Default Extended Desktop Question

Hi yall

I recently bought a new SAMSUNG SYNCMASTER 23inch monitor, i had a 19inch before but didnt want to throw it away and since my Video Card (Radeon HD 4870) can do extended desktop, i gave it a try.

It works perfectly, but i just want to ask this:

My Samsung is the primary one and my 19in is extended to the left of my monitor, i tried playing NBA LIVE 08 on the new 23inch, but NBA LIVE's resolution can only go so high (best quality is playing on my 19inch).

So i want to ask, IS THERE A WAY where i can put selected programs to open on my 19inch monitor (NBA LIVE 08)?

The only way i know is to switch the 19inch back as the primary, but i dont want to switch back and forth.

Any ideas?

You could start the game in windowed mode and drag it across to the 19" then maximize into full screen.
