Rahter useless for home users.  Who needs more than 2 or 3 displays?  This is better suited for stage events like concerts, and sports events.

Unless you want a surround view setup which will require more monitors. A friend of mine has a setup with 9 LCD's for gaming with surround view.

Well, if it can't run Crysis...

Can it run Quake III?

I'd love to see a market resurgence of Matrox cards for gaming.  They were always decent, but never quite bar-raising.  They had some good ideas (the Parhelia) and some poorly executed ones (the Parhelia), and a 3-way battle for market share was always good for consumers.  Sadly, they made themselves largely redundant to home users.  Hopefully this is a sign of their return to a position of competent competition.

 Can it play Crysis?

No joke. Crysis (and all games really) are optimized for ATI/Nvidia so can a "3rd party" (in every sense of the word) even run games?

Try watching something like Planet Earth in that kind of resolution. The closest comparable thing that can actually run Crysis is probably the Eyefinity setup (but that is only 6 monitors compared to 16).

doesn't Eyefinity work with xfire? so we can use 24 monitors and play Crysis if we are willing to shell out ~$2500 on video cards

It took me a couple re-reads, but when you said "xfire" I thought you were referencing the IM client. Everyone else here probably understood what you said, but to avoid the confusion I would have spelled out the whole thing.
