There’s very little performance difference at 1680x1050 and 1920x1200. In both cases, the 2GB card adds a couple of frames per second without anti-aliasing. There’s less effect with anti-aliasing, and at 1680x1050, there’s even an imperceptible dip.
“Where’s 2560x1600?” In order to run our 30” Dell 3007WFP at its native resolution, you need a dual-link DVI input (there’s no DisplayPort input available). Actually getting a dual-link output from DisplayPort requires an active DisplayPort-to-DVI adapter like this one, though. Without that $100 part, you’re limited to single-link resolutions, and unfortunately we couldn’t get the active adapter to our lab in time. Looks like the 5760x1080 and 5760x2160 benchmarks later in this story will have to suffice for the time being.
