Look what I found at http://textures.forrest.cz/

http://textures.forrest.cz/cgi-bin/showimage.cgi?page=maps&pic=Earth-hires.jpg

Click the link, wait for the image to download, save to disk, resize (I cut the edges so that it was exactly 2048x768), set as a wallpaper and stare...

If you know of any other galleries that offer high resolution images (width of 2048 pixels and above), please share your links.

Select Tile, and it will span it across both monitors as one big picture.

It helps if you resize the image to approximate your actual desktop real estate.

2 line post with a 70 line sig! LOL That has to be some kind of record.
