Multi Monitor Thin Client Solutions

I've been asked to find a thin client that is capable of running 3 displays so our users can take advantage of Server 08's multimon capabilities.  Judging from the research I've done so far I'm not actually seeing any that are capable of running more than 2 displays?  Anyone running more than 2 displays with their current thin client setup?

I guess my ultimate goal is extended destop over 3 monitors to run RDP in a multimon configuration that snaps to each individual monitor.

Two is the max I have ever seen.  Like the Wyse V10L.  It has 2 DVI and 1 VGA but only 2 are live at any time.  Sorry.

I've found the newer WYSE thinclients and 2 particular models of HP thin clients have a PCI slot that you can buy a PCI riser card to add on a ATI Fire MV 2250 PCI video card.  This setup will allow up to 4 displays with the use of a DMS-59 cable attached to the ATI card.  We just ordered one of the HP models so we'll see how it goes.  Kind of defeats the purpose of buying a thin client when you end up paying a grand, but the added security is what we were looking for.  Thanks for the suggestions.

I have looked in to the Matrox solution for laptops before and the boss wasn't really fond of an external add on so I knew that would not be an option for me.

WYSE R90 series and the HP GT77 series have the PICe expansion slots at this time.
