Get an SLI maonboard board and two nvidia graphics cards. That's 4 monitors 
right there. Then grab yourself a PCI board for the other two outputs... 
That's what I did here - works great with the closed source nvidia drivers. 
We tried with the open source Nvidia drivers and ATI cards - all fell short 
in one way or another.
