Hello.. I want to create a control room by myself for work purposes (not for gaming or whatever).. the thing is that I don't know much things about computers so I would really appreciate if someone helped me..
I want to connect 9 monitors to 1 pc (if it is possible, if it isn't possible then I can get 2 pcs).. I have already get the 9 monitors as well as the monitor mount stand holder but I have no idea what to get next.. HDMI splitters? graphic cards? what pc or pcs should I get? Can someone help me?

Graphics cards obviously. At least 3 of them (with at least 3 video outputs on each of them).
Plus - motherboard needs to have at least 3 PCIE x16 slots.

IIRC, Nvidia's 10-series GPUs can handle a maximum of six simultaneous displays each if you use DP MST and a DP 1.4 port can feed up to 4x 4k@30Hz displays. So you'd need two GPUs with either one 1:4 MST splitter to feed four monitors or a pair of 1:2 ones unless your monitors have integrated MST pass-through.

I am 99% sure that a discrete gpu will disable the igpu
Depends on the motherboard. Some will leave it enabled by default if you didn't force it off as long as there is a monitor connected to it at boot.

What cpu are you planning on getting? If you are not sure, you can tell me your budget and needs and I can try to help you find some parts. :)
Thank you I appreciate every help:)! I think I wanna go for the Intel core i9.. now regarding the needs I want the pc to be able to run different kind of programs such as AnyDesk, TeamViewer, SCADA, Autocad, PLC etc. and I also wanna use some of the monitors to watch my security cameras. My budget is around 5000-7000 euros.

Budget?
Hardware preferences? Intel, AMD, Nvidia?
Purpose of the system? What kind of software will be used there?

Would also help to know what monitors you currently have. Are they all the same model? If so, what model? If not, what models.
Also, what country are you purchasing from?

-Wolf sends
The monitors I got are all the same model Philips 273V7QDAB - 27 Inch FHD Monitor (1920 x 1080, 75 Hz, 250 cd/m², 4 ms, IPS, HDMI/VGA/DVI) and I'm purchasing them from Greece. However, unfortunately Greece doesn't have a wide market variety so I usually order most of the things I want from Amazon UK.

I know this is way under budget, but since you aren't doing any gaming, this should be fine.

consult with other people anyways though. I ain't that smat
