My System Specs

Default

So I guess the next question would be: Will adding in a second card to drive a 4th (2nd) monitor negatively impact the performance of my 5970 (4Gb) as opposed to just running the card alone at 16X ?
Will I see a big difference performance wise when it's running at 8X ?
If so, I guess I could dig around for an older PCI card which would not effect the PCIE bandwidth at all .... correct ?
BTW ... Thanks so much for the quick and intelligent responses already received, I really appreciate it :)
