So for this new rig the first thing for me to do was decide on what graphics card I was going to run. I decided early on that I wanted to run 3 screens and had a little bit of money over the Summer and bought a Samsung P2450 (24" 1080p), which replaced my old Dell 21" CRT. I liked the monitor that much that I went out and bought another 2. So I currently have 3 screens, but my old 8800GTX can only run 2 of them.
According to this
review on Eyefinity, the HD 5870 is pretty good at gaming on 3 monitors, so I decided to wait for its replacement and went with the HD 6950.
I bought as soon as it came out and managed to get it for £223 before alot of the prices went up. I already bought a Sapphire active display port adapter (£16.99), so decided to go with the Sapphire HD 6950, as it comes with a mini dp to dp adapter and an hdmi 1.4a cable as well.
I'm expecting some stuff from Scan tomorrow, so will update some more then.
