I want to use 6 monitors :

-2 HP Compaq LA2205wg with VGA, DVI & DisplayPort (Resolution max 1680x1050).

-4 TVs  with Full HD Resolution, VGA & HDMI.

I don't care with performances, I just need to enable display on this 6 monitors.

So, what do you suggest me, 1 graphic card with  Eyefinity 6 (Like 5870 Eyfinity 6, but it is high cost), or CrossFire of 2 HD5450 ?

If you have another suggestions, it's welcome !

You cannot connect monitors to each card in a Crossfire setup.  Only the primary can have monitors attached.  You can connect displays to multiple cards that are not linked in Crossfire.

That would be the most economical way to get six monitors, since you'd be able to put three on each as you have them - one LA2205wg on each via DisplayPort, and two TV's via either VGA or HDMI/DVI.

With a 6-port card, you'd need at least two active DisplayPort adapters, and the card itself will be much more expensive.
