The layout of all four monitors could be easily re-arranged via the GUI of the nvidia-settings program. The display configuration is very easy to adjust using the NVIDIA Settings program and allows sharing an existing X screen or using a separate X.Org Server. The NVIDIA program makes it easy to adjust the resolution, orientation, reflection, under-scan, and overall position for the displays. The NVIDIA driver also allows the naming of the primary display.

As with single-head systems, the NVIDIA Settings also shows per-display information such as for the signal, connection link, refresh rate, the ability to download the monitor's EDID data, color controls, dithering controls, digital vibrance, and color correction. Running nvidia-settings basically has everything you need to fully configure all of your displays and it can be done via an intuitive UI without having to manually edit text files, run CLI programs, etc.

While NVIDIA's binary driver tools have everything you need to configure your displays fully, the NVIDIA driver is now fully compliant with the X.Org RandR 1.3 extension too. So you can configure your displays using the command-line xrandr if you wish or use any of the other open-source programs written for the open-source graphics drivers written for the X Resize and Rotate extension.
