I had been checking that out and it is impressive. But three new slimline monitors
is alot of Rubles. Still not sure about shooters on multiple monitors. Racing sims
and flight sims are great but the monitor frames can interfere with some FPS's.
Plus the cost of the ATI DX11 VC...ouch! It would be a nice dream.

Looks good. You would think that one of the screen manufacturers would have come up with a screen with an ultra thin bezzle by now.

When they come out in a couple weeks, I think the price will surprise you. I am pretty sure they were using the x2 card that will not be out right away. The regular cards can only do THREE monitors! I know I just bought a 4890, and it's awsome!, but I plan on getting one of the 5890's.

On that new I7 system, will you be able to Crossfire the 5890 with the 4890?

Not sure I will need to. The 4890 plays everything I like to play with everything maxed out. Even Newsa! I don't really need a 5890, but will get one anyway. Unless my wife kills me, that is. :-" I suspect they will not crossfire, but I will check on it.
