4 monitors at 2560x1600!?

Considering all the monitors I've seen at that resolution are +30', I don't see how you could fit all of those on a single Desktop. I have two 24' monitors on my desk now, and they take up quite a bit of space. It seems like the space you'd save on the PC form factor would be quickly lost by using 4 monitors.

Got a friend who used to work at a big finance company. Heard almost everyone at his place has 4-8 monitors on their desks, so I guess it's possible =P

Yup, I'm at work right now with 5 21" monitors in my face! I wish we'd have $ for the big 30" screens.

Usually cards like these go for couple of hundred bucks more!
I wonder how they'll perform in gaming environments; and how much they improve CAD / 2D drawings compared to a good modern to date- 3D card like a radeon 4870 card or so..?
 
ummmmmmm is it just me or this is some half assed dual low end card? 2x64 bit memory channels, 256mb per GPU, and with a cooler like that it cant be too powerful etc (not to sound like thats important etc)

i cant see a proper workstation in a slim line case either, this is just a no no for high end systems etc usually (raid setups, lots of cores, ram etc)

then again its not really my specialty....

It says 16 processor cores, but I wonder if that's total or per card. Nvidia 9400 has 16 "cores" so it's probably close to a 9400, or if each has 16 cores it's 2 9400's in SLI. Which would still be kinda slow I think.
