Default 6 Headed Performance Video

Hi guys,

I am looking to purchase a video card set/system which will allow the following:

* Output to 6 LCD displays via DVI
* All 6 outputs need to have OpenGL support
* All 6 displays must be able to span across to display a single display AND also be able to act as 6 seperate independent displays

My company develops high end 3-D & graphics intense modeling and analysis software, and these need to be powerful video cards. At least a 6600GT chipset or higher.

We do not have a computer for this yet, and are open to building a custom system or purchasing a pre-built unit.

Any help/advice would be most appreciated! Thanks!

I dont think there is a card out that supports 3 monitors let alone 6. Your only choice is SLI, with that you can handle 4 monitors. Or you can get a motherboard with 3-4 PCI-e ports and fill them up with cards. For memory the cards will not run in SLI but you can use them to hook up monitors to.

why not just buy an LCD TV and hook it up to your computer, or even 2...?

the gigabyte mobo which has quad pcie-16 slots, then you can put 4 video cards in so 4*2 is 8 outputs :shocked:



3 pcie-16 slots then you can buy a 6800GT


or a 7800GTX
