Windows 7: Cursor going outside the game in dual monitor setup

Cursor going outside the game in dual monitor setup

Quite often I find with games on a dual monitor setup is that Id find the cursor is on the other monitor and if I accidentally click there I lose focus of the game and some games wont tab back in.

Is there any way to prevent the cursor going outside the game in fullscreen?

Has to be a cheaper way but if you don't have it Ultramon,

Realtime Soft UltraMon

can do just that with a hotkey combo.

Dual Monitor Setup w/ Dual ATI 4870x2
What is the best setup for running dual monitors with dual video cards? Plug one monitor into one card and the other into the second card with Crossfire off, or turn on Crossfire and plug both monitors into the same video card? Both monitors are the same.
