What functionality and features would YOU actually take advantage of day-to-day? Six monitors? I doubt it. what I have seen is more a process of connecting the dots.

One thing to watch is the 3d fight since AMD has announced they are entering into it. I hope it does not turn into a Blue Ray vs HD DVD war.
ATI has the same flash capability. Guys are running it now on the 5xxx series.

The GPU computing obviously has potential, but again, I look at that as more for workstation use. How does/will it benefit gaming in the future?
