I looked everywhere for a 4-head AGP card at a recent trade show;
as you say, all of them seem to be PCI.  The only chink in the
armour is the Matrox Parhelia, with three outputs, on AGP.

If there's a knowledgeable AG source on the net, please point me in that 

It's been a while since I've seen recommendations for multi-head cards on 
this list, and I'm in the market for a quad AGP card that will allow me to 
do separate resolution and true multi-monitor.  I've been trolling through 
the Matrox, Nvidia, ATI and others, but nothing's struck my eye at this 
point - perhaps I've missed it.

Does such an animal exist?  I've got a Nvidia 400 NVS, and a Matrox G200 
MMS, both of which are PCI.  But these seem to be harder to come by as time 
goes on.
