I am looking for a graphic that supports Eyefinity, but with lower power. What I mean by "lower power" is lower performance and lower power literally. I don't need performance and heat of ATI 5 Series, but I love their multi-monitor supports and price range.

What options do I have?

Eyefinity is a technology included in all of ATI's new 5xxx cards, no other cards have Eyefinity tech. From cheapest/least performance first the options are as follows.

5750 5770 5850 5870 5970

The 5 series cards are quite power conscious too. Your choice should depend on what your wanting to do with the setup, gaming or office work?

There is also the Matrox triple-head-to-go that can power three monitors but grabbing a 57xx is going to be easier/cheaper.

Another thing to consider is that with Eyefinity one of your monitors needs a display port connection.

The ATI Radeon HD 5670 has Eyefinity support and is pretty cheap (under 100$).

Engadget has an article about it: ATI Radeon HD 5670 brings DirectX 11 and Eyefinity to the budget-minded market

Q: What options do I have?

A: None. Eyefinity is only integrated in the ATI 5xxx series, period.

You can wait and hope for ATI to release "budget" 5xxx serie with Eyefinity support.
