    Hey guys,

    So I have a dilemma, I am looking to buy a new system, but I have the following requirements:

    A video card that can last me a few years (~4)
    A video card that can support max 3 screens
    A video card that can play games (well, pretty much the only game I'll play is Diablo III)

    So I am debating on what I could buy.

    I've been reading on the ATI Radeon HD 5850 with eye affinity, but I read that they have problems with multi-monitors; they apparently flicker and what not. So that did discourage me.

    What would you guys recommend?

    Do you have an SLI or crossfire capable motherboard?

    Well if you can afford it then I think that would be your best option, go for a dual set of cards, you could probably have 4 monitors going then as most high end cards now have dual DVI's. Heck my BFG 9800 GTX +OC has.
