My machine has the following specs.
- Intel S1200 Core i9 10900KF 3.70GHz 10 Core CPU
- ASUS S1200 ATX PROART Z490-CREATOR 10G DDR4 Motherboard
- 16GB DDR4 (2x8G) G.Skill 3000Mhz Ripjaws V RAM
- 1TB Samsung 970 PRO M.2 (2280) PCIe SSD
- Gigabyte GTX1660Ti 6GB PCIe Video Card
- 850 Watt Thermaltake Toughpower GF1 GOLD Fully Modular Power Supply

My issue is I need to be able to run more then four monitors for my setup so I can make use of both Full Screen displays in vMix but the card is limited to four. Is my best option to add anther graphics card to my build and dedicating one to vMix and the other to the PC so I could effectively run eight displays?

Thanks in advance,

Multiple graphics cards in a single system is frowned upon with vMix. There's a few posts over the years on this subject.

Utilizing the 4 outputs and 2 fullscreen outputs in (4K and Pro versions), that really leaves you with a ceiling of 6 outputs in that respect. Obviously, the 2 fullscreen outputs utilize your existing graphics card outputs. Getting the 4 other outputs out somewhere is where it gets a little entertaining.

You could use the external outputs by way of something like a Decklink Duo card, but that will only cover 2 of the 4 outputs at most. You could enable NDI on those outputs, but then you need another system to take those in and output to more monitors or get several NDI to HDMI or SDI converters.
