7770 Eyefinity

Heya people

I am currently in the process of acquiring 2 Dell 2001FP (1600x1200) in addition to my U2410 (1920x1200) and I would like to upgrade my current graphic setup. Currently I have a single 4850 driving my U2410, but I'd love to have a single card output to all my 3 monitors and thus save space and heat output because that 4850 is a hot bugger.

3-screen-eyefinity with 2x(1600x1200) and 1x(1920x1200) is around 6.100.000 pixels, whereas 3-screen-eyefinity with 3x(1920x1080) is around 6.200.000 pixels so any eyefinity results should be almost the same though I have been unable to find eyefinity reviews of the 7770.

I was looking at the 7770 because it can run eyefinity, has a low TDP and is inexpensive. My only worry is that it won't have the horsepower to run anything at the resolution I'll be playing at. The most demanding game I will be playing is D3 whenever it is out.

tl;dr: Would a 7770 be decent for D3 at 5120x1200?'

Edit: Been looking at more benchies and comparing relative 6870 performance with 7770 performance and it appears that 6870 is barely okay for eyefinity, and a 7770 is around 30% slower than a 6870. So I'll probably end up with a 7850.

D3 is out next week btw..

7770 sounds a little woeful for that kind of a setup, mid-range+ is definitely where you want to be.
