Well, I know vram is the issue here which is why I'm thinking about the 2gb version cards. Technically money isn't the issue, but if I get 2x 580s the PSU will need an upgrade, and then the cards would sit idle most of the time, and when it's being loaded it would only be running SC2 95% of the time. So it's really a question of utility.
I know powering 12m pixels is demanding, and wouldn't dream of doing this if I played more demanding titles like Metro or Crysis. But I don't. I just play SC2, and Dota, and Brood War from time to time. And since SC2 isn't very demanding when it comes to GPU, and that being a strategy game, I don't really need 60+ fps, I'm just asking do you guys think 2x 2gb GTX 460s would cut it when it comes to using 3x 30" monitors.
Hmm if I'm seeing this right, the aspect ratio is maintained and everything just looks a lot larger right? So kind of like 1680x1050 vs 1920x1200 vs 2560x1600 in that you don't see more of the map in any of those resolutions, just things look bigger right?
And is this on bnet?
All aspect ratios see a specific amount in height.
the wider it is the more width to the image.
so 5:4 users get shafted
16:10 have a little bit less than 16:9 users (arrgh!)
same view position for 4:3 16:10 and 16:19 you can see the extra width

ah and the thing iwas looking for first http://uk.gamespot.com/features/6251839/index.html
just look at the jump from 5:4 to 16:9... its an extra 50% viewing space! (well strictly its 1.42222222 times the amount)
and a gif as well http://h-6.abload.de/img/sc2_fov36k6.gif
