In that case, a normal splitter won't work.  You could try a couple of these from Matrox.  Not cheap but probably not a bad solution.....

Combined with the dual-output cards you already have they should do the job.  Could maybe add 1 at first and then see about further expansion later.

I should add that the preference is to support all DVI connections, with each monitor displaying separate graphs. In other words, he doesn't want information doubled on any screen.

Wow. That's an expensive card. The 9500GT cards were only $65 each.

I was thinking that a video port splitter might work to achieve the 8 monitors. I guess I'll find out in time, if he in fact goes to 8 monitors. I'm thinking that once he sees how effective 4 widescreen monitors will be, he'll probably be happy with that.

Could return the other cards and go with something like this.

Then just add another when needed in a non crossfire setup.

May also be possible to set something up with some sort of video splitter. I've never gone past two monitors at a time.

No, it will not be an SLI setup. I figured two cards since each will support two monitors. He will start with two monitors, but plans on running 4 monitors soon.

The OS will be Win7 Home Premium.

Is this going to be an SLI setup? Is that the reason for the two cards?



You don't need two cards for a multiple monitor setup, the nvidia software will handle the setup just fine.

What is the operating system going to be?

I'm building a computer for a customer, who has a need for multiple monitors. The build will include two nVidia 9500GT video cards, each capable of running 2 monitors.

The customer, who trades world currencies, already purchased two Samsung widescreen flat panels and will soon purchase two more. However, he ultimately hopes to run a total of 8 monitors.

My question is how do I make that happen for him? The ASUS motherboard will only hold two video cards, and each video card will only support two monitors.

Thanks in advance for any help/direction.

Yes, Windows 7 has partition management, similar to that in Vista.  To all intents and purposes, the SSD is the same as any conventional disk when it comes to partitioning in Windows 7.

You'll need to create a boot cd and run Memtest before Windows loads. Go to the download page and download the ISO for creating a bootable CD. Once you've created the CD, reboot the computer with the CD in place and Memtest will run.
