This hasn't got past the testing phase yet, but we've got a twin GeForce 6600
PCIe machine running four outputs and it works nicely (currently under
Fedora Core 4).  We're using a relatively cheap motherboard that gives us two
8x PCIe connections for the cards, which should be oodles of bandwidth.  If
you've got more money lying around (and don't need PCI slots) then there's a
few NforcePro based boards that support two 16x slots (and dual processor).
