First off can two of these cards work easily in tandem with one another? Creating an extended display across a matrix of 4x3 screens?

What type of software is used to extend the display? Can pictures and videos be set up to play across all screens easily?

What would the minimum system requirements be for this type of system?

I have been placed in charge of building a video wall here at my office, and I'm thinking one of the cheaper ways is to build my own desktop capable of managing anywhere from 9-12 screens.

Thanks!

If you're using multiple W600s, you can have 12 monitors all at once, you just can't create an Eyefinity grouping of all 12 monitors (so that you have 1 massive screen made up of 12 monitors). You can definitely extend to all 12 though and this can be done through the Catalyst Pro Control Center (which comes with the drivers), you just need 2 PCIe x16 slots (2.0 or 3.0), a 500W or higher Power Supply, and either direct Mini DIsplayPort-to-DisplayPort connections for the monitors, or that you utilize at least 4 active adapters from www.amd.com/dongles for each card (so 2 passive per card max).
