    I have to have 5.
    My work is footing the bill, but try to keep it as cheap as possible. We prefer to deal with Dell.

    Any suggestions?

    Let me guess: you're a stockbroker and you need to have a zillion windows onscreen to feed your Type-A personality. Close?

    If you "PREFER" to deal with Dell, then why not CALL Dell and TALK to them DIRECTLY ???:ugh:

    I'm sure they have a solution for your "type-a" personality :rofl:

    Build yourself or get one with dual workstation video cards that support 4+ monitors each.

    EDIT:

    i would contact dell directly to see what they offer, if they offer this type of solution.

    else get a dell tower with an onboard or whatever video card it comes with with more than two pci slots available

    and two pci dual dvi video cards to put in.

    usually onboard is disabled when a card is plugged in. it usually shares the same bus, so no go on this idea. need 4port and 2 port or some other combination

    I have a station next to me that has 3 monitors.
    It was done with 1 AGP card and 1 PCI card. The AGP card had 2 heads (outputs) on it and the PCI card has one.

    Works fine. There is NOTHING special about the computer.
    I am under the impression that you can keep dropping in video cards and get more monitors. This really isn't rocket science.

    My MOBO can support 2xPciE graphics cards.

    so getting two graphics with 2x output i could have 4.

    dunno about 5. bit of an odd number. why not have 6?

    My machines don't do this. The couple dozen dells at the old command center don't do this either.

    I would say some, not usually.

    Dell Precision T3400 with NVS 290 and add an Nvidia NVS 440, they are both low power so the 375W power supply model should be more than enough. If you call them I assume they can install the 440 if you prefer. You will be able to power six 1920x1200 displays.

    Personally, I recommend you get 11 of those shits. Fuck a desk. Just mount them horizontally so you can look down at them. Or in your case mount them on the floor, under the desk, so that you can do your job and do your job at the same time.
