Multihead Video Card Recomendatios - XP

Last Modified: 2013-11-08
I am looking for recommendations on a multihead video card card for a new Dell Optiplex system that will be running XP initially, then eventually will be moving to Windows 7.  

We are in the process of purchasing a Dell Optiplex system (still researching which model) that will be used to run multiple displays.   The displays will include browser windows, Google Earth and some other apps.  At a minimum we want to run 4 displays and possibly  6 in the future.  The displays will include 42 inch tvs with HDMI and super vga connectors and may also include standard LCD displays.

This will be a kind of situation awareness system.

I guess there are a few ways to go, a video card with multiple connectors or possibly multiple cards with dual connectors.

Any recommendations would be appreciated.
