Default Help finding a graphics card

I just ran across this post on a different forum:

Quote:
the best for me will be sth like hd 5450 with 4x miniDP
then I can do 4+2+4 setup and Can use 5970 for main gpu
so, does such a card exist? It sure would be useful for softth experiments.

Google did not turn up anything relevant, it kept giving me e5450 stuff.

There's no such thing as a HD5450 with more than one DisplayPort.

Well, he implied that he had found one.

And he had pictures of him running dirt2 on seven monitors. If powercolor can adapt a 5770 to have 5 displayports, I see no reason that they could not do a 5450. It would be awesome for professionals with lots of monitors.

I would suggest asking him directly then. He was probably just saying it would be cool if they made a 5450 with 4x miniDP.

Just sent him a pm. It will be very interesting if someone actually makes this.

External gpus do not really help me since I want to span four monitors from one card, but that firepro looks promising. Too bad it's a firepro. No way it'll sell below $200.
