Hmmm.. I have dual GeForce 780s (Asus brand) driving 2560x1440 monitors.
However, I am using the NVidia binary drivers.  The problem with using
nouveau is that with that much more real-estate video can bog if you are
doing much beyond launching xterms. In particular, full screen video has
noticeable tearing and even dragging windows across the desktop looks
glitchy. To be clear, it works, just that I hate seeing the visual tearing.

On another system I have a Geforce 650. It also drives a single 2560x1440
monitor without issue.
