I've never had any problems with dual 1280×1024 connected to a card driven by
xf86-video-ati. OTOH, I've not really used newer than R300-series, but I
still wouldn't expect problems.
3D is fine, and I wouldn't switch to a single 1920×1200 display: I quite like
being able to run something full-screen on one monitor...
