WOW, so 4 dual head cards is 8 monitor outs. Add 8 TripleHead2Go for
I wonder if that is even possible on one box? I sure would like to come see
that video wall if anyone ever tried it :-)
Anyways, I have had 2 PCI dual head cards (4 monitors total)in a G4 before
and all was well with OSx(x11).
Just my two cents

Multiple displays have been standard with Mac OS since Mac OS 7. I
had three displays on a PPC 8100 machine back in 1995. Doc is using a
XServe machine (good if you want a rack mount system, bad if you need
multiple video cards - only two slots) with the regular Aqua GUI. The
maximum number of displays currently possible on a Mac Pro is eight
(four NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT dual head cards, a build to order option
at the Apple Store).
