We're doing some remodeling in some of our offices here and apart of it, one of the conference rooms will receive 4 lcd tv's and the goal is to run them via a PC to display company data.
So, I've designed a PC at newegg - i7, 8gb ram, etc... going with a Radeon 4670 with quad DVI out
Wanting to see what I want to show on the 4 tv's on the wall, before putting the data up on the wall, I've opted for a 2nd video card, Radeon 5450, that I'll connect to a monitor on the desk. That'll be the primary monitor, and they can drag the data windows up to the TV's and everyone will be happy.
My concern before i check out is, I've chosen a Asus P7P55D-E - and although it has 2 pci express 2.0 slots, the speck says if both are used, they run at 8x each (not 16x)
Does this work? can a 16x card work as a 8x card? Should i look for a motherboard that can do 2 pci express 2 slots, both at 16x each?
No gaming on this box - excel sheets, pdf's, iSeries Access, etc... max video usage will be power point presentations.
