2560x1440 is the same aspect ratio so it all works out.

Like I said above the height difference is a non issue, your never playing on the 2 side monitors unless its an RTS. Even them its minimal.

The side monitors are so you don't have to look left/right as much when gaming. They give you a bigger field of view, but all the action takes place on the center screen.
Um, thats not what I'm trying to say. What I'm trying to say, is that you can have a 16:9 ratio monitor, but the scaling into 1080p won't be right, unless the higher res 16:9 monitor has 4 times the resolution. That means, for every 4 pixels on the higher res monitor, it would be like 1 pixel on the 1080p monitor. 2560x1440 is roughly 2 times the res as 1080p, so how do you expect a 1080p picture to fit on 2560x1440 with fullscreen, with out extreme distortion?

Yeah I realized what you were saying shortly after posting.

I was reading into the PPI and the differences between 2560x1440 and 2560x1600.

Didn't quite think about that particular point. I went back to the Mac store and watched their demo video and saw how it was a little blurry looking as it was probably shot in 720P. (Kinda like SD Broadcast on a HDTV)

I will say the damn magic mouse sucks for that 27in screen the DPI and precision were not very good. Felt like a Ball mouse. (Even after putting it on the fastest setting in preferences)

Will have to upgrade all three monitors, if I start with one. Luckily I can probably sell these LG's off relatively easy @ $250-$300 each.

I had the same problem. I had 3x 20" 1600x900 and a 23" 1920x1080. I tried the 23" in the center and you just can't get different monitor sizes to look right together no matter what you do. I was always switching the center one for single monitor and back for eyefinity.....pain in the ass!
I actually just scrapped the eyefinty for a single 27" 2560x1440 and kept the 23" for a side monitor. I have to admit that I miss eyefinity a bit, but it is so nice to not have to mess with it or mod config files to get some games to work right. Have to admit. 27" 2560x1440 looks amazing, just wish I had deep pockets to run 3 of them. I would have to have at least 2x HD7970 or GTX680 to even get into that game and would still want more.......One of these days!
