Well if you look at my thread in Dell General... you can get them for 764$ right now. They lowered the price to 999$ and are currently giving an instant 20% off. Then you can goto eBay and get a 35$ off 300$ E&A coupon for 2$. That brings the price down to 764$ + tax + free shipping.
Also... it appears that Matrox has answered your prayers.http://www.tgdaily.com/2006/03/02/matrox_3screen_tech/
They have a new device that finally is going to hit shelves. It will be a box that allows you to plug into 1 of your VGA/DVI ports, and then you can plug 3 monitors into the box. The box has a driver that makes Windows recognize it as a single monitor. Then thru a software application you can custom change the "virtually supported resolutions".
This allows you to tell Windows that you have a 5040x1050 monitor (3 1680x1050 screens side-by-side). Then the box will split the signal to each monitor. It will also support 150 games at launch, so you're surely to have your favorites covered. It goes on sale in April for 300$. Sure to give a more immersive experience to your games.
I was thinking of doing something similar with some 2005FPW's as it would cost almost half the price (1500$) compared to using 3 2405FPW's and box at a cost of 2700$.
