[AG-TECH] AG on >10 displays

Actually, if you use 2 of the Nvidia NVS 440 PCIe x1 quad cards with 8 TripleHead2Go's, you'd get 8 * 3 = 24 displays on one computer.  And it works on both Windows and Macs, not sure about Linux...  I've connected 2 of the TripleHead2Go's on a PC and it worked fine, so I expect it should work with 8 of them as well...

How about a PC that has 2 PCI-e x 16 slots filled with high-end PCI-e x 16
video cards, each with 2 x dual-link DVI. Then use 4 TripleHead2Go devices
to give a total of 12 displays, see following for info on TripleHead2Go:

I haven't tried it myself, but it would be interesting to see something like
that running.
