I was hoping that you would say that!
That DVI would do 1080p and blu rays? Ah sweet now my head ache has gone away!

Right because its off the mb right and now off the video card? right....what im doing is mainly video editing and lots of it and i don't want one screen lower quality than the other. So would i be able to do what Vmem said or would i have to get a video card with two hdmis?

Any screen and video card with HDCP(DVI/HDMI/DP, but NOT VGA) will play bluray just fine. VGA + some software can play bluray but thats another topic.

If your screens are only HDMI, you can also get a adapter or cable to go from DVI->HDMI(without sound)

Enjoy the new setup.

EDIT

HDMI and DVI have the exact same image quality.

At its core HDMI is DVI + Digital Audio.
