[rescue] Looking for 4 head AGP card (PeeCee)

By my calculations that's all coming up to ~250MB/sec. I have no clue
what the top speed of PCI is. But I think PCIe should handle it. AGP
should be able to as well (at least 8x).

I've thought about getting one of those matrox boxes and turning my
dual 22" desktop into triple 22" (it'd rock for gaming). But I haven't
had the spare cash yet.

But yeah, I'd say dual matrox boxes on a dual head GF6600 should work
fine. If you use NVIDIA you can use TwinView. And that'll allow you to
actually show all 4 displays as one X desktop (TwinView does in
software what the matrox box does in hardware).
