Hmm at that res, you'd be pushing ~30% more pixels than 2560x1600 (5292000 vs 4096000). According to the reviews I've seen, that's already nearing the top of their "playable" performance for demanding titles.
The extra Vram on the Palit version would certainly help. I'm actually planning on buying some myself, but at the same time, the 560s may not have the muscle to even use AA or high tessellation and keep acceptable framerates across 3 monitors.
Really it depends on what kinds of games you want to play, but I think if you're determined to go with a 3 monitor setup, you'll probably want to look at a 570/580 setup. That or look into ATI cards. Of course if Crysis/Metro/AvP aren't regulars in your library you may be just fine.Edited by Booty Warrior - 3/13/11 at 1:49am
