The XFI will be fine for your single monitor at that resolution.
The Diamond AMD ATI Radeon HD 5870PE52G Eyefinity 6 Edition has 6 mini Display Ports only. There are no DVI or HDMI ports on that card.
If you're not intent on setting up a six-display Eyefinity system then skip this one, it's not worth it.
The XFX HD587XZNFC should be fine for your purposes.
