If your aiming to get 6 projectors as one big screen.
Your going to need at least a 3 video card motherboard.

So far to my knowledge.
Either SLI or Crossfire.

its 2 monitors per card.
if the projectors have a VGA, DVI, HDMI connection you can do 2 per card.

6 projectors playing the same thing, go for the simpliest option:

6 port VGA switchbox. 1 line in (from PC) 6 lines out. Belkin Omniview sounds like it would suit your needs:

8 port

or Belkin ExpandView:

4 port
http://www.belkin.co...oduct_Id=146894

8 port
http://www.belkin.co...oduct_Id=146901

It may (or may not) work out cheaper than buying 3 graphics cards (3 PCI-E[presummably] port motherboard + 3 dual port cards + new PSU ~$500[?])

Used to use it in the PC shop i worked at to show off the range of monitors using a single source (we had 3 of these daisy-chained

Enjoy :)

Again a single card supporting Eyefinity would kick! I'm pretty sure you can set all the monitors to clone no worries. :)

But I'm just a hardware geek and I love native solutions like that. The 8 port VGA switchbox would likely also do the trick.
