Normally people ask what two cards to get, I'm asking what card to get to go with my new monitors.
Resolutions are 1680x1050 and will be doing some heavyish gaming: Crysis/Cod/D3 maybe if that requires anything heavy.
I've got a huge list of cards but don't know what to do, It's my first dual monitor setup.
Also, mobo is single card solution so not worried about sli/cf.
Budget is 200ish, not really looking to spend that much more, but it looks like the 4870 would be a good deal, 164.99 for the 512mb version. Maybe, Let me know what your opinion is.

if you're going to be doing that kind of gaming, forget having two monitors. the performance would be very bad on a resolution like that. 3360x1050 is a pretty high number of pixels.
I do dual monitors, I play on a 22, and have the 42 inch for Internet, vent, music and xfire, its a nice setup. I would probably got with the 4870 with that range of cash. I just did a quick search in case the 4890 might be coming out soon, and rumors are April. With a price of 299, so if it is or isn't, probably out of your price range.
