I have recently acquired 2x24 inch 1920x1200 monitors. I want to add them my machine that already has 2x22 inch 1680x1050 monitors. What combination of graphics cards do I need to make this work? This is a purely work computer that I use for development and I will not be doing any gaming on it. However, I do need some hardware acceleration for desktop composition.My current setup
HP Z400 Workstation (motherboard has two PCI-E 16x and two PCI-e 8x Connectors)
1x Quadro NVS295 -> Two Display Ports -> 2x22 inch 1670x1050 monitors.What I think I need
Get 2x GeForce 210 512MB 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 @ $24.99
and put one on each of the two X16 PCIE slots.
This should give 4 DVI ports across the two cards.Now for the questions:
-Will this work under Windows 8?
-Do I need to do anything special with the drivers to get this to work?
-Can I even mix and match ATI and NVIDIA cards on the same system?
-if I want to "future-proof" it even further, can I stick in 4 of the above cards (2 in the x16 slots and 2 in the x8 slots) and have access to 8 monitors?
