well i googled for one but they were like 200 bucks.  Just wondering if their were any workarounds.  A new video card for the laptop would be cheaper.

Its seems stupid because my damn KVM switch for like 30 bucks.  200 bucks for a dvi splitter?  WTF

I am hopeing to use the video out on the projectors (if they have one, don't know yet).

I'd be suprised if there wasn't a cheapter video splitter option.  Tech acquired one for my classroom so I could use my monitor and my projector at the same time.

Tigerdirect usually has a USB "video card" type thing, basically just a USB adapter that has a VGA port on the end.  Perhaps that would work.

Like this.

Nope, won't work.  You need a distribution amplifier like this one www.extron.com/product/product.aspx?id=d2da4dvi&subtype=186
