I use (2) 1920 x 1080 displays with a 1280 x 1024 between. I use Display Fusion to scale and align the screens for a continuous look with triple monitor wall paper. I purchased the "Pro" version, but there is a free version that works well too.

As far as I know you will never have perfect alignment with different sized displays.

The images are different in physical size and inherently to that in resolution, there is no getting around
that while the displays are set to their native resolution.
