I was responding to your statement:
"e.G. 2 NVIDIA PCIexpress have problems with the IRQ (and the lanes) and
don't run together (XP)"
Not suggesting a course of action.
You should be able to quite cheaply purchase a PCI card that matches your
AGP card chip manufacturer and add additional screens that way. Total cost
probably around $100, maybe less if you buy second hand/ebay.

Not true. I am a software developer for one of the largest IT companies in
the world, and no-one where I work uses dual monitors (mostly becuase the
company wouldn't fork out for the cost).
The fact still remains, probably 95%+ of the market only uses a single
screen. Of those that use more than 1 screen, probably 99%+ only use two
screens. So more than that is a vanishingly small market.
(BTW, I've been a dual screen user at home since Windows 98 was in beta)
