Sounds like a consistent issue with the monitor in question. How do you have it hooked up, DVI? Is the cable dual link?

Since they all display the same res and refresh it should still work. When I tried 2 Dell 1080p screens with my NEC 1200p screen it said I need matching resolution monitors to run Surround. All 3 monitors mentioned are matching resolution.

Now that I have models to go by, it appears that particular monitor has issues due to its scaler. If you Google, you aren't the only one having that same problem and it isn't Nvidia specific. Happens on Macs and AMD cards alike. Try making the GPU do scaling instead, or try custom resolutions and timings.
