run 6 monitors
Hi peeps hope your evening is going well I have a gtx 660 time is it possible if I buy one more that I could run 6 screens like you do with 3 with nvidia surround

For gaming? No. Nvidia's maximum screens for a surround config is 4. If you are looking for multiple screens for office/trading use, it's possible, but I think you'd have to go to a Quadro card to drive a 6 screen configuration.

Tnx sugerj I want it for running moves not games would it be possible to run the six and have the video go over all six

you can do 6 DP monitors with certain 5K/6K series ATI cards?

EDIT: saw the OP's second post...not sure if that will even work with ATI cards.

As stated, AMD does have some 6 port mini-DP cards on the market. I'm not sure if you could run a movie across all 6 or not. To be perfectly honest, I think your money would be better spent on a 1080p projector and screen rather than buy 6 $200 monitors.

I see what you mean with projector but I'm not a fan of them I'm running 3 screens with my MSI GTX 660 TI I mite buy one more and try it with out SLI and see if it's possible if not it's not money wasted as I can run them SLI on my 3 screens

My asus 7970 DCII will support 6 monitors, 4 DP and 2 DVI... a little pricey for movies though.

You might want to look into some Matrox cards, I know they can output to a lot of displays, just can't do anything graphically intensive like gaming.

They may however be pricer then what's out there. You could be able to find a used 5870 6 monitor edition card if you can get lucky.
