I do not know what you are refering to.
Maybe I am misunderstaning something here. But doesn't surround mean all three screens connected as one?
If that is the case I have no intentions of having all 3 as one solid screen.

In BF3 you can be zoomed in with a sniper rifle and still see more on your peripheral monitors than some do with a single screen just running around. So lets say I am on a budget, love FPS, but don't care as much about the eye candy as the game play. Pop in a dual GPU card with 1GB Vram, run it at medium, and have a distinct advantage over your opponents. The truth is there are so many cards, configurations, and desired outcomes that companies offer a variety of solutions. I recommend to start by knowing what you want to accomplish, what hardware can do it, and get opinions of others with similar desires. As they say to each his own.
You work for Evga correct?
Then here is my dilema or intended use. Left: Screen 1 Middle: screen 2 Right: Screen 3
Screen 1 will (or might not be used at all) be used to browse internet or watch (listen) to a recorded show from the directv dvr
Screen 2 will be what I will be gaming on.
Screen 3 will have a wiki page open to help me get through different quest (i know this takes the fun out of the game but it is how i like to play.)
If you do work for EVGA and know about this card will it do these for me.
Again my budget is about $450 not including the instore credit. And agian I can't SLI even though my board allows it. I can't give up any other perifial cards.
In case I did not update my specs my Mobo is Asus Crosshair 5 formula and 16 gigs of Patriot Viper Extreme. Everything else is the same. I only added this specs because I think it will allow me to multitask with no issues.
