Will get a blu ray player that is on sale when I order. Need some GPU advice, I want to run upto 8 monitors at some point. I am looking into the eyefinity cards, it seems to run a pretty smooth and clean dispaly aray. I am pretty sure I should be able to get away with a win 7 ultimate upgrade if I can get an older version from work.
