It is often said that you are restricted to ATI for multiple monitor setups. Why is this? There are Nvidia cards with enough video RAM to support multiple monitors.

So Nvidia could do 2-3 monitors just as good as ATI then?

Nowadays yes. With several cards shipping with 3xdvi ports as well, it often times is even easier to connect 3 monitors using Nvidia than AMD since you have to fuss around with active display port adapters (assuming you don't have display port monitors).

Yeah I was thinking about media centers today and how well a card hooked up to a TV and monitor would fare for movies and such. Thus I got curious about why everyone says you are limited to ATI for multiple monitor setups and decided to ask the question. Thanks for the replies.
