Half-Life 2 is the classic first person shooter. It is a DX9 title. At this point DX9 doesn't really tax graphics hardware with any of its "features," and any benchmarking comes down to a pushing raw pixels. Half-Life 2 does not like the extra video RAM provided by the Eyefinity6, and until you get to Eyefinity and beyond it doesn't like CrossFireX.

A single E6 card blasts pat 60fps in 5x1-P, and doubles it in 5x1600x900. While Half-Life 2 isn't considered close to demanding, this should bode well for Left4Dead 2 and Team Fortress 2 players.
