Your board supports AMD CrossFireX. If you get two modern AMD Radeon cards that support eyefinity, you can run 6 monitors. Or you can buy a single card that has 6 mini display ports.

You can install two GPUs, assuming they're PCI 3.0 x16 cards

Don't worry if plan A fails, there are 25 more letters in the alphabet ;)

Can I installs another type of graphic cards ?

Can I share connections between the integrated motherboard graphic card and the the graphic cards ?

Exist any other way to connect more displays ?

Best regards

If you merely wish to have the same display on all screens, you could use a splitter; or even (preferably) a distribution amplifier.

If you're planning on using Nvidia GPUs, you won't be able to use different GPUs together in SLI (You can use two different Nvidia cards if one is dedicated to rendering, and the other one is dedicated to PhysX, though there isn't much performance gain). If you want SLI the cards must be of the same model.

If you wanna use AMD cards together you are a bit more free to vary with the model of your GPUs as they utilize AMD's CrossFire technology.

I am not sure what you mean about "share connection" between your integrated graphics and GPU. But if you mean using it in the same way as with SLI or CrossFire, I doubt it's possible.

The amount of supported displays can be found in the GPU specifications.

Going for anything else than x16 PCI cards isn't worth it if you're going to play games.

Can I use usb display card or usb video cards ?
Allways to see the monitor in extended way , not for the same image in the displays....

In the Graphics Configuration of the BIOS put :

iGPU Multi-Monitor [Disabled]
This item allows you to empower both integrated and discrete graphics devices for the multi-monitor output. The CPU graphics shared system memory size is fixed at 64 MB. Configuration options : [disabled[enabled]

What is the purpose of this option in clear terms ?

Best Regards

A suitable DA (Distribution Amplifier - 7 outputs from one input) would be around £130.00 or so in the UK. Possibly less if overall quality isn't an issue; and possibly more if you wanted top notch/pro level displays. Quality of displays of course depends on the actual input signal/source into the DA.

As regards your current question (a learning curve for me too is this one), this discussion may help shed some light on it all:

I am only interested in monitor in extended way.

I assume that is not possible to share signal or monitor between the motherboard background graphical monitor connectors (HDMI, VGA, DVI) and those we get connections discreet graphics card devices on to the motherboard.

My conclusions with your help are :

The monitors are up to three using motherboard and integrated graphic card.
You can't use simultaneously any graphic addon with the integrated graphic card.
If we add a graphic addon like a discreet graphic card we obtain new outputs - but the outputs from the motherboard are nulled.
My mother board has capacity for two PCIe slots for graphical cards.

I suppose I can obtain 4 monitors easily from two graphic cards. And even more depending of the graphic card features.

I can add usb graphical addons.

I supose i can have mor additional monitors.

If one considers the possible problems finding a graphics card that will work with your motherboard, it might be easier overall to seriously consider (go) the DA (Distribution Amplifier) approach. It's a matter of connecting it to your computer; connecting displays to it; and powering up - no hassles re' compatibility etc? And the DA is available for future use with any other computer' whereas the graphic cards approach means those cards are likely only OK for current hardware?

And the DA route may be cheaper than using graphic cards?

I need the extended mode not the distribution mode.
It's not the same image in all monitor.
It's not a splitter .

I need six independent monitors.

Does this a Distribution amplifier ?

No - a DA will simply display whatever is on the main display monitor.

For 6 independent displays - with the desktop extended as it were from the main display (which is what you appear to want) you will need a card or cards with separate display outputs. Typically most current graphic cards usually allow the main and a second display; the second can be configured as an extended desktop area; and possibly some may allow the second display to be a duplicate of the main display. Laptops allow both options as I recall from days of yore, when I used to configure them for display on a large in-shot screen in a news studio.

So you will need graphic card(s) with sufficient outputs for you appear to want.

Based on the list in the link you give, you have a lot of research, looking to do - as in checking what the assorted cards listed there are? Also have you chatted, emailed, or even phoned Asus to see what they might advise?

Asus don't answer.
In the forum link that document.
Is a useless information and bad attention to customer.

I assume it's difficult to obtain that information and from that moment on i will try in the selling pages asking if they have a six mini DP graphic card compatible with the motherboard.

I suppose they will put more interest.

Thanks

A search for:

multi output graphic cards

brings many...

This is just one:

Perhaps repeat my google search and see what might be?

Is a not compatible one according to the asus compatibility list.
I don't understand the compatibility list, but the only reference seems to be

MATROX G450-PCI

Asus is a good provider for the most simplest cases.
But in this case Asus is the most incredible worst provider.
Useless and unattention
Give no answer.
