OK, I'll do the best I can to ask the correct questions on what might concern me.
Question #1) One thing I was never sure about or comfortable with was using one graphics card with 2 DVI ports and 2 Display ports or HDMI ports connected up to 4 monitors.
I just didn't think that I'd get the same performance from the display ports or HDMI ports as I would from the DVI ports but from what I'm reading here and in a Google search, it makes no difference-Is this a correct statement?
Question #2) Following that train of thought, what about using a video card that has 4 mini display ports and then using adapter cables: mini display to DVI ports like the graphics card JustAnEngineer posted? No loss of performance?
Question #3) So......is there any reason, except for money, why I couldn't 't buy 2 graphics cards with at least 2 DVI ports in each of them and install them on a motherboard and just use the 4 DVI ports to connect 4 DVI cables to 4 monitors? Once I install the drivers, these two cards should see the 4 displays, correct?
I shouldn't need to connect the 2 cards together with an SLI link, should I? Remember, I'll be using Windows 7 Professional if that matters.
I certainly don't think I'd want to go the route of having 2 DVI ports, 1 (mini) display port, and one HDMI port-all one 1 graphics card and running 4 monitors off from that set up! Seems like too many variables.
I'd feel more comfortable going with a 4 mini display card and using 4 mini display to DVI adapter cords.
Or if someone can convince me to use 1 graphics card with 2 DVI ports and 2 HDMI or 2 Display ports, I might go that route.
I'd feel even more comfortable going with 2 video cards with 2 DVI ports in each card and using 4 DVI to DVI cables from the cards to the 4 monitors.
Question #4) lol....It's the LAST one!!! Could someone explain the Pros and Cons of using 2 video cards vs. 1 video card?
Thanks again for all the help
As for GeForce6200's question: I have my Dell S2209W monitors set at 1280x960 resolution.
