Crossfire 7850 at 5760x1080

Hello, was just wondering if 2 7850's would be able to power a three monitor eyefinity setup at reasonably FPS with decent settings in games, such as Skyrim, Battlefield 3 and Borderlands 2. I do plan on upgrading my current system for when i get the third monitor, and this is what it will be after the upgrade:

System Specs:
Intel Core i5 3570k 3.4 GHz
16GB corsair vengeance 1600MHz
MSI Z77a-G43
Radeon HD7850 OC to 950MHz x2
500GB 7200RPM western digital hard drive, SATA 3
240GB Crucial M4


would this be able to get around 40-60FPS in the aforementioned games at 5760x1080 resolution on high-max settings? or is medium to high settings more reasonable?

Thanks in advance.

2x 7850's in crossfire is a good solution for EyeFinity resolutions. I have a single 7950 running 5760x1080 for my games. I definitely cant max most current games but can get close enough that the difference is neglible in most instances. With 2 7850's you'll have more power than a single 7950 BUT you will have less ram. This normally wouldnt make a difference but at EyeFinity resolutions the more Ram the better. You may want to consider a single 7950 than adding another 7950 for crossfire later, but even if you dont want to consider a 7950, 2x 7850's is a good choice.

Thankyou very much for the help, I don't really have the money to just scrap my current graphics card and replace it with this, I just wanted a good upgrade, if this will get over 30-40fps in most games at higher than like the lowest graphic settings then I will be happy, thank you :)

I'm getting 50-60fps at 3940x1080 (which is ofcourse useless because the centre of the screen is bezel) on borderlands 2 on ultra but increasing that by a third and adding another graphics card wouldn't decrease that performance too much would it? As I only have one 7850 at present?

You should be able to play games well on 3 monitors with 2 7850s. Won't be able to play bf3 at max settings but normal should be perfectly fine.

No i didn't think battlefield 3 at max would be that high fps as my current system seems to struggle with it now on only one monitor.
