If you are going three monitors and only want to use a single card you will have to use the ATI card. The only way to drive three monitors for gaming with Nvidia is to use two or more graphics cards.

I say get a 6950 and flash it.

Don't know what to get as far as CPU goes. I been looking at the i7 950 v.s. the i7 870. Same price....?
post #18 of 21
If your going the Sabertooth route, the 950 is your only choice. I would have gone with the 6970 also, it's not a guarantee the 6950 will unlock and one card is way cheaper then two.

And to the person who stated AMD's drivers are whacked, it takes patience to find a release that works, but once you do, I've never had problems. This is from owning an 8700GT, 4850, 4870 and 8800GT.

Very nice build You could get a cheaper PSU, like an X-750 or somewhere around there unless you want to add another 6970.

I vote for something other then the CoolIT, the H50 is slightly better overall.

Yup, planning on adding another 3 monitors and another 6970. If I were to go the i7 870 route i would have to switch the board. Which cpu is better for my use though?
