if you have an SLI rig and you have 2 monitors and in both you have 3d would the card split between the 2 screens like 1 gets a screen and the other another screen or they still split in the horizonatal way as usual

I believe that it is still that one card does the top of each screen and the other does the bottom.

Also I read somewhere that SLI could theoretically support 4 monitors.

Normal SLI splits one monitor in half. So if you displayed each half on separate monitors you would have some extreme stretchage going on.

EDIT: That is assuming that you use a standard resolution.

Yep that is how it goes. I think merlin they would still split horizontally but I could be wrong.
