You can add 1 ATI radeon that has DUAL heads. This will allow dual monitors.

Just add more PCI or ISA graphic cards to the spare slots on your PC.

Or you add two PCI  video cards with one head.

Basically, you just need the heads, from PCI cards and, if available, an AGP card.  Just add either 2 1 headed cards or 1 two head card.  Doesn't have to be ATI.  I use a PCI single head "Pine" brand with a SIS chipset and a 2 head ATI AGP card.

anything can cause conflicts thats for sure... the only way to tell is to try it out. Explain your situation to the vendor and ask them if it doesn't work can you replace/exchange the hardware... goto bestbuy or futureshop, they have a no questions asked return policy.

Six monitors is done regularly on our trading floor, so yes, it can be done.  They use multiple Appian graphics cards on Win2K.

More cards is not only costly but also resource intensive, have you consider a monitor replicator, its a nice little box that you plug into your computer and depend on which one you get you can have anywhere from 2 to 16 monitors from the one vga port, fun ey...Great for movies and games
