980x, dual 5970 system?

...Why don't you just google lcd monitor in shopping, set it to highest price first and pick that one, with that kind of system i'm sure you'll be able to afford it.

^LOL just did that and the first monitor was a 56'' for a low price of $58,000!!!

no need to be so mean

@OP, whats your budget, you may want to look into 30" monitors (2560x1600), though the viewsonic should be pretty good

I'm with the rest of the people here, Buy the highest resolution/biggest monitor you can buy. 30'' 2560x1600 will be it. If you're not connecting any other input sources into it, i'd recommend Dell 3007wfp-hc.

Why such a small monitor Eylee? He's got the 5970 so he can use Eyefinity. Get three monitors, either 1920x1080 or 2560x1600. Enable eyefinity and make sure you duct taped your socks on.

well if its enough not he could just buy two more 5970's and throw em' in quadfire. Then he can buy six of those 30'' monitors.

nope, 2 x 5970 is already quadfire, so thats the limit (each on has 2 gpus each)

Oh wow I knew it was a dual GPU card but I was unaware you couldn't take it past crossfire.

Could you imagine four 5970's in quadfire, 8 gpus!
:ouch:

well considering how bad 3 and 4 gpu's scale in crossfire/sli, 8 would be horrendous, in factyou might get to a point of diminishing returns, not to mention for the 5970 to work well it really needs the full pci-e 2.0 x16 bandwidth, so with 4 cards you would need 48 lanes, which no board has (some have the NF200 chip that multiplexes lanes, but it would still be bottlenecked at some point)

Yeah, if possible it would be a huge waste of money. I bet some people would still try to do it though....
