Thanks a bunch! That's definitely cheaper than buying four GPUs

Hi again, would you suggest using two Nvidia GTX 650's instead of the Firepro? It seems to be cheaper by a bit, and the 650's seem to be able to support 3 monitors, although I'm not sure if they add up

The Firepro cards are made for the kind of work you are doing. But, if you want to SLI 2 GTX650s, then the motherboard I show is a good option for it.
