I've noticed that when you run the setup app, it recommends nothing in some setups... which is interesting.
Either way, a single card that's powerful enough to run 4 monitors at 23/24" monitor resolutions will cost more than 2x weaker cards that can run two monitors each.

fishymamba, what resolution do you use for gaming, by the way? I was OK with a single GTX460 (1GB 256-bit) at 1680 x 1050, but when I got a 1920 x 1080 monitor, it just couldn't keep up on games like Crysis 2 at maximum eye candy anymore. I then bought a second GTX460 and set them up in SLI.

By the way, here's a direct comparison between the GTS450 and the GTX460 1GB 256-bit: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Produ...32.233.234.235
I use a 1600x900 monitor nothing fancy, unfortunately the GTX 460 will not fit in my case, the GTS 450 barely gets in.

'cept I'm trying to put it into a system that only supports one video card... I'm not about to try and convince my boss I need a new computer, but a new video card I could pull. I'm seeing some 4xDVI video cards for about $200 which might be doable.
