is that correct?
It doesn't matter how you set it up, so long as all of the monitors are plugged in to the correct ports (DVI to DVI, HDMI to HDMI, etc.). I just randomly plugged two monitors into my top card and the remaining monitor on the bottom card. You can do the reverse and it would still work.
Once you go to set up Surround, you can rearrange the order of the monitors however you like so that it flows smoothly from left to right, and vice versa:
Suffice it to say, the drivers are robust enough that you can plug it in however you want and still be able to configure it correctly.
As far as it affecting performance, it will not make any difference. The rendering of images are still split amongst all present GPU's.
