Thanks for that Steve.

So if I was to use both of my cards - it'd be done in the following configuration:

GTX460 - Main LCD display on DVI & program/playback LCD display on HDMI.
9800GT - Secondary LCD display for more windows.

Now that I've got this sorted (I think!), all I'd need to sort out is what sort of monitor I should be looking for, for use as the program/playback display and what tools I'd need to calibrate it for post production purposes.

I apologise for all the questions, I'm new to this - but very keen to learn!

That is only 1080i. Is that an issue for you with 1080p material? Something similar in 1080p?

Thanks

Something like this worth considering for edit/CC?

Definitely stay away from the Sony LCDs as they have poor image quality for their price.

That Eizo is nice but cannot be hardware calibrated to specific color spaces.

NEC MultiSync PA241W-BK 24" Widescreen LCD PA241W-BK B&H
NEC Display Solutions PA241W-BK

This NEC can be hardware calibrated to specific color spaces and is quite comparable to my $2300 Eizo.

Its $800 at B&H for the monitor only and $1240 with calibration device. I don't see why NEC is charging so much just for their calibration device when an i1 is only $150. When you add up a Matrox Mini at $450 and a decent 24" (Dell U2410) at $550, this NEC is a great deal AND provides SUPERIOR image quality.
