I like the free version of Display Fusion (which is all it pretty much does on the free version). But the devs at our company really like the full version Display Fusion. –  Hondalex Aug 24 '10 at 17:11
    
Yup - this is what I went with. See the link in the update. –  Marcus Aug 24 '10 at 17:57

Ultramon is a nice program to configure multiple screen set ups on Windows: http://www.realtimesoft.com/ultramon/

Not sure if it answers your question, because I have not used it for a long time, but its worth a look.

I believe the nVidia Control Panel has that capability but you do have to be using one of their adapters.
