Save up some cash and grab a nice 27" Dell IPS panel.
It's the best alternative to Eyefinity in my opinion.

Well, that's a lot of graphics horsepower that'll be needed. Really just one card probably isn't up to the challenge. A 2GB 6970, or unlocked 2GB 6950 on ATI will be your best bet. I don't think nVidia supports single-GPU surround gaming. If they did, a 3GB GTX 580 would be my suggestion.

The unlocked 2GB 6950 would be cheapest, but there are few and far between 100% reference boards new anymore, and buying used can either be hit or miss, or be charged a slight premium for a known good unlocker.

I've said this once and will say again:

SC2 is not GPU intensive at all. Source games are even less. The only problem with high resolutions & high AA is video RAM. So get a 6970, it has 2GB of video RAM, enough for 3 monitors.

Did you know that VRAM doesn't stack? If you were to have 4 video cards, all 1GB models, you would collectively have 1GB of VRAM.

You guys serious? Those games would be pretty easy for a 5850, get that. You may be able to find one for $180 or so.

I would consider this is you are on a budget.

Though 2 460's would be cheaper it's a handy solution.
