I've got both nvidia's surround and ati's eyefinity, I've found that a single 5870 is more than powerful enough to run 3 x 1680 x 1050 at max IQ on all current games. Nvidia's surround was equally easy to set up and use, but 2 gtx 480s (in my case) create so much noise and heat that i just have to give the nod to ati on this one.

I've also got 3d on surround with the gtx 480s, From my experience 2 x gtx 480 is BARELY enough to run 3 x 1680 x 1050 with 3d enabled. (close to max IQ) So if your planning on 3d in the future with your 275s get the 480s first... and a set of good active noise canceling headphones... and a personal air conditioner ;D
