I personally value screen area more than ultra-high quality, so i'd go for the 3-display option.

DON'T EVEN THINK TWICE!! Once you've been converted over to SurroundGaming (and using 3 monitors to multitask) you'll never go back to 1 monitor. Trust me, I can't even look at my wife's LCD just sitting there alone on her desk, it just sickens me. I've spent the last 8 months trying to convert as many of my fellow Overclock.net brothers (and sisters) as possible.
I don't care what size your 3 monitors will be, I'm currently using SoftTH for my surround gaming (I'm also a member of the forum and softTH is free). This MViewer is an alternative to triple head to go. It's being sold in china for $267. Also, widescreen gaming forum is a great source for surround gaming. In there forum they have a section dedicated to other type of TH2G alternatives (suck a MViewer and SoftTH) as well as TH2G itself.
In January I will be building a new rig (only my mouse, keyboard and Case will remain) with TH2G, either a core i9 or dual 6-core opterons (whichever is cheaper and available) and 3 LCD monitors. The biggest drawback to SoftTH is that it doesn't use SLI or crossfire. So far it can only work with 1 card. Because of that I'm going to bite the bullet and buy TH2G so I can use my new SLI or CF rig. If you do decide to use eyeinfinity, then that's even better than TH2G & ultramon (good luck finding some 5700/5800 series GPU's).
Google Search about the product
-Just look at my screenshots for more pros
You get to use Ultramon, you won't regret it.
-You have to move back a little when you plan games now. Since your eyes will have a lot more to view
-You'll have a MASSIVE headache that first day, but after that day it'll go away.
-Will generate some more heat in your corner (where your PC is located).
