Title. I have 2 GTX 275's and triple 22" monitors. Want to be able to game using triple screens but can't right now. Should I wait until "Summer 2010" to download nvidia's surround driver (which might be delayed again, was originally supposed to come out in april) or just buy a radeon 5870?

I believe nvidia's surround driver will allow you to have multiple monitors in an SLI setup, and since GTX 275 SLI is slightly better than a GTX 295 due to higher clock rates, I would be downgrading significantly if I were to go to a single 5870. However, buying a 5870 would allow me to add a second one in crossfire once I have the money which would be an overall upgrade to my current setup (although that would be $800 for the 5870s plus $100 for an active displayport adapter, so $900 in total just for a few frames).
Even though it's going to suck having to play all my games on one monitor and in non SLI, I think I will stick with my current GFX cards for now
I think sticking with your current setup is the best idea. Plus more financially responsible (I hate that!!). LOL
Hang in there, nVidia will deliver eventually. I told my wife all about multi monitor gaming, she didn't like the idea of my buying two more monitors and a GTX470 though Course in my case, a GTX470 wouldn't be much upgrade from my SLI setup either. Not much point in doing it with current pricing.
