    Quad display support for this card?

    Can this card allow 4 monitors to connect, each with its own display (not cloned)?

    Do you mean to extend the display across 4 screens? You should be able to extend across 2 screens, not sure about 4.

    I'm guessing you'd need a graphics card with 4 outputs.

    IIRC, no it can't. AMD Eyefinity or two cards needed for that at the moment.

    If you want to drive four monitors from one graphics card, you'll probably want to look at Matrox. They're not cheap though

    That's correct, would like to extend across 4 displays from the same computer.

    You can put multiple graphics cards inside a PC assuming you have adequate slots. That card along with a PCIe x1 card or two of those cards if your PC has two physical x16 slots would most likely work perfectly.

    This work PC has 2 PCI-E x16 slots, i run 2 a Geforce 7300 and a 8600, they have a dvi and vga outputs, so i run 4 monitors. All seperate desktops.
    Display fusion is great for customising the wallpapers.

    The first graphics card supports upto five displays, while the second can do four.

    I would hardly call DisplayPort crud. The review above also mentions this...

    All four inputs support DVI-D and DVI-I monitors though the resolution is limited to 1920x1200 for each connected display.
