Default 4 Monitors?

i want to have my windows desktop stretched across 4 LCD monitors like you normally do with a dual head video card. Can i do this with 2 PCI or with 1 AGP and 1 PCI video card just using windows' built in display properties?

I don't think it will work unless you have 2x pci-e cards. And an sli mobo of course, so you can connect both of the cards

actually in sli mode you can only have 1 monitor.

you could have four if you didn't use the sli bridge to connect them together. chances are if he's asking about pci and agp he does have one, so whats the point of saying that. if you want to have 4 with 2 video cards both cards need to have 2 outputs. but yes, you can use an agp and pci, go to google and search for setting up dual monitors and you'll be able to find a bunch of stuff about it. i haven't done it personally, but i have seen my friends do stuff like that.
