  1. Don't know much about that many monitors, I know there's a HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition that can run 6 monitors.

    Going for a HD5970 to ensure that 6 monitors will be an option. I need to know one thing .. will I be able to run applications on diff screens like photoshop on one monitor, the tools on another and on 4 of the other screens I want to run Light Room or a Dia show, is this possible?
  3. I really don't know, maybe ask in here:

    Looks like a really dead forum .. :(
  5. I dunno, it seems you need to have display ports on your monitors or get adapters. From what I know a regular ATI 5xxx series with eyefinity can run 3 monitors so you'll need two of those.

    LE. You need 4 monitors running the same thing...that should be one card that can run 4 monitors and another one for the other two.
  6. The new ATI EyeFinity 6 supports up to 6 screens. I've also seen that you can have them working like I want to. So now it's just the config around the GFX, going to take obisidian's config and tweak it a bit.
  7. Get a six core for all those applications.
