I have a question regarding new ATI 5 series. I heard that there will be a special version of 5 series that supports up to 6 displays. What about a regular 5 series? I see a regular 5 series have 2 DVI + 1 HDMI + 1 DISPLAY PORT. Can I connect 4 displays at once?

The regular series can only handle up to 3 screens

you can run up to 6 according to this. Obviously you can run 2 cards in crossfire to allow up to 6 displays.

You can connect up to 5 displays if you will buy MST (Multi Stream Transport) Hub and connect it to display port. It is not cheap (about 150$).

Like this: http://www.club-3d.com/index.php/products/reader.en/product/mst-hub-1-3.html or this: http://www.accellcables.com/K088B-003B.html

Don't forget to check your display port version on video card.
