    I think it will support six, although you might want to get additional clarification on that. Each card supports three displays according to Apple's tech specs.

    It should support 4 just fine. And it can technically support 6 displays, but for 6 24" ACD, you would need a DVI male to MDP female.

    You'd need to get a couple of relatively pricey scaler units since the 24" (and 27") LED ACDs can't accept DVI input even if piggy backed over a MDP cable. You'd need one of these for each DVI port if driving 24" LED ACDs or one of these for each DVI port if driving 27" LED ACDs.

    Sorry to deviate the from the initial question but I think a more interesting question is whether or not they will support crossfire in windows :D
