As far as i know you need 3 screens using the same connection (so all DVI, not a mix of say DVI and HDMI), i don't think it is possible to surround with 2 monitors, As far as brands go it doesnt matter.

It's not possible to do surround gaming with 2 monitors. it's designed for 3 monitors. using 2 graphics on sli

besides. dual display gaming is a bad idea... especially for FPS. the crosshair would be in the bezel of the 2 monitors and you won't be able to aim. I tried using eyefinity. it was terrible. probably not a good idea for driving either.

You'd still be able to use two monitors, just not really for gaming. The only game that would be good with two monitors is Supreme Commander. You could still use both monitors to multi-task though.
