Welcome to Insights!
The main board that you want to choose is fine with the Eyefinity 6 card. I suggest to disable the onboard graphics as it uses the Intel GPU and boot primary to the PCI-E for your graphics.
Now, since the Samsung has already DisplayPort™ inputs, all you need are 6 Mini-DisplayPort™ to DisplayPort™cables, make sure that you buy them with the length you require. No adapters here are required. The other option is to buy Mini-DisplayPort™ to Displayport™ adapters and regular DisplayPort™ cables.
We recommend the CAC-1110 and the CAC-1064
Now for the power supply I suggest to buy for the 500W a single rail design or a multiple rail such as the one you are choosing with more power. The power supply Pure Power L8 500W has 2 rails and the second rail, which will be powering your GPU external power plus any additional 12v components you place gives you 20A or 240Watt (20×12). Depending on your configuration such DVD-ROM, number of drives etc you might run a bit short on power. The 12V1 has 28A which powers your CPU, PCI-E etc. This will be sufficient for a single graphics card configuration but if you add two graphics card you might run short of power (each PCI-E 16x uses 75W or 6.25A (75/12).
For the Windows 7 64 bit is fine to run 6 displays.
ACCESSORIES: That will depend which road you want to take (adapters + cables or just cables)
POWER: Not convinced if you plan upgrades or have many components in the system.
