This is likely to be the sticking point for me -- finding a 6xxx series PCI card with a DVI output. Besides, I'm going to hit that 4096 pixel limit, making 3D on the third screen impossibly anyway. I think this might mean I may as well just go with any card (even non-NVIDIA) as the third display?

Anyway, if you have an SLI mainboard with two 16x PCIe slots
available, then those multi-GPU cards might not be the best
choice for you concerning the price/performance ratio.
Unfortuntately not, I only have a PCIe x1 and a PCI slots. It's not really time for a new PC, there's a few years left in this one yet

Thanks Bernhard
