    I'm pretty sure the Flex series is available in Australia, and I'd highly recommend one from personal experience. Just check some of the local stores and online retailers available to you and see if they stock the cards. There are also some Asus cards that support up to six monitors, such as the HD 7970 DirectCU II.

    Go with the asus if he can afford it, the direct cu cooling design is really nice. But keep in mind that ideally the monitors for the wall have native Display port support, otherwise ( hdmi / dvi ) ull need 4 adapters to get them running.

    Be sure to post impressions of the card. It's one hell of a bit of kit.

    Its still going to be demanding for one card so the 7970 should have enough grunt.
    And i still need to buy this from 1 of 6 aus stores that dont stock any of those cards or the Firepro card i wanted to start with.Thanks for the reply tho :).

    by the way, remember to get a display calibration kit such as spyder4, as even it is the same model the color/brightness may have a little bit different across them

    I didn't catch what resolution you're about to use on the monitors. With 7970 DCII you have to set 2nd DVI port to single link mode (1920x1080 max) which enables the 4th DP port and the other DVI is always single link only. So at the end you would be using 4x DP + 2x SL-DVI.

    Also reminder that if you end up using less monitors and want to use DL-DVI port prepare for possible compatibility problem with 27" 2560x1440 and 30" 2560x1600 monitors. They tend to show green flashing pixels. The DL-DVI port is 'weak' in that one which is why I had to swap my card.

    Software wise ure pretty much covered with amd ccc atleast to start, u can either configure the displays to work as one huge single display ( eyefinity ) or u can use them individually and split them in grids etc with the hydragrid manager which is again included in the amd driver software.
