Oh and Btw, i tried battlefield 3 at high quality settings with just 2x AA at 7880*1440( bezel compensated), and the 3 GTX580's are having a hard time keeping it playing smooth(60 Fps)....I basically have to disable AA altogether, so i'm really finding the limits to them.....Heck i don't see any card anytime soon being able to pull off 8X AA at this resolution in battlefield 3 like we see at lower resolutions anytime soon and keeping it playable, as the amount of memory needed would be massive to begin with...Never mind playing at the ultra settings on the game...
