ATI relevant gaming cards for multi-monitor....
1GB: 6770, 6790, 6850, 6870, 6950
2GB: 6990, 6970, 6950

Hell, I could even go back to the 5 series for multi monitor support on a single GPU if I wanted.

Though, even you said that 1 gpu is worthless for eyefinity and surround gaming... So, that leaves us with... hmm... 6990 and 590... 2GB vs 1.5GB. Also, don't you need SLI for surround gaming too? So that pretty much removes every gpu from your list except the 590.

Also, what are you talking about excluding previous gen? Hard to exclude something that is already featured. Unless you want to go all the way to the 4000 series. lol.
I shared that data in my 3d stereo thread awhile back. The key wording is demonstrating and nVidia is offering this to the consumer. But, it's wonderful to see Sapphire demonstrate this and another example of the industry trying to promote 3d stereo and reasons why it improves immersion and the gaming experience.

It's wonderful to have multi-monitor gaming on one card and hopefully future cards from nVidia will have this option. Thankfully, there is multi-GPU and having more performance for these resolutions is certainly welcomed, too.

Kyle's methods may not be agreed upon, but I am glad his site offered more awareness about the memory limitations at the higher resolutions because now nVidia and some partners are offering more ram choice for their Sku's.
