First off, are you expecting to game at all 6 monitors at the same time? If the answer to that is yes, then even at light games, you need a much better GPU.

List your full system specs and what games are you planning to play and at what resolutions.

That GPU is from 2014 so by today's standards it's not really good. It is old technology and you will need better cards. You will almost probably need a new PSU as well.

Need to know what games, what resolution, and what PSU you have.

You can use 6 monitor outside games in SLI , but for games you cant.

for upto 16 monitors you will need nvidia Quadro cards

for 6 monitors , AMD Radeon Pro cards , like

But would i be able to install AMD Radeon Pro cards in intel x99 motherboard ??
 
I do not even know if this will work but.....

Do your current monitor have Display Port?

Each Display Port should be able to drive 2 monitors (depending on the resolution). It will be an expensive setup cause if it works you will a need current top of the line GPU to drive such a huge amount of pixels with at least 3 independent display port . And thats if the games can be configured to work on 6 screens. I know most games can run on 3 monitors but never tested more than 3.

The bad thing about SLI and Surround is that its not supported by many games, and specially not the newer ones. I tried this at work when I build a Video Wall with 6 screens and 2 GTX 980 (I think it was 2015) and it did run 2013 Tomb Raider in a "decent" way expanded to all 6 screens but that was it, the other game I tried did not work and it supported SLI according to developers.

in that case maybe i should buy the new LG 75 in Nano tv that will do the job what u think
it is a nice choice ... but get only the Nano series not the normal series if you want to game on LG.

this one

also , dont get nano80 , get nano 85 , because it has 120hz refresh rate and supports ALLM and AMD freesync

Dont get any nano tv below 85 models , 85 and above (this is not the screen size, it is the model)
