So at least on Solaris, BaseMosaic seems to work with NVS450
so chances are good it working for Linux, too. However, hopefully
not with the problems as detailed in the link.

Hi Bernhard,

thanks for your detailed answers. They made me investigate the market for Nvidia
cards again. With BaseMosaic there are several interesting options for my use
case. I need/want DVI-D (Dual Link) which effectively rules out DisplayPort
since I'd need an (quite) expensive active converter for this. What's more I
want a passively cooled card to keep the noise level down.

Currently I am looking at a PNY QuadroFX 380, GeForce 9500 GT, 256MB GDDR3, 2x
DVI (VCQFX380-PCIE-PB) which is actively cooled though. However, it takes only
34W at max so i might exchange the active cooler with a passive one.

I'll try that as soon as time permits and report back here.

Regards,

Jochen
