I used to work for the company I'm now contracting to, and we used to get 4 outputs with a Matrox Triplehead2Go Digital. Those are a lot more expensive than a pair of graphics cards.

comment Intermittent, slow speeds on network with varying number of users online at any time
Yep. Get a LES from BT. Between 11 people, you could get the cost down to 60-80 quid a month each, and have 1/11th of 100Mbit, synchronous connection.
