with things like doublehead2go, or triplehead2go  :
you can easily have lot's of screen on 1 computer.
(downside is that the screen are only horizontal)

i made a 6 screen installation with a 400€ desktop having good performance.
(GPU was a NVIDIA 9600 or something : only use nvidia gpu on linux if you need good performance and are not afraid of proprietary driver).

but what is the resolution of the screen?
to have a screen disposition like this :
x x x
x x x
is less a problem than like this :
x x x x x x
The size of openGL windows is hardware limited. usually 4096x4096, but can go up to 8192x8192 with GPU having lot's of memory (go for 1go video Ram).
