Appreciate your writeup on the T740. Would you be able to recommend the part # that they say can be added to the T740 so you can increase the output to 6 monitors. Have been doing some research and not having any luck. I found this in the specs ---Optional AMD Radeon E9173 PCI Express graphics card provides support for an additional 2 displays, bringing the system support total to six displays at up to UHD/4K (3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz) resolution.

It’s the Symmetry 100-438279 - usually not sold standalone at a reasonable price (quoted at 280) - it’s honestly not even that good of a card to be worth the ask - it’s based on the GCN4/Alexa while the Radeon Vegas in the Raven Ridges are GCN5 based, but any 1 slot GT1030 that fits in the chassis will work just fine.
You could also raid the Wyse 5070 extended chassis just for the card - they also use the same one on their quad display models. At least you can sell the thin client on and reclaim some money.
