Default Video Card Opinions!

Hey Folks!
Im upgrading my GPU and was thinking about picking up this one here:

What do you think? and if you have any other suggestions I would like to hear them! and also... I want to know how i can get a 3 monitor setup. If someone could help me on that as well that would be awesome!

Hey,
The 5770 is a good card in my opinion and will probably be my next card. Are the 3 monitors going to be for gaming or is it going to for productivity? if it is for gaming i would consider a 5830 or the 2gb version of either of those cards as the extra performance would certainly be wonderfull. the 5830 doesnt cost much more either. Do you need to buy 3 monitors or do you already have 1 or 2? is so, what model are they or what model/models are you interested in?
