Hi Oshirowanen,

I suggest you, that you use Xinerama which have perfect options to attach two monitors in one graphic card. You will have to configure it which monitors to connect to which graphic card. E.g. first and second psyhic monitor to first card and third and fourth to second graphic card.

I work with similar configuration at job.

I hope, that this helps you on some way and please it it, mark it as solved.
