    Multimonitor is very hard to setup on nvidia cards using the proprietary driver, and you can only use 2 screens at the same time on nvidia.

      The GeForce 8400M GS works with the newest proprietary driver which fixes some bugs, and dual-head in TwinView (not tried Xinerama) works fast. Nouveau also works fine within its limits (if you use KDE + Nouveau 3D you may want the latest Git as that fixes an important bug). Even 2nd screen setup and autodetect (which the Linux blob lacks) work fine. My card is built-in in my laptop, but there are desktop cards named 8300, 8400 and 8500 based on the same NV86 chip.
