I have seen those - will probably retail for $100-$150 each. Another alternative is to daisy chain monitors from the DP connectors - as long as the monitors (and the card off course) support daisychaining - I think maybe only my Philips monitor does, and I'm not sure about the card.
If you are really keen on getting a 6 monitor set up I would recommend looking into getting a Radeon HD 7870 eyefinity 6 edition card. This card would have the 6 outputs you would need.
I don't understand why I need to buy another card for connecting 6 displays - I already have a card that claims to support 6 displays. Another issue with even that card (I think), is the need for active DP adapters for legacy monitors (HDMI and/or DVI). I think there will still be a limitation re how many legace connections are supported (i.e. passive adapters).
For the time being I'm using a cheap dual-monitor card for 2 of my displays, and I'm awaiting a DP<->miniDP cable in order to connect both the 27"s to DP on the 7870 card. With 2 DP monitors and 2 legacy (DVI and HDMI) on the 7870, I will get a 6 monitor setup - much cheaper than buying a new card with 6 DP connectors. I won't get Eyefinity, but I don't need it. I just need the monitors to work independantly.
