Running Four Monitors with SLI Video Cards

  1. I wonder if anybody is using this new type of video card to run four monitors for trading.
    I look at the SLI specs and see that you can tie two dual-port cards together (Nvidia for example) to make four video outputs. They sit in two PCIe X16 slots, connected together by a short connector.

    I consider this setup but the cost holds me back. I have to upgrade my motherboard to be SLI compartible, buy new memory and new CPU with new socket type.

    I wonder if this setup is anywhere faster than using a Matrox PCI quad card to justify for the upgrade cost.

    Any input is appreciated.
