The biggest problem is finding a way to have hardware accelleration on all 4 
monitors. There are a few quad monitor cards that can do that, but they are 
expensive and they may need a commercial X-server. 
You might be able to use two PCIe cards and configure those. Also expensive if 
you have to buy a new motherboard with dual pci-express slots. 
And I don't know if it will work :)

It is probably easier  to get 2 cheap dualhead cards in two cheap pc's and use 
OSC or netsend to connect the two.
Although finding dualhead cards that will do openGL on both heads is maybe not 
so easy after all.
