Radeon R9 280 MSI Gaming 3GB Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon R9 280 MSI Gaming 3GB Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon R9 280.
This edition comes with a custom cooling system called "Twin Frozr", which reduces the card's temperature under load, significantly and comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was increased from 827MHz to 933MHz, while the Boost clock is now of 1000MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 3% performance boost over the standard edition and so this edition is more powerful than GeForce GTX 760.

i have a MSI radeon R9 280 3Gb gaming addition GPU in crossfire with MSI radeon R9 280X 3GB GPU. im worried if i purchase a 2560 x 1440 UHD monitor that it wont be supported. also is it worth buying a monitor or TV at HD / UHD?
regards
