Windows 7: Multi-Monitor setup

Multi-Monitor setup

Hi all

Recommendation on Video Cards required for Multi Monitor setup.

I'd like to have 4 monitors connected simultaneously with independent controls (for using Photoshop CS4 etc).

Do I need video cards with Multi monitor input or several different video cards installed (even if this IS possible on most Mobos I think I only have 2 possible slots anyway for this).

Any ideas anyone (need it all to work on Windows 7 x-64).

I currently have an old card working on XP which has 2 Monitor inputs -- I don't need all the 3D etc for Photoshop processing.

The Windows 7 system I'm using has 16 GB RAM so there's enough for the Video.

Cheers
jimbo

Photoshop CS4 actually uses gpu acceleration. See at:

edit | preferences | performance | GPU settings

Two dual-dvi output cards should do well for you operating independently, for the total of 4 monitors.

Hi there

I've got enough slots to go down this route so this seems fine.

Thanks for the info -- any that work on Windows 7 yet.

Cheers
