What about a card with 2 video outputs? That way you could use
MergedFB/twinview which is faster than Xinerama, because it shares a
single frame buffer between both screens.
Currently there are a lot of cards of this kind, mostly nvidia/ati but i
don't know if they can handle the resolution that you want.
