You will have to wait, or go with NVIDIA and there 3d vision surround. Only the newest ATI cards have 3d support (6850 & 6870) and according to the Tom's article you will need 3rd party software and monitors that are only available in europe at this point, and no word about whether HD3D will span across multiple displays, so it probably won't yet. Read this:

If you just have to game in 3D across multiple displays you're probably stuck with NVIDIA at this point, and since your board doesn't support SLI you would have to pretty much build a whole new rig. You will need a motherboard that supports SLI, 2x GTX 460's or above, a monitor that supports 120hz input, and the 3d vision glasses and emmiter kit. Somewhere between 800-1000 bucks probably all together.

This can be done by purchasing a 6850 or 6870 and 3d capable monitors. There is a limited number of monitors available that currently support Eyefinity with 3D but more will come with time. If you have the money you can find more information on supporter hardware here: http://www.amd.com/us/products/technologies/amd-hd3d/Pa...

There is no mention of AMDs 3D solution working with eyefinity either on the AMD site or on the sites for the 3rd party drivers that AMD is partnering with.

buy 3 of these:

and this:

and then when prices on 3d monitors come down upgrade your whole system to a crossfire board and get another 6870 and a 3d monitor(s). Be prepared to reduce some setting to play in full resolution across all 3 displays with a single 6870, but your board only supports 1 card and I can't recommend a 5970 if you want to go 3d in the future.

Well then buy 2x 6870s, it's within your budget. I would still wait for the 3d displays to come down in price.

If you have the space you might consider one of the dlp 3d projectors, you can get a 100" plus screen for like 600 bucks that is 3d compatable, they are alot better value than 3d monitors right now.
