Decisions, decisions, decisions.

Just got done with my first year of college and now I can put a little bit of money towards something a bit more awesome. :sol: 

I currently have an MSI Twin Frozr II 5850 that I'm looking to get rid of and upgrade.

My current monitors are:
1. 27" Asus LED.
2. Dell 20"
3. Dell 20"
4. Samsung 20"

Now comes the decision.

I can either:
1. Sell the 3 20" monitors and my 5850 and put it towards a 570/580 along with a 24" 3D Monitor and have my 27" on the side.


2. Sell the 3 20" monitors and my 5850 and put it towards a 6950/6970 along with 2 more of the Asus 27" panels to have an epic eyefinity setup.

I've done eyefinity with my 3 20" monitors before and loved it. I just hated that when I was done gaming, I had to do everything else on a tiny 20" monitor.

Anyways, all suggestions and opinions are welcome. Thank you, my kind fellows.

My personal opinion, and this is all about opinion, is I'd rather go eyefinity. The main reason is that I would not like to wear glasses every time I wish to game in 3D. Eyefinity doesn't have those constraints.

I have a great pair of Dolby 7.1 headsets that I rarely use, because having to wear equipment to play a game is annoying. Sure, I occasionally put them on, but it's just not enjoyable for long periods of time.

I just thought about that same thing. I have a pair of Audio Technica A700's I wear most of the time. Eyewear would probably bother me.

Thank you sir.
