That's all.
ATi seems to be having driver issues of late, as reported at AnandTech:

But that is not an excuse for the kind of horrific experience we've had with every single other AMD solution when playing this game.....Maintaining a monthly driver release schedule is detrimental to AMD's ability to release quality drivers.......But when a major title like Far Cry 2 is released to incredibly poor driver support, it is time to wake up and realize that something is wrong......we do see a lot more issues with AMD drivers than NVIDIA...And now it is time for AMD to learn from their mistakes and change over to a more manageable and sensible driver release policy....
In answer to the OP:

EVGA Core 216s on sale dirt cheap at newegg this weekend, my guess is they'll go fast.
intel 990X + 2 X EVGA 3GB GTX580 + 3 X Acer GD235Hz
3D Vision Surround

Rig 2:
intel 2500K + NVIDIA GTX590 + Dell 3007 WFPHC
