Default Is Eyefinity worth spending $350+?

I have one VGA LCD HDTV as my main monitor, but I can buy two 19" ASUS monitors for $125 each so thats $250, plus another hundred for the active Display Port adapter.

I Bought a 5770 to do lots of gaming (FPSs and Racing) and I love having peripheral vision as it helps with your performance when playing a game, but I still dont know what I should really do at this point.

I have about $500 laying around for games, but I dont want to spend more than a couple hundred just for a couple of monitors.

What do you all suggest?

I wouldn't get a 19in monitor for eyefinity, that's for sure. As Dan said, with the current setup, I'd say no.
