I'm getting 3 of these as well as the correct active displayport adapter to run in eyefinity.

What is my performance going to be like running these bad boys?

Specs
ASUS P6T Deluxe Mobo
I7 920 @ 3.4ghz
6 GB Corsair Dominator RAM
P256 256 SSD + 500gb 7200 Drive
XFX Radeon HD 5970 Black Edition Stock Speed
Creative X-Fi Titanium 7.1 Sound Card
Windows 7 64 bit

CPU and GPU are water cooled in their own loop, so there is room for overclocking.



Any idea?

What are you getting 3 of?

You should get some thing similar to what the HardOCP reviewers got in this Eyefinity Performance Review

Does this comment on the first page also apply to you?
The Radeon HD 5970 (dual-GPU video card) is unique however. It has one mini-DisplayPort connector and two dual-link DVI connectors. With this video card it is required (if your display doesn’t support mini-DisplayPort) to use a full size DisplayPort to mini-DisplayPort adaptor. Do not confuse this adapter with an active DVI to DisplayPort adaptor; they are two very different things

The link to what I'm getting is in my post.

It's 3 Asus 24" VW246H 2MS response monitors.

lol, wr2. click the word 'these'

I imagine the performance will be pretty good. its not going to get a whole lot better thats for sure. whack the GPUs up to their 'real' default clocks and i think you should be able to eyefinity just about anything.
