Lightboost is not compatible with any IPS/PLS panel, or 1440/1600p panels for that matter. So it would be useless on the ultrasharp.

Well, I owned a 460, 560Ti SLI, and now I'm on a 7870. I don't really have any brand preference. How is AMD superior in their multi-monitor drivers though? And ~$700 for a GPU solution right now, since that's the price of the 780 I have planned.

I'm going back and forth between that Asus 27" PLS monitor and 3 of the BenQ 24" 120Hz monitor (will get 2 more when Asus I can afford them if I go that way). What do you guys think?

AMD has fine cards, but note the Crossfire issues if you plan on hi-res gaming (i.e. micro-stutter).
As shiny as the 7970s are, one GPU won't cut it for most scenarios on multiple XL2420Ts at 120hz.

Had two 7970s and ended up selling them both just because of the constant Crossfire issues I had with that setup (more than just micro-stutter, but the issues were specific to my setup).
Overall the 7970s are solid cards, and a beta driver has been released to address micro-stutter, but my experience in that Nvidia is usually a stronger option when it comes to multi-card setups.

As far as multi-monitor, not sure what issues might be with either cards. Had multi-monitors on a 7970 and 670 and both ran them fine.

With regards for which monitor you should go with--that's a matter of preference at this point.
I think there's good information on both setups in this thread.

What it boils down to is this: do you want a faster response rate or prettier colors?
