multiple monitor display

Hi!

I am looking for a video card with the following features:
- the video card can serve 4 monitors (1920x1080) simultaniously
- 2 or 3 such video cards should be used simultaniously in one PC so that the total display consists of 8 or 12 monitors
- only a simple slide show will be dispalyed on each monitor. No 3D, no gaming. Thus the graphic power of the video card can be low.
- passive cooling would be an advantage.
- price should be low as possible.

Does anybody can recommend such video cards?

Does anybody has any experience which such a setup?

Thank you!

Thank you for your replies.

What I want to have in the end is one desktop consisting of 8 monitors (1920*4 x 1080*2 = 7680 x 2160 pixels) or 12 monitors (1920*4 x 1080*3 = 7680 x 3240 pixels).

Is it possible to use 2 or 3 graphic boards with 4 monitors each in one PC simultaniously so that I get one huge desktop?

You should be able to do so with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814162083.  The card supports quad displays at 1080p.  With this, provided you have enough room in the case, you should be able to use three of them to achieve 12 monitors, or two of them for 8.

I guess the video card you advised will not be of use as it doesnt support SLI.  SergeG: will not be able to use 3cars on one PC. I thick only one card can be used on 1 PC.

Instead he can go with the below vdo card and install 3 of these in a PC (they support crossfireX):

The non-SLI cards should work as well.  The only thing that SLI/Crossfire does is allow you to combine the power of both cards to your display(s), mainly for gaming purposes.  I have run multiple non-sli cards in computers to be able to run multiple monitors.

If you want to drive 12 displays, get two Radeon 5870 Eyefinity 6 http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/graphics/ati-radeon-hd-5000/hd-5870-eyefinity-6-edition/Pages/overview.aspx
You will need to use mini display ports to drive each monitor.

The problem with three cards is that there are few, if any, motherboards which support three PCIe x16 cards.
