I bought a Nvidia NVS 400 Quadro Video Card. Here: http://compeve.com/i...fcc7c4e2756b5f7

The card supports two (2) LFH-59 split-out cables. The LFH cables are dual DVI-I output (female). Here: http://compeve.com/i...fcc7c4e2756b5f7

I plan to buy four DVI-D input, LCD monitors. Will the male DVI-D (monitor cable) to female DVI-I (LFH splitout) work? And will the resolution be compromised, if at all? Thanks.

The difference between DVI-D and DVI-I is that DVI-I also supports analog for use with analog LCDs and CRT monitors. So you should not have any problems running digital LCD monitors.

However, you did not say what you will be using this setup for. Please understand that with only 64Mb of RAM, this card will only support 2D graphics with little animation - that is, no 3D animated games.
