I belive it is possible. Basically i want a multiseat setup where atleast 5 monitor and basic peripherals like mouse and keyboard will be connected to one cpu. User can use simultanously 5 monitor to work with. How is that done? what configuration is suitable to run it for a small web development farm? budget around $1k. can extend if needed for performance.

Graphic cards have multiple outputs

Its a matter of selecting monitors with the right connectors .
AMD cards have DVI /HDMI and Display port connectors . Your monitors would need to have that range of connectors

@man of chalk

No that budget is without monitors

pproximate Purchase Date: e.g.: Depends

Budget Range: $1k-1.5k

System Usage from Most to Least Important: (e.g.: Folding@Home, gaming, surfing the internet, watching movies)
Mostly for used in web development/software development. with multiseat setup to use 1 cpu with 5+monitor/peripheral

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: None

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts:

Location: City, State/Region, Country - india

Parts Preferences: No issue till performance and power consumption is not compromised

Overclocking: Maybe if needed incase

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe if needed incase

Your Monitor Resolution:Max to 1920x1080

Additional Comments: It is a set up for small web development firm. which can handle 5 multiseat gracefully. XAMPP,WAMPP,LAMP,PHP,MYSQL (other dtabase),SVN,Photoshop,Browsers,Editors,Netbeans (other IDE) etc.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: (e.g. I'm having trouble running game X or my PSU broke)

Sorry about the delay.

Ok, so you want a computer that can handle multiple screens at once for software coding and Photoshop purposes (in a nutshell).
Also how do you mean multi-seat? Because if you mean that multiple people can interact with it at once, you will need multiple computers. As far as I know there isn't a way to create multiple OS environments and have them correspond to a particular set of keyboard/mouse inputs.

Also whats the budget in Rupees? Just that chances are if I recommend something off Newegg it wont be available or the combination of parts will be too expensive in India.

No issues. really appriciate your helps.

by multiseat i meant this

flipkart is overpriced than our local markets.You can refer to newegg. incase of unavailablity or excess price i would find an alternative. I need just some idea of components. just so you asked the budget in rupees is 70k-80k.
