Hello! I have a bit of a head scratcher here that I'm sure can be done somehow but I've no clue how to myself so wondering if anyone with any technical knowledge can help! i'm using a Gigabyte Radeon 7870 OC

Hopefully everything in the image makes clear what I'm trying to do but long story short, I'd love to be able to setup BioShock (and possibly many other games) to play on my stacked dual monitor setup. I'm a composer who uses the bottom monitor for my music software and the top for previewing the film I'm working on. So, I play the odd game as well and been looking forward to BI for ages. Finished it loved it, but the second monitor sitting on top of the other one is begging to be used. 

Normally when setup with an AMD card and eyefinity, the crosshair would be situated in between the two monitors, but I want to have the game run as normal on one monitor then extend upwards onto the other (imagine all that sky in the field of view!)

SO! Can it be done!!!??? Anyone any ideas? I imagine it may be something that needs edited in a game ini or something but as I said I haven't a clue!

Here's also my current desktop.

It is possible with 6 monitor eyefinity.. so hardware shouldn't be an issue, they just haven't bothered to insert this type of monitor configuration into the drivers cause almost nobody would use it.
