Windows 7: Once again seeking some advice

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit RTM
Once again seeking some advice

Hello again seven gurus!

Recently, due to some unfortunate acts (apartment got broken into ) I've had to rework my current system and set-up. The insurance company has been excellent in helping me replace what got stolen or damaged but I've decided to go a different route with my display. Of course I ordered a bunch of parts without really putting the research into it as I should have so now I'm kinda sorta in a pickle if you will.

Since my Westinghouse 47" was stolen, I replaced it with an LG 42" that I've mounted to the wall. I have also acquired two Asus 22" that I hope to mount in portrait mode on either side using and arm wallmount to allow me to put them at a slight angle outward. I was running two 9500GTs 1GB GPUs in SLI but have since upgraded to a single GTX 560ti 1GB GPU. My mobo also has an 8200 GPU onboard if needed. I was planning on running the 42" and one of the 22" off of the 560ti while the third 22" was being run by either a 9500GT or the onboard 8200.

Here's the kicker though, I'm going to need some software to make this work. After doing the leg work I should have done beforehand, I realized that Nvidia's Surround is not going to work for me since I want a PLP (portrait landscape portrait) setup and not a PPP or LLL one. I have stumbled across a few different options which MAY work but have yet to get any replies from the software vendors. I will be using my set-up primarily for gaming with some multi-media thrown in on occassion. The software I'm looking at is...
Pivot + ScreenMaxNow seems like a wonderful combination. I may only need Pivot but I'm not sure.
SoftTH seems like a real winner from the guys over at WSGF but it sees very little in the way of updates.
Does anyone have any experience with these applications or recommendations for me? I have seen some hardware solutions like Mview and such but I was hoping to resolve this via software
