Question 4 monitors 2 8800GTX's

ok my Engineering tech. class just bought a monitor stand and 4 acer 19" AL1916 displays for it as well... we also bought 2x 8800 GTX's for our monstrous computer we have in our lab. thing is we have the 2 cards SLI linked together and all but we want all 4 monitors to act as one huge monitor we kinda have that working to an extent but thats about it...can we want the desktop to be the whole entire thing instead of just one desktop on the top screens and one of the bottom we want it to be one huge desktop!!! if you can help us out it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Crazy_whitmore

You'll be lucky if you get all four going at once. Usually SLI disables all but one of the video ports.

You can do that with computers too. I know there's an option on the ATI drivers.

You don't have to run it in SLI mode.
