Resolution problem with dual monitors

Hello, Recently i updated my video card to a PNY geforce 8400gs (PCI) card, i have two monitors hooked up, Primary monitor is a 22" LG with a native resolution of 1920 x 1080, my secondary monitor is an ACER 22" with a native resolution of 1680 x 1050.

I am having 2 problems with the this setup.

1. When i ever i play videos online at fullscreen it becomes very choppy (did not do this with old 128mb embedded card)

2. When i try to set the 2nd monitor to its native resolution it will shift the viewing area over to the left by a view inches. I have tried to controls built into the monitor and nvideas control panel but nothing will move it over enough.

Has anyone seen a problem like this before

If you disable the second monitor, are the games still choppy? Where you running the 22" as your primary with the integrated card?

i think i have the choppy videos figured out, just poor quality uploaded to youtube, i tried Hulu and it was fine at full screen, but i am still having problems with trying to put the second monitor to is native widescreen resolution.

and yes i did have the 22" connected to the intergrated card as my primary monitor and it worked fine at the native resolution, it was only after i installed the new video card that i started having problems

Have you tried downloading the drivers for the ACER monitor from ACER's website?

Dual monitors with different aspect ratios

I have a new Windows 7 system to which I want to connect two monitors. One is a 22" 16:9 format, and the other is a 19" 4:3 format. If I set the resolution for the 16:9 HD, nothing but the 'theme' shows on the 4:3 because everything is off the edge of the monitor. My card has dual DVI inputs. Can my 4:3 monitor be somehow set to show the 16:9 content, or do I have to match aspect ratios.
