Yes.

Windows 10 is not yet certified with WATCHOUT.

The list does indicate Windows 10 Pro,

Windows 7 Professional may be installed with the Win 10 Pro license.

However, not all modern motherboards / processors are Windows 7 compatible.

I have no idea of the windows 7 suitability of the motherboard chosen.

 

can i add another gtx 1080 to add 2 more output?

 

No.

The outputs from only one graphics card are available to WATCHOUT.

Additional cards may be used for additional GPU processing power (i.e. Crossfire or SLI),

but you will still only be able to use the outputs from one card.

 

do you have some suggestion for a 6 output video card?

 

AMD FirePro W9100

if i install windows 7 pro on that pc i can use it whit watchout 6?

 

the other hardware is ok?

 

Assuming the drivers are all solid, most likely yes,

the tuning of Windows is still critical.

Verification of all the various drivers is on the PC builder though.

If you have second pc of this grade (power) - dont use it as producer machine but as second watchpoint machine and you will get six outputs. You can use nearly any notebook for production machine. The downside is that this solution requires one more licence...

Hi, there are issues with the Nvidia drivers in windows 10. When using multiple displays you might get noise in the image. Stick with windows 7. Depending on how much GPU power you need you could use AMD W600/Matrox C680 (same GPU) for six outputs which will suit most needs.

 

Note that gaming hardware like the geforce card isn't designed for 24/7 usage, and you will not have any EDID management and frame sync. Also I would RAID-0 two 256 GB SSDs instead of a single 512 GB giving you more disk bandwidth if you want to play image sequences or HAPs in high resolutions.
