Some of the NVIDIA Quadro cards run a pair of Dual Head ports, but  
MAKE SURE you get the breakout cables as they are useless without  
them - the cards do not have DVI connectors on they are something  
very different with a lot more pins.

This; http://www.users-side.co.jp/common/VGA6031601.jpg

is a Quadro NVS440. Those 2 ports each take a splitter with 2 DVI  
ports on. It's PCIe though. AGP Quadro cards certainly exist though.

I think the higher end Quadro NVS cards and most newer Quadro FX  
cards are 4-port. I have seen them on eBay numerous times and been  
tempted. Would make a kick-ass card for a Linux workstation :)
