Keep in mind, also, that when you get to the higher pixel count, you
have to drive the monitor with 2 dvi connections (or an hdmi), so to run
two of those size of monitors, you'll have to have 2 video cards.  Just
something to keep in mind.  One card will not be able to drive 2 of
those higher res monitors.
