if your going multi monitored you'll need to spend more then what you have budget wise at this time you'll hit several performance issues in 1 card format even if it is a 2gb model atleast if it's a sli or crossfire set up with 2gb cards you'll beable to utilize it and get good frames out of your games.
for example at 5040x1050
say you play a game i'l call it game X, using todays game engines that is not only GPU extensive but also CPU extensive and you use 1 2gb model 6950.
you could get as high as maybe 20 frames-25 frames at most, while if 2 6950's were used you could actually possibility double or double and a 1/2. see where im going at? i don't know if you think 20-25fps is playable but i've played many games at 20-25fps and it sucks for me.
