Save some more money over the next 3 months when the 6 cores drop at christmas and get 2 of these now - XFX HD-597X-ENFN Radeon HD 5970 BLACK 4GB 512 (256 x 2)-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Eyefinity 6 Edition Video Card


If I had that kind of budget I would personally build an AMD/AMD ( ) based system and spring on 2 x 5970 3 monitors for Eyefinity. 2500 is something I would LOVE to have to spend on my man cave components
