  1. Well if gaming is on the cards then Eyefinity would be 1st on my lips but since it is not:

    Typically for peeps i'd go with the ATI Surroundview solution which basically entails

    ATI 690G chipset or later
    Radeon discrete GPU

    The above , when SurroundView is enabled in BIOS gives the user the ability to drive 4 or *more displays (*with a crossfire capable board)

    So if u looking at cheap/low power draw/low noise

    Propus 635
    760G/780LE/785G mobo
    4gb ddr3
    HD 5450, preferably passively cooled
  2. Too cheap actually. I want something more powerful, sorry I should have specified better. I was thinking i should run a second video card to accomplice my current 8800gt, so nvidia will most likely be needed and run the 3 displays from the 2 cards (not in SLI).
  3. Also, I would eyefinity on the 5800's be worth it for work/multitasking?
