How much 'display' can I get out of a GTX 670 2GB?

E.g. what would the specification of a single monitor have to be, where if you went under it, you would be wasting your money with such a graphics card?

Size, res (lets set that at 1080p), response time etc.

Asking because I want to know the cheapest & smallest monitor I can get away with without wasting this card's potential...kinda tight for deskspace :) 

Also, similarly what would be the maximum spec of two (identical) monitors for one such card?

With that card you can hit about 2 monitors
But you're tight on space so I would probably go for 1/2 1600x900 or 1440x900 but if you feel really cheap you can go 1280x720
nVidia has pretty good card reaction times so I would think about a 20-30 ms delay with 2 1600x900 screens both when ingame

Thanks. So after some more research, I'm thinking of getting the Dell UltraSharp U2312HM.

Anyone think that would be a waste for a single GTX 670?

Nope - 670 is right on the money for 1080p. Anything higher and i'd be looking to sli.

Thanks! And for 2 Dell U2312HMs? Does that count as 'higher' when you say 'higher'?

If trying to game on two, need multiple gpus. If gaming on one and having a browser, chat, etc open on the other one gpu is fine.

Note on two monitor gaming - in my opinion (only) it looks craptastic to play any shooter, sim, or 3rd person with the monitors bezels splitting the center of the scene. To me, multi monitor gaming is one or three.
