Two ways you can do this: Either with ATi EyeFinity, or (what you're probably going to want to use), windowed mode. You'd have to edit your games config files to enable windowed mode and a custom resolution (in your case, it would have to be no taller than your smallest screen, so 2720x768 (for Oblivion, anyway.. haven't tested other games)

The Settings .cfg or .ini file is usually in your Documents folder in a folder the game created. I forgot exactly where Oblivion's were, but just look around in there and you'll find 'em

Nope, gotta edit the config files. It isn't too bad.
