Default 5970 + 30" Eyefinity up and running

Been up and running since late yesterday.
Had a few challenges (drivers.... surprise surprise) but it seems ok now.
I grabbed a second 5970 so I am going to try some quadfire action next, since the 9.12 drivers should now allow that on an Eyefinity setup.
I am quite happy with how immersive it is. The bezels don't bother me at all. Still getting used to having such a large desktop though. I sometimes forget that the Start menu is one screen over now -
Stay tuned.

Jan 3rd update-> Benchmarks added further along in thread.
