Sometimes it can be glorious.
Wind the clock back not too many years and widescreen was a hassle 99% of the time. Triplewide is the future!
On a more serious note... I've debated this myself recently, and decided to go with a second Surround rig; you can always game on the centre monitor only if a game really won't do Surround, but for general productivity and games that do work... Surround is peerless. It does take a lot of power to max it out, however. Still, if you're willing to turn settings down, a single GTX680 can cope with 5760x1200 very well indeed. I wouldn't know how to work any more if I lost the ability to have Word, Excel and miscellaneous other applications open and visible all at the same time. Going to a single screen (on a laptop) for productivity programs when I'm mobile is really jarring.
If you're after a very high res monitor for photo editing, I'd say a single 27"er is a better bet initially... after all, if you get the urge, you can always buy two more to use in Surround.
