My System Specs

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
I am ordering 480's soon but they will be watercooled ,gotta let my wife get over 1.5K worth of monitors first. I dont really care about 3D yet , maybe in a couple of years. I am running most games at about 6025? X1200 on the 275
