Okay, so I'm building a new PC this Christmas. Kepler probably won't be out until afterwards, and I'm not going to buy right off the bat because chances are that the top-end Kepler GPU (likely the 680) will be around $600. (speculation, but if the 580 was in the 500s, I expect Kepler to be a pretty penny as well)
Now, I'm also going to be buying a 24" monitor THIS Christmas. What I plan to do long-term, however, is get a 30" monitor sometime in 2012, perhaps Christmas at that time. (given that Samsung's new beast of a monitor should be out by then)
The question I have for OCN is this. What is the best stop-gap dual-GPU setup I can get to run 1920x1200? I'm planning on buying the U2410, because when I get the new 30", I'll probably hand the 24" down to my family, and I figured I'd get myself (and them) a nice monitor. I'm currently looking at 2 XFX 6950s, for around $540 total. I'll be handing those down as well whenever I buy Kepler (sometime past July of 2012)
I could play the waiting game until mid 2012, or Christmas 2012, but if you look at my rig below, I seriously cannot take another year of waiting. I've been meaning to upgrade since 2010, but I've really never gotten around to it.
Thanks for the help, OCN.
