Bringing this thread back on topic..
Put your AGP on your best monitor and make it your primary
Then you need 3-4 PCI video cards depending on how many monitors you wanna run..
I reccomend ATI as I find they're the least bitchy about running multi monitor
You should be able to pick up XPERT128 or lower model Radeon's in PCI format
Ideally try and get all your PCI's the same so you're only running 2 different video drivers..

Found a way to do it.. thanks to kenny's help:)



Display the same image on up to 8 monitors simultaneously

The StarTech.com VideoView is a 8 port VGA Video Splitter that allows a PC to display to as many as 8 monitors simultaneously. It is perfect for classrooms, tradeshows, or in-store displays where high quality video on several monitors is needed. The VideoView supports monitors with up to 200MHz of bandwidth allowing it to display images of up to 1600 x 1200 pixels. A built-in booster circuit allows the video signal to be extended up to 200 ft.

I didn't understand the question I guess.. I thought you wanted to run your desktop across 5-6 monitors or some shit, not display the exact same image.
