No on both. Best you can do is sell your 560 and try get a 580. It's unclear wether or not you want to game with that dualscreen setup or just use one screen. If you're only going to use one screen when playing games a 560 coould hold up but it won't be a feast for your eyes.

Definitely gonna need a new card or two to drive those games at that resolution. I'd recommend taking a look through this thread to get an idea of what your best bet is, but I'd recommend looking at a 7950 or 670 (the 4 GB version). That's a beastly resolution and you're gonna need an equally beastly GFX setup to drive it.

I'm curious though, how are you gaming on the two monitors? Don't the bezels in the middle get in the way?

I doubt that 560ti SLI could handle 5120x1440p. I would look into a 7950 or 7970, if you sold your current 560ti. The 3GB frame buffer will help with that resolution.

I had 560ti SLI and it had trouble with single monitor gaming at 1080p maxed out with current gen games such as crysis 3 and what not. At that res, you'd want dual 7950's or a titan or something like that

Should be good. That's a very good card for the money you spend on it. But your 560tis will definitely struggle. I max VRAM at 1080p with a 560ti. Have to turn off anti aliasing all the time and lower settings with newer games.

I had SLi GTX 560 Ti and from experience I can tell you that they won't cut it with new games and at that resolution. You should aim at a high end single GPU such as the HD7970 or GTX 680.

 

Perhaps if your budget is limited try one of their little brothers (GTX 670 or 7950)  but make sure you have at least 2GB DDR5.
