Hi dudes/dudettes

I have a problem deciding how to do with my GPU(s)

I currently sit on my sig-rig and since I cant use more then 2 screens with the current GPU I need to invest, badly. My current plan is to buy 2 x MSI 6950 TF3 and be fireing up Eyefinity asap, then go all out when 7990/7970 finally arrives. Problem is I wanna of course use my computer to play some BF3, WoW, Skyrim w/e at decent FPS in 5x1 or 3x1.

Im really ambivalent about it cause I cant stand lag/stuttering and Im a fan of Ultra settings . My GTX295 worked perfect on my 30" Samsung on highest-highest in almost all games I´ve played but with my new screens it wont work out.

So basically small upgrade -> 7990 later together with Ivy Bridge or
6990+6970 now and put them on water + Ivy Bridge and skip 7xxx

On a side note I plan to use the 6950CF in my HT game computer after 7xxx hits so they wont go to waste later.

Money is not a problem but Im not inclined to spend 1500 in my overpriced country and then upgrade in 9 months.

Plox help ladies and gentlemen

For 3x1 or 5x1 (2560x1600/1400) the minimum is 2 x 6990 medium to low settings.

For 3x1 (1920x1200) you can get a way with a single 6990 medium low setting. 6990 +6970 medium to high settings.
