So dumb question but how are 3 vid cards powering 5 monitors? Does that mean each video card that has 2 connections can power 2 screens? So I can get technically with my SLI setup 4 screens working?

PS : those hanns monitors are the S*$T! I dont know how they are for gaming purposes though.

z3r010 is not running ''SLI'', the cards all run independently, so 1 monitor per port......

I can't believe I haven't posted my rig on here yet! I guess I've just been lazy and haven't gotten around to take pictures yet. I am going to slowly start updating my setup, starting with a new CPU cooler, probably the Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme with the snap on fan. I am also looking into getting a new monitor, I love mine, but I want a 24" or bigger wide screen! I was thinking of either a 24" Dell Ultrasharp 2408WFP or after seeing z3r010's I am now also thinking a 27.5" Hanns-G HG-281DPB but I notice it has no DVI, so are u using a HDMI to DVI connector? If so how is it? After comparing the 2, the Dell seems to be the better quality monitor, but is also about $490, where the Hanns is quite a bit bigger with a better response time, 3ms to Dell's 6ms, and is about $330 (cheapest i could find on the web), which is about $160 cheaper...hmmm....what do u guys think?
I also need a new hardrive, not another Raptor, but one for storage so probably a 1TB drive. Then after all of that maybe a new graphics card or 2!!

Alas, here is my rig!! (My desk is actually tucked into my closet in my room to save space, since we have a ton of other closets here! )

Specs:
Case: Lian Li PC-V200 Plus II
CPU: Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700 Kentsfield 2.66GHz (Quad Core)
Motherboard: NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI
GPU: NVIDIA 8800GTX 512mb
Memory: 4x DDR2 1GB Corsair CMX1024-8500C5 (4 gigs total)
Hard Drives: 2 80gig Raptor WD74 0GD-00FLA2 10,000K RPM SATA
Power Supply: E-Power Silent Engine 1000 Watt Tiger

I'm using the HDMI to DVI lead that is supplied with the monitor and it works fine.
