Assuming you get 2 x 2 ports pci-e vga cards, why shouldn't it ?

Should work fine, but it will use Windows built in multi monitor software
and not the video cards multi monitor support, also it wont work in SLI with
4 monitors, assuming you wanted this? But as of yet FS2004 has no benefit
with SLI and may even perform worse.

Since current SLI tech seems far from prime time and we *might* have a new
version of FS in a year or so ... I'd be inclined to wait.

Bottom line is, you could plug in 2 x Nvidea or 2 x ATI cards or even 1 x
ATI and 1 x Nvidia (dual vid output) PCI-E card for a 4 monitor solution in
non SLI mode.
