Say I have 6 graphics cards in my machine. New Nvidia's for instance.

How can I send a specific render call to a specific graphics card, so I can render 6 different views, one on each?

This is not really a function of OpenGL, but of windows.
You would need to have an software API that supports multiple video cards.

Then you would write in your code using the multiple video card API to open a window in each video card, then direct openGL to render once for each windows up have opened.

My ATI comes with software for two montor support, I would only need open a window and direct it to which monitor I wanted it to show too.
