Of course dropping settings will help, I haven't ever tried my 6950 with M2033, but my experiences were with 2x 5850's, and it ran great for the most part (absolutely maxed at 1920x1200), but there was times that it would suddenly cripple that setup, and I don't mean 25 fps, I mean 5, just flat out break its legs and throw it to the ground and laugh at it.
If you read my post well enough, then you would have gotten my drift. The horsepower gain of your cards compared to mine is much bigger than the additional work 1920x1080 will give compared to 1280x1024. It is only 600 pixels wider than what is basically a vertically bigger variety of 720p. The growth in horsepower of your setups is bigger than the growth in workload (at least in D3D 10 mode).
