NVIDIA
HP WS460C G8 with Grid K1 and vmware
Does anyone know if there id a firmware/driver combination for this box that will allow me to passthrough (vDGA) a GPU that will support multiple displays (ideally 4). At present the GPU only appears to support a single display and my other displays are still using the VMware 3D driver.

Where did you get the cards from and when? Any card produced after Nov 2013 will have the VBIOS to support multiple displays. However, be aware that VMware only supports dual displays for vDGA in the current release.
