Keyboard/mouse took a ****, or my computer screwed up my dongle. Pretty sure something (static) is killing things in my USB port. Lost a 16gb thumb drive last week.

I think it's time for a new entertainment stand where I can get the computer off the floor.

I need to start looking into building a desktop, the video card will probably be one of the costliest components

Most likely. Mid-range cards are ~150-200

Mid range cards won't run 8 monitors.

Right now, no single card will run 8 monitors...

However, it doesn't take a lot of power to run 8 monitors, unless you're running intensive applications on all of them. I can slap an 8800gt in my system and run it at 999999999x999999999 all day long for productivity-type ****.

Should've said no mainstream card.

And I would never buy anything that wasn't mainstream if it was something like that.

Edit: Matrox's graphics cards only seem to support 2-4 monitors. They have boxes that will take a big image and send different parts to different monitors. That's totally different and it doesn't render video... Nor is it a graphics card.

I need to find the model number but matrox makes one that is suited for running the incoming, out going flight times at airports.

None of their hardware would do well with very graphically-intensive stuff... It's not made for that.

No gaming, encoding, modelling of any sort?

You don't need 8 monitors for excel and word

Modelling gets pretty heavy on the GPU.

Buy something larger than a 15" and you won't need 8.
