I was told if I had the same graphics drivrs such as Nvidia which I do, I might be able to use my onboard graphics for two monitors in conjuction with my pci card for two more monitors to achieve a four monitor setup. Does anybody know if this is possible? I cant see in any settings how I would go about this?

I don't think so... Never heard of 2 graphics cards running 2 monitors each.

If its a recent board you should be able to have a PCI card also out putting. Older boards tended to disable the onboard GPU when a card was installed. What I'm not sure you can do is have the onboard output two displays. I think they are limited to one at a time.
