PLEASE NOT THAT THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE SERVICE, NOT THE DEVICE ITSELF, THE DEVICE WAS EVERYTIHNG THAT I WANTED.
So, I had been looking at this graphics card for a while, and i was amazed at the drop in price, so instantly I bought it. When it arrived in the mail, I was a little thrown off by the fact that rolled up paper was the only material used to cussion the box of the graphics card while it was in transit. never-the-less, I opened it to find that while the casing foam for the graphics card inside of the card's box was very strong, the card was still damaged. Specifically, three of the four screws that hold the card's fan array to the heatsink had broken, and one had completely fallen out, with no hope of repair. luckily, when i pushed the fans back agaisnt the heatsink one of the screws was able to snap back into the broken half of its casing, but that does not mean that I am out of the woods. I will be sending a very angry letter to tiger direct on their product handling. if you are planning on ordering this card, order it from amazon.com itself, not from Tiger Direct through amazon.

Works fine and looks awesome, but features are deceiving. Be careful.
I purchased this believing I could use this card like AMD's Eyefinity and it is not the same at all. Basically, this card is a work around for the Nvidia two display limit. They've installed a bridge chip that combines three monitors into one, and windows always sees this display as one giant display. Very cool for gaming, but this can never be turned off to get three independent displays. The included software only stops windows from maximizing across all three monitors and that is it. Your desktop is always spanned across all the monitors and windows only ever sees two displays.
If you want more flexibility, stick with Eyefinity from AMD until Nvidia gets on the bandwagon with better multidisplay ability.
