I'm a bit surprised it has only 1 gig of memory. I think anyone interested in gaming and more than 3 monitors should go for two standard 5770s - a HD5850(5870) performance with 6 monitor outputs for probably only 50% extra cash.

I've always felt that being able to power an odd number of monitors is a bit useless - if you use over 3 monitors, you're probably going to want to tile them, and you can't do that with 5 monitors (as shown in picture (3)).

PowerColor should have made this with 4 outputs, then they could have given the product an awesome name like "Eyefinity Quad".

Not for games. It's good for presentations and multi display showing.

yea i have been running 3 for a while now and love it, but if i was going to add more it would be tiled, having them up over my first 3, so i guess 6 would be cool, but expensive.
Damn the tripple monitor stand cost me 250+ I wonder what a 6 monitor stand would run :rolleyes:

i'm not sure if the 5770 has enough horsepower to push games on 5 different monitors simultaneously.

I doubt the 5770 has enough muscle to pump more than 1 monitor at HD resolution on a graphic intensive game. However, that is not the point.

If you want a card that can support 5 monitors in 2D, there is no better solution than this! Matrox thingy is able to do 3 with a stupid analog connection and now you can plug 5 screens with full digital connection with radeon. For productivity, like CAD, engineering stuff, this is perfect. Not to mention presentation. This is the Bargain 2010, I reckon.
