Micro Center sold one w/ the same ports for $400, but this one has a much better stand. Definitely worth the extra $30 if anybody is debating between the two.
Anyway, I just picked up Ravenas' XFX 6870 Eyefinity 6 edition to try and see if I can see the POST screen. I thought I could live with it but with the amount of tweaking I do in the BIOS, it'll be a major inconvenience not be able to see anything prior to the Windows 7 startup sound. Will update as to how that goes in a few days!
