It seems that I can easily find video cards that has 4 outputs but they are usually 2 hdmi and 2 dvi or something like that.

I'm wanting a video card that has 4 hdmi outputs.  If the answer is that they don't exist then I'd like for someone to explain why.

Please post links or model #'s of the video cards.

thx,
chad

Everything I read is there is no such thing.

Is probably as close as you will get and use 2 DVI to HDMI adapters.  The sound would only pass through one HDMI from the dual port cards I am reading as well if that is your reason for quad HDMI ports.

I am wanting to use this card for my office.  I'll have four monitors.  My computer's motherboard only has one slot available to use for the video card (that is, there are currently no slots available so I'd be replacing my current video card with a quad output).

ok, sounds like good answers and you gave me the cards that would suit my needs.  If anyone wants to list some less expensive cards that'd be cool... this is not for a gamer system so the specs don't have to be great.

Also, found this regarding DisplayPort: http://www.displayport.org/consumer/?q=content/displayport-makes-high-performance-standard

Apparently it's better and more versatile than hdmi...
