Default Surround Gaming Oddities Requiring Help - DOA Second Card :(

So i finally have everything set up to run into two small problems and one bigger one.
1) I don't know the best way to set up the monitors on my desk
2) How to make it so that it doesnt stretch the monitors as much as it does when I'm in desktop mode
3) Every game i set to my appropriate resolution in a game it seems to make is grossly disproportion. As it seems like its the wrong resolution as in it seems like the top half of everything is missing...

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
