30-40 is actually very acceptable given the resolution better then most cards out there. i have yet to test out my 460 SSC in terms of such res's but i know it'll be great numbers puller ^-^

Rule of thumb at 3x1280x1024 resolutions refer to benchmark scores for 2560x1600. The number of megapixels is darn close, so the FPSes should be similar. My C1 numbers are recollection, water areas tended to bog down I remember that off hand. It was still playable. @3x1280x1024 my 6850 let me do 85Hz, whereas at 3x1680x1050 it only lets me do 75Hz

Main reason I went from 3x5:4 to 3x16:10 is workstation usage. Using Photoshop and other tools in 1280x1024 is very constraining. Most softwares these days are made with a widescreen-format paradigm.

well as for my res im changing that to 1920x1080 x3(in the future) soo my 460's will be literally screaming prolly when done but i do 3D art soo i need a wider view for what i do to make my little job easier.. also to i don't do anti ailiasing cause i don't mind the jagged edges really plus to it's very minimul at 1920x1080 res

Reading the OP, my understanding is that OP wants a 3-monitor setup:-
a.purpose is general use, not for gaming
b.as cheap as possible

And it seems that most (if not all) responses put the focus at gaming and the OP is led to change his mind on the usage from general use to gaming.

For general purpose, even OP's current HD5670 supports Eyefinity and will suffice, IMHO.

If OP has changed his mind and put gaming as an important consideration, perhaps the MSI HD6950 2GB below is a good choice.
It sells at US$238 (after MIR) and fits below OP's budget of US$250 ($300 max). It has 2GB VRAM and should be unlockable to 6970. 3-monitor gaming should be quite decent.
