I'm currently running a 5040 x 1050 Eyefinity desktop with two native 1680 x 1050 monitors and one
1920 x 1080 (one of my 3 originals burned out and I had to slip this last one in as a replacement).  While this setup is acceptable for most purposes, text on the 1920 is blurry due to the default stretching that Eyefinity performs when using mismatched resolutions.

With Eyefinity disabled, I'm able to force the 1920 to display 1680 x 1050 using the "Enable GPU scaling/Use centered timings" option in CCC and an application called Custom Resolution Utility.  This works great (text shows up crisp and clear), however, when I switch back to Eyefinity, the 1920 monitor stretches back out across the entire screen even though the "Enable GPU scaling/Use centered timings" options still show the correct settings. 

Is this impossible to achieve with Eyefinity?  If so, can anyone shed some light on why?  Is there some physical limitation, or is it just not supported by the software?  Any insight appreciated!

As far as they why. I would imagine because its alot harder to code for mismatched resolutions. eyefinity has always been a "use monitors of the same resolution or bust" kinda deal ever since it was implimited. Definetly not a hardware limitation.
