Id like to get four 23 monitors for my Mac Pro tower. I have two Apple cinema monitors now. My graphics card has two outputs (hdmi, mini dv) do I need another card?

Also what mount for four?

Im tired of absolute chaos with so many windows open. It is literally exhausting.

If you want four displays, you'll need 4 video outputs. If your card has 2 outputs, you'll need another card.

I have another Mac Pro tower with a big card in it. I need to see if I can fit two cards in there. I have some interface cards for external RAID taking up slots. I might move the storage to one machine, then install two cards. Im going to find an old Apple cinema monitor to match my other ones (that are going on 20 years old and work great.)

God these monitors are AWESOME!!! I won't get to enjoy their full benefit until I tear the office apart and put the new video cards in, but I have 4 in place on the first row of monitors so far and I was able to experience the 4k full resolution. Perfect size, and perfect readability. Brightness and contrast are very strong.

For now I'm going to be running a sub-optimal resolution on this row, otherwise it totally borks navigating around the desktop.

Monitors 7, 4, and 3 are the new ones, but at sub-optimal resolution. 1 is 4k and it's flipping stunning! It also illustrates how much more desktop space I get when this project is done.

Sure, you can drag and drop and rearrange your monitors in the control panel, but then you'd have to physically rearrange the monitors themselves to match where you'd dragged and dropped them. PITA, but I'm sure @UniqueDoug would come over and do it for the OP.

Aware of this fact....however, given how MANY monitors I have, and the distance from the tower, and the TYPE of cables (2 HDMI, 1 display port, and 1 older style DVI per video card), the length of cable plays a huge role on that. The older cables are only so long, so I'm forced to connect to monitors proximate to the tower. Additionally, not every monitor has the same connectors. It was a huge puzzle to get all 18 working as one perfect desktop.

Moving forward to the new setup, I should be able to overcome the OCD issue, because all 18 will use the same cable style and I have a TON of really long HDMI cables. The video cards only support mini hdmi, but come with adapters to the regular size. All monitors support 2 hdmi, 1 mini hdmi, and 1 display port. Considering the massive investment I have in just quality hdmi cables, I'll go that route, but If I have connectivity issues, I'll just go buy 18 15 foot mini hdmi cables and call it a day.
