to my online store at http://cryptoanarchy.us/  tonight and they will be priced at $1 plus 99 cents shipping converted to BTC at the end of checkout.  So they will now be around .33 BTC!
