    Reckon the 1GB frame buffer on a stock Radeon HD 4890 is insufficient? Now you can double up.

    Why the VGA port? :|

    They'd have been better off with 2xDVI's and throwing in a dongle.

    Bit odd. Still, is that a HDMI port next to the VGA port? If it is, then it's not a big deal then - for they'll probably throw a HDMI/DVI converter for those who needs it.

    By no means - my office PC stills runs onto a 17" CRT which I am reluctant to change, so I'll be using VGA for quite some time... (tbh I'd upgrade to a 21" CRT if I could find one...)

    Does your office machine need an HD4890 though?
