My System Specs

Default

You have to realize how much more work a graphics card (or a pair of cards) must work at much higher resolutions (eyefinity/surround). A setting that may work in single monitor mode such as all settings cranked high, will bring a multi-monitor system a lot of the times to its knees. I am running Dragon Age 2 for example in medium settings with AA cranked up, otherwise i have to leave it completely off in high settings.

To summarize, its a known issue, the higher the resolution the harder a graphics card has to work to display all those pixels on screen.
