You'll need 2 GPU's for that.

the first link is broken

the second link, i have no idea what that is even for.

To connect 4 monitors to a PC you need 2 graphic cards. Simple as that.

Actually i'm pretty sure you just need multiple video cards. Many motherboards have multiple video card slots without actually supporting SLI or Crossfire.
