I have an interesting challenge for the Superuser Elite. I'm setting up a 4 user LAN for an MMO in my basement. In addition to this, I'd like to mount a big screen LCD television on my wall for others to watch the action. I haven't purchased anything yet, and my budget is pretty flexible. I know I'll need a really powerful PC to act as the server, 4 PCs and 4 LCD monitors to run the game client (most likely the same model of each), some kind of router or hub to link the PCs to the server, a nice TV to connect the PC displays to, and maybe some nice surround sound to enhance the experience. The following concerns need to be addressed:
What kind of equipment will allow me to link the PC displays to the television? (I want a 2x2 grid showing on the tv)
Is there a way to isolate the sound and choose the audio of 1 of the 4 systems at any given time? (Not mandatory but would be nice if possible)
This is a special project I'm doing for my daughter, so she can have a little hangout for her and her friends. Any advice or suggestions are welcome.
