Question from a total newb, so forgive me. A lot of people, if I understand correctly, are asking why they would use two 5850's instead of one 5970. I'm sure that is a very valid question, and I;m not questioning it. What I want to know is, wouldn't it be better to have two GPUs if you want to run three (or more) displays?
I'm not saying that's why they did it, or that there might not be some other or even better way to run multiple monitors, but I just thought that two GPUs would be an easy way to use three monitors. Is that correct? What else am I missing? Thanks!
