I don't care about benching or playing on Eyefinity/multiple monitors and never have. I freely admit that people do like and use that feature but I am not one of them.

You have a habit of responding to my posts in a defensive manner (as in defending your purchases) and you shouldn't feel the need to.

Nothing to do with defending purchases at all,as i know i bought a pair of monsters,but the sad reality is,benchmarking cards as powerfull as these,on either HD5970's of Fermi cards,on a single display,even if it's a 30" LCD at 2560*1600 resolutions with 8X AA,will result in at least some cases that are CPU limited,so in those cases,we're not really testing the video cards,as it becomes more the video cards testing the rest of the system....Bank on it.

Not to mention that single 30" LCD is over 1000$ easy,and that 3 displays can be not much over 1/2 that amount,depending on what you choose,and the extra workload reduces the chances of being CPU limited,so it's not a matter of liking or disliking triple displays,it a matter of wanting to show what these GPU's can really do with current games.

ATI can do it with a single card....Nvidia needs at least 2 fermi cards in SLI,making it a more expensive option,and since you'll be running dual or triple SLI fermi cards,you're definitely going to need those 3 displays to uncork the speed potential of those cards.
