Please note that you can have up to 1680x1050 per LCD with the TH2G,
note just 1280x1024. So the combined maximum resolution will be 5040x2100
(2x 3x1680x1050). Which resolution do you need per LCD?

Please note that you need dual-link DVI outputs. However, to my knowledge,
any 8-series and up cards with two DVI connectors have dual-link outputs. So any
recent card should just do it - at least my XFX GTX 260 Black Edition is working
just fine at 5040x2100 :-)

Yes - if you want to "move windows from one GPU to the other one", then
you need Xinerama.
