I want to put 4 monitors on my dell 4600

\015 I have a 4600 with windows xp and a dual video card with 2 monitors running now. I want to add 2 more, these are not for games but to speed up my work time by having several file visable at the same time. It this possible and what will it take to do it.Thansk, Bill\015

Answers :

If you have 2 video cards it is possible to do it you'll just need to make sure that both of the video cards you are using have 2 outputs
You need a video card capable of supporting four monitors. This is usually done with an SLI setup where the motherboard supports multiple video cards and each card supports two monitors instead of four, but the 4600 does not support SLI. Check out this link for a list of cards and methods that will work.
