I am looking for a motherboard that I can use two PCI -Express video cards in to connect 4 monitors.
Not sure if this is possible or not.
I've seen a lot of boards with two PCI-Express slots but most say you need to use SLi or Crossfire and it only allows one or two monitors.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated

No, you want one of those SLI/CF motherboards. Put your two video cards in, and don't enable SLI/CF. Depending on the board, the second slot might be limited to PCIe 1X bandwith, but newer boards should provide a full 16x. Pick a board you like, then read the manual, it should say something about this.

If I had another PCIe video card, I would check on my CF board for you. Perhaps ask a local shop if they can check this for you.
