Those are just revisions though. Meat helmet and I were talking about the 58XX series (R800).

It would make a lovely paper weight. Or you could always go dual monitors, and I'm sure you could sell it as well.

I'm looking at getting a new monitor as well. I will also be running dual monitors... I will use it for extended desktop so I can run apps on different screens.. Example would be typing up a word doc on one monitor while you have a movie playing on the other monitor...
