I'm trying to run 3 - 4 monitors (unfortunately I don't think that eyefinity will work since I'm using two in portrait and two in landscape) and looking for the best solution for a project studio build I'm finishing up.
I usually use passive cards when building a DAW, but I'm not sure that I can find a decent card passive card that doesn't take up more than two slots (and most of the measurements I see from the manufacturer are for the card, not the card and the heatsink).
I'd love to toss in a 6850, but not only is it probably overkill, the passive versions are simply too large to use two of them in a single case.
My google-fu must be weak this week as I've been unable to find the real world dimensions on a passive card (i.e., includes the heatsink in the measurements) that wasn't 2 years out of date.
Any suggestions would be welcome. If passive is an impossibility, that's okay (but it is definitely preferred).
