Default Sapphire 5870 (or any 5870) and U2711

Does anybody have any experience driving a Dell u2711 using a 5870? It's native resolution is 2550x1440. Would the card be overwhelmed by it? With such a resolution you probably could back off of AA a lot, which takes some stress off the card. Or, conversely, you could drop down some in resolution. I really don't want to go to a 5970 or CF right now.

You thoughts please.

Thank you.

Take a look at SKYMTL's 5870 review here: ASUS Radeon HD 5870 1GB V2 Review and pay attention to the 2560x1600 results. Yours would probably be similar.
Whether those framerates are acceptable is your opinion.
