on the r9-290/290x xfire is arguably as good or even better then SLi (depends on who you ask, the bridge-less xfire really works well)

on the 280/280x xfire is clearly 2nd rate compared to SLi... so it does matter what cards you're talking about; i've seen some horendous SLi results at high resolutions on the gtx970, though i think that's more to do with RAM limitations then SLi issues.

oh wowzer... you bought 2x r9-295x2? going for the serious gpu power i see. lol

At that point i'd say grab yourself some nice 24" 1080p 144hz monitors (IMHO 24" is the max size 1080p looks good when at desktop distance, if you plan to have the monitors a little further away then normal then 27" monitors work good too); something like these-
