it should be pretty smooth(Probably). even on Max settings on 1920x1200 you'll get 120+fps and i think even on higher resolutions you'll still get smooth fps :D

Yeah, well, I'll be going with 5760x1080 (3x 1080p monitors). I hope I can max it out with AA too and still get 60+ FPS :) Would be wonderful.

Yeah, goes without saying, i'm sure you can run it on that resolution with no problems, you may need to tweak some options here and there to get a stable 60+ fps(probably not gonna happen), i believe that won't be necessary even though a small tweaks wouldn't hurt adjusting them :P
