I am looking to upgrade my existing system to go to 4 monitors and am looking for the right nvidia graphics card (I want to stick to nvidia). I was looking at the GT 640 but looking at the picture I can only see 3 outputs.
Has anyone got any recommendations? I don't do any gaming and it's mostly for browsing/emails. Resolution wise I use 1680x1050 on my current 2 22" dell monitors which I am looking to replace with 4x24" (Brand not decided yet).
Actually it was the other way around AMD had horrible driver support for Linux for the longest time look at open GL standards. All Nvidia cards 650ti and up support 4 monitors and AMD and Nvidia both have about the same performance for multi monitor displays.
There is enough slots but not enough space to fit a larger card. I could however sacrifice my sound card.
I ended up asking one of my staff who runs a similar setup at home and he's basically said not alot has changed since I last checked this in 2010. The expensive tripple/quad head cards are a waste as you loose compositing so 2 cheaper dual head cards is a better route to take as you still end up using xinerama. It also seems to still hold true that the nvidia offering is still superior to the AMD/ATI offering when it comes to drivers and especially in the dual+ display setups.
