Well mine was clean when the future in-laws were over friday and saturday. Though once they left, well after they saw the clean place on friday, on saturday my desk started to collect things on it again.

My desk in generally tidy, with the exception of a couple of mail items when the postie brings me bills and maybe a cup.

Had something turn up in the mail today to hopefully fix some minor performance hassles when cranking up the settings with eyefinity:
These will replace my 2 x Asus HD5870 V2's

Definitely going to be a nice step up in performance for you then.

Having all sorts of problems at the moment, both cards are recognized but performance with two cards is very poor (10fps in most games). One card is fine.
Working through this at present at Guru3d, thread here:

Solved as per Guru3d thread - conductivity issues.
Massive improvement, almost double the FPS in Crysis 2 compared to the 5870's.

Onwards with more testing. This weekend I'll be running COD4 MW, Soulstorm, Flatout 2 and a few more at a LAN. Will post the results.

Was at a LAN this weekend so got plenty of gaming in.
Some moar testing:

Hunted: The demons forge - FOV issues, Fix here. - I added 60 to each FOVAngle setting in the referenced file.
Brink - Full support.
Dirt 3 - Full support.
The first Templar - FOV issues, have not yet found a fix.
Call of Duty 4 - Allows right res to be selected but is incredibly stretched looking. I'd say it's unplayable.
Flatout 2 - Allows right res to be selected but is incredibly stretched looking. I'd say it's unplayable.
Lego - Pirates of the caribbean - Allows right res to be selected but is incredibly stretched looking. I'd say it's unplayable.

Couple of pics of my setup as promised. One with flash, the other without to try and capture the 'glow' from the case. (taken in low-light conditions on a point and click Canon Ixus 860IS)

Looks good, now I have no real excuse not to take a picture of my own set up and show it off
