What I do on my dual monitors is disable one of them when I play games. I do this with software called UltraMon. UltraMon makes the taskbar extend to the other monitor and it lets wallpaper cover both screens or have a different wallpaper on each screen. its really cool. it also lets you manage your monitors alot easier.
