Adobe, it would be interesting if someone would check out this card for compatibility with Premiere for hardware MPE. We constantly have people that have requirements for more than two displays. All four outputs on this card (3 DVI and 1 HDMI) are usable simultaneously. While it is appreciably more expensive than two GTX 560 Ti cards the big advantage would be it is only a single PCIe interface. Apparently it is not SLI enabled externally (some gamers are upset by this) but that might be because the two onboard GPU's are in SLI mode internally--that would be a bummer for Premiere.

Approach this card with the utmost of care. Recently, nVidia has been having a bunch of driver trouble with this specific card for gamers. It's probably not completely apropos to compare the stress a gamer puts on his card to what an editor does. However, what the gamers are seeing is the driver just up and crashing under load.
It only seems to be happening with the 560Ti for some oddball reason. The troublemaking game is Battlefield 3. nVidia has ack'd the problem and they're hacking away at it. Given that, however, it might behoove you to look elsewhere.
