Multiple monitors - how many are supported?

    Question

  • I am planning to use more than 16 monitors on a Windows 7 installation. What is the maximum limit of Monitors that Windows 7 can manage on one desktop?
    Does anyone know if this Graphics card is supported in Windows 7? "NVIDIA Quadro NVS 450 x16 for DV "

    I seem to recall having read that 64 monitors are supported, but I can not find that information again....

    Hi

    I'm not sure if there is a maximum limit for displays? I have personally seen a system that had 24 displays attached, but I'm not sure what the specs were on the system, except that it had Windows XP installed.

    There is a limit of 10 displays, but this is only a limit of the Display Properties Applet in the Control Panel. If you attach more than 10 monitors, you would also need a custom display properties applet that is capable of configuring the extra monitors.

    I think the maximum number of monitors depends more on the graphic cards. The nVidia Quadro NVS 450 only has ports to attach 4 displays, so you would need at least 4 of those cards to attach 16 monitors, which would mean that you would also need 4 PCI Express x16 connector slots on the system board or some type of external graphics board connectors.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank You for testing Windows 7
