Jeff, in regards to LR's processing speeds on a 30" monitor, do you see anything coming down the pipe from LR to help address this issue?  It's quite a difference in speed between say a 26" NEC and the 30" NEC.  I notice that the 30" seems to bog down over time, sliders start to jerk, etc.  A reboot seems to fix it but after 30 minutes or so, the slow downs start up again.

This is running on a Win7 64 bit machine, 16GB of ram, 3.2 quad core, nvidia Card with 1GB of ram.

Thanks
Paul

I am currently using a Gigabyte GTX470, which uses the nvidia GTX 470 shipset, with 1280MB  GDDR5/32 bit ram.

In CS5 and 6 extended with the Open GL expansion turned on, I believe I can see a difference, mainly in how images are painted at 100% and when you move around an image. 

In LR, really since I started using a 30" monitor, it just doesn't seem to run as smoothly as on my system with a 26" NEC.   I have looked in the LR pref's but have never found any setting devoted to the use of Open GL or a setting allowing you to use the video ram like photoshop does.
