5 Monitors Displayed from a Single Computer

We are setting up a small training room. Instead of using a projector, we want to have five monitors (one on each table and one at the compiuter up front) to display from the single computer. We are looking at a desktop computer from Dell with an integrated video card for the local monitor, and a separate Quad video card installed in a PCI slot for the other four.

The question is, are there devices that would allow us to plug in a single video cable from the computer for input, that would then push the display our to four or more monitors? (Like a switch for monitors)

This would allow us to bring in any desktop or laptop (which is what we really want to use) computer when we do training sessions, which will only occur from time to time.

Any other ideas would be welcome.

Do you want the same image on each screen or different images on each screen?

If the same image on multiple screens, then have a look at a device like this:
