[AG-TECH] AG on >10 displays

I'm doing it both ways: multiple display machines and I do have one with
video cards on two different busses (at least I think so) one triple head
PCI-X and one Quad on PCIe...

I've found that if the card has 256Mb Ram on it (video card) it does OK. One
of the quad cards is a PCIe 1X card and does fine. But I haven't gone past 7
displays this way (on a single machine).
