higher non-mobile NVS cards.

I think this refers to "G80 based *NVS* cards" such as the NVS 290,
but not to consumer G80 cards.
Hm, then i must've overread the "implies NVS cards" part.

So 4xx NVS might be an alternative to video splitter such as the
TH2G - but again this is just another prove that the limitation of
SLI Mosaic to Quadro is just a marketing issue. Dare you have
more then two LCDs without purchasing a bunch of Quadros or
at least an NVS! :-)

Well, if it would work with a quad NVS, I'd think about buying one. On the other hand i'm getting pretty tired of this. Last time I tried the open source ATI drivers they also did not work properly. What's more a proper replacement for Xinerama isn't in sight either. Maybe I should just forget about tripple monitor aweness and get a Mac or so (oh no, I said it..).

Best wishes,
